Zyrtec....over the counter now!!

Posted Feb 27 2008 12:00am
Well, today our insurance turned down the medicine, Zyrtec, that Zoe has been on for about 2 years now. They made it an over the counter med, so, insurance won't pay for it anymore. We were getting 3 months from Medco for $30.00. Now, over the counter, one month costs $30.00!!! Soooo, we talked to her docs, decided to try Allegra, since it is still a prescription, works just as well as Zyrtec, but actually a little better because it doesn't pass the brain barrier, meaning it doesn't cause drowsiness like Zyrtec can. So, we are excited about trying another new med. Ha.
On another note, Dalton, my 20 year old, had his genetics done 2 weeks ago. They were actually concerned that he might have both cf genes due to his 'asthma, pneumonia, etc....' problems his whole life. Thank GOD, he is only a carrier. As a matter of fact, so far, we have had 7 of the kids tested....so much for those statistics about 25%carriers, 25%cf, 50%nothing!! All 7 so far are at LEAST carriers. Everyone sais we should play the lottery!!! Actually we do, we never win anything. Zoe's culture should be back by Friday...hoping for a clear one. We are still cough free...week four now!!! Yeah!!!!
Talk to ya'll tomorrow...thanks for your love and support...take care of YOU!!

Love,
Jada
