Thank you Mylan for taking the initiative and creating something palatable. A million Type 2 Diabetics sigh in relief that they no longer have to stuff some foul ass fishy tablet down their throat to control blood sugar and staffers like the change in smell also :)

I always try to be helpful and tell people with high copays to "Google" the drug and usually there is a coupon/loyalty card/copay discount card/etc to be found on the company sponsored web page advertising whatever crap you just can't live without. So the lady I talked to on the phone dutifully printed out a coupon and sent it with her husband. Of course she printed the coupon for up to 75% off for cash paying customers instead of the one for a copay discount.
Upon hearing the bad news husband proceeds with a tantrum so the tech comes to me and I see that this is for the child of the lady I spoke to on the phone. I explain to man baby what the dealio is and write a note on the coupon to explain what they need to print out. Man baby throws his credit card in the drawer and gets mouthy about how "this crap happens every time I come here." Um yeah, had I not put foot in mouth about the coupons your whiney f&#%ing ass wouldn't have had any way of knowing beyond the insta-print copay what shit could cost.
To the issuers of said f#*%ing discount items: For the love of all things sane put the motherf#$&ing drug name or abbreviation of drug name in the group so when a patient has 5 or 6 of these turds in their profile we can find the right one faster than waiting for the patient to dig through a ton of useless crap they tote around to find the f#$&ing card!!!!
And I'm done...

I understand that a new allergy pill has gone over the counter. I also understand that your tiny little brain has been subliminally programmed by years of advertising campaigns that "new is better". I do not understand why you came in to debate the advantage of switching to the heavily advertised next big thing when you have complete symptom control and no adverse reactions to your current allergy pill. Use what works because if you do switch and have some weird reaction I am just gonna bust out the old "I TOLD YOU SO!" and you are not gonna like that dose of smug. This is me "Thank you for shopping at McDruggie's!" and this is you leaving "Buh-Bye!"
