    I am so frustrated I have been so sick all weekend I can't eat or drink anything including water.

    The insurance company will not pay for med I was on so they switched me back to Ranitidine on the 12th for my GERD's and I had to call the on call doctor and buy a bottle of peptobismo. between yesterday and today the bottle is almost gone.

    So I would like to know the doctor on the board for the insurance company that decides what meds you can or can not take. and why do I even bother going to a doctor I am wasting their time and mine beause if the doctor finds something that works the insurance company has the last say in weither I can have it.

    I can't afford to pay for the perscription my self so my health is at the mercy of the insurance company.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can take to help with the umbearable heart burn and Gas build up I feel like I am going to explode.

    Thank you for any help and letting me vent.

    They do have doctors on staff the review request. One of my docs used to do it for CIGNA. See if your doctor will call the insurance for a peer to peer conference. I wouldn't be able to function without my Aciphex.
