Just because your insurance denied it doesn't mean you can't get it covered, you just have to get an authorization from your pdoc stating why you need it(your doctor should have told you this!).As human beings, we deserve the best possible chance at recovery, and if neurontin is what might be the most therapeutic for you then that's what you are entitled to. I've had trouble w/ insurance not covering something. All it took was a phone call and the pharmacy even fronted some pills until it went through.
Depressives are at a disadvantage when it comes to things like this because one manifestation of our illness can involve difficulty fighting for things we need, which inevitably leads to more depression. if you are too debilitated or overwhelmed to deal with all this,let a friend or even a social worker deal with it for you. There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't be on that neurontin!!!
