Thanks everyone.

I'm sure my pdoc would write a prescription for brand name if I asked. He'll probably do the pdoc equivilant of rolling his eyes, but I'm sure he'll do it.

My insurance *does* cover name brands. You just have to pay the nonformulary payment, which I've been doing all along.

I have always thought there was a difference between name brand and generic in Klonopin. There probably is in all my medications, but I can't say I'd notice if my metformin was a bit off, or most other meds. Klonopin has a distinct and relatively quick acting effect. So differences are far more noticeable. The only other medication I take that works as noticeably and quickly is Frova, the migraine medication, and that one hasn't come out in generic form. I wonder if I'll notice a difference when it does?

I wrote an email to the national office to see if this is indeed national policy. If it isn't, maybe I can talk to the pharmacy about it. But given the large number of mixups they've had lately with my prescriptions, I think I'd just as soon switch to another pharmacy. I'm sure my doctors would appreciate not being called as often. This one is enormously convenient, but I'm not otherwise tied to them.
