Epilepsy in our house looks like taking two anti-seizure meds twice daily and wondering... why does our health insurance, Blue Cross, only cover one med?

Topamax. Which Rhett takes very little of, therefore it costs very little.

The Trileptal? He's at the top of the range based on his weight and it just barely keeps the seizure monsters at bay. We can NEVER be late with it or forget as the seizures will start within the morning.
Anyway....short story long, Trileptal is NOT covered.

And yes, we have it much, much better than our American friends when it comes to coverage and health care (just my opinion....) but it's still not perfect.
