I had always wanted to try PillPack, but wasn’t sure that my insurance would allow me to use them. They say they accept Aetna, but then I also have to wait in the mail for my meds to arrive, which I’m not always willing to do if I’m running low or they’re expensive.
I think I found a do-it-yourself alternative that I like. Even though it takes a little time to use, it’s actually not that bad.
Right now, I take about 8 different medicines to keep LAM & TSC in check as well as a few other conditions (like reflux & allergies). One of them is an immunosuppressant commonly used in kidney transplants. However, this is nothing compared to what I will be taking post-transplant. I thought this was a good teachable moment for people to understand one of the trade-offs that transplant recipients make & part of the reason why the after-care expenses can be a bit much…
