I just got an email from the pharmacy that the catapres patches have not yet been renewed...they list the medication by part of the number and the quantity so I know it is the patches... 8 patches for $879. So each time we lose a patches in a pool or something it is like throwing away over 200 dollars. That HAS to be a rip off. There is a generic but it is awful. really huge and burns. I have been working on this for two weeks and now we are wearing our last patches so they sure as heck better get this fixed. I am afraid our docs are gonna be out an this is going to be ugly due to the holidays. That is why I started so early.
