And no, we don't receive that authorization number until the patient has completed their quiz and the doctor has completed their lab/paperwork and submitted it. At least prescriptions can now be called in instead of being brought in by the patients. The point is, they can make you sign that waiver but they can't make you not get pregnant. However, they can do everything within their power to ensure you won't get pregnant like requiring you to be on birth control. And its a waiver - if you do get pregnant, they are not liable for the results.


    PS. I'm a licensed pharmacist.
    Wow, thanks for filling me in - that must be one tough drug!!!
