Amoxicillin cost without insurance

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin cost without insurance

amoxil

So I have been to 3 dentists so far with no insurance. The first dentist charged me 75 dollars for x rays and told me I would have to pay an additional 2000.00 to get 2 root canals and pull a tooth. I told him that wasn't possible and to just pull one tooth. He said it would be surgical so it would be an additional 243.00 dollars total without anestesia. I said forget it and he sent me home with amoxicillin and tylenol with codeine which did nothing for me.
What is wrong with me?
I called my dentist and they are trying to help me to keep cost down bc I have no insurance and xmas is right around corner so money is tight. I have a back molar that broke about 3 months ago ive been trying to save up for root canal but now I think I will need it pulled. The tooth stopped hurting and then I got the pus pocket under it that would flare up but then go down. Now its present and I can tell my gum on that side has some swelling compared to the other side.
Then i decided to try amoxicillin and that also didnt work. I am behind my computer alot and the screen is pretty bright so ive reduced the brightness substantially and bought some eye drops. I started this yesterday and the pain is still there. Im only 29 and i am hoping its not something like glaucoma. Im just trying to fix it on my own cause i have no health insurance. I have decent vision. Never wore glasses or contacts. Any ideas? Thanks.
I had an ear problem and no insurance so I paid the Dr. office to be checked out, this cost me $100 to be told I need an MRI. I saved and saved and saved every single penny to the point I refused dates simply because I wanted to get this ear taken care of. Once I found out how easy it was to save $3000 my priorities changed to saving enough to take care of my teeth as well. Later still I saved and saved and saved with a goal of having 1/2 my yearly income in my savings account.
Most larger towns have low-cost or free options for acute health care, like your local health department or a community clinic. 3) Definitely do not take amoxicillin or any other antibiotic without professional advice. It won't help a virus; won't cure most STDs if you have one after all (not reliable against either gonorrhea or chlamydia, no effect on herpes); and will screw up accurate diagnostic testing if a provider suggests testing.
I'm seventeen, in orthodontic care, and I have a severe abscess on my second tooth (the back-most one on the right, as I don't appear to have wisdom teeth), bad enough that the endodontist prescribed a one week course of amoxicillin twice daily, 875 milligrams per pill. My new dentist has recommended a root canal, but combined with the crown and buildup filling, it may well be about as expensive as an implant.
I have tried various heart meds and my only other option at this point is a very expensive operation which I cannot afford due to no health insurance. We have decided that it is worth a try with erradicating the H. pylori to see if this alters the Afib. I have a severe case of Afib which is only very inadequately controlled by medication (currently a combo of Verapimil and low dose digoxin which has proved to be my most effective medications).
we did have one(LLMD), but his license to practice in N.C. was revoked and with no insurance the cost was prohibitive! So now we are once again high and dry as far as where to go and who to see. It is truly frustrating. We keep ending up back in a rheumatologist office and they keep suggesting methotrexate which is a horrible drug that could effect her ability to have children!
She treated me with a 10 day x2 a day 875mg dosage of Amoxicillin for an ear infection and strep. While on the antibiotics I started losing my voice. I took the full course of meds and during which my sore throat and ear ache went away and my voice returned. The day I stopped taking the medication I noticed my throat was starting to hurt again. Now here I am sitting March 9th 2010 and my sore throat is terrible. I have no fever, no appitite and no congestion.
About a month or so ago, I went to the dentist for a swollen jaw and found out I had an infected tooth in the very back. She prescribed me amoxicillin. I went home and took it, 4 hours or so later I began violently puking and heaving ALL NIGHT AND MORNING. literally every half hour for 9 hours straight. So I go back and they call my OB and give me, what do u ask?
followups are every 3 months for half an hour after any diagnosis. (And truth be told, office visits ALL cost that much for all drs, it's just that insurance causes us to see only the insurance premium and the copay.) Frankly, I would like to be able to see my LLMD more often when issues crop up, but it's very hard to get an appointment, so there are more takers out there than slots on the appointment schedule.
I called a specialist to ask how much it would cost without health insurance. They estimated that it would be $3,000 to $7,000. Not just expensive, but prohibitively expensive. I’m from the Philippines, and my cousin is a doctor there, so I called him. He was appalled at the price that I was quoted, and told me to go to the Philippines to get these tests. Here’s why: Each of those two tests cost $20. For a total of $40, or the price of a cheap meal for two in the U.S.
I wonder about Lyme also. Although back in April when I had my brain MRI it showed excessive sinus thickening so I went on 3000 mg amoxicillin, for 3 weeks, then it still wasn't gone so I took zithromax, for 5 days. I didn't notice any herxing or anything, just an upset stomach from so much. I have alot of the same symptoms as you. I just recently started to take Prozac again about 3-4 weeks ago, it has made all those strange feelings worse than ever.
They pulled the tooth and crowned the two adjacent teeth, giving me a permanent bridge. The only thing that hurt was my pocketbook, as it cost me a tad over five grand. Ouch! I told all my medical people about my hcv, as well as my hairdresser and manicurist. If any of them had had a problem, I would have known to change to somebody else.
I don't think anyone will dispute that phama companies are businesses. The hard thing to swallow is the cost of the drugs - I used to take aciphex until my insurance refused to pay for it any more. It cost me $300+/month and I couldn't afford it. A lso, the fact that some doctors will prescribe only certain meds, when others may do the same thing less expensively and possibly even better.
May want to discuss with your medicare provider but that's my understanding. If its a medical emergency they may cover some of it. Dental insurance and medical insurance are billed differently with different codes, etc. If its something significant and cost is an issue, extraction may be the only option. You can ask the dental school if they know of any free clinics that may provide care. You can also contact your local dental society.
They only work on a second opionion referral. They said it would not show in my blood without a breakout and if I had it in my blood it would affect my vital organs, such as kidneys. I talked to my insurance company nurse practioner. He said it should have been swabbed and blood drawn and evaluated from the beginning. It will show up in the blood as everything shows up in your blood if it is in your body. I could never get my p dr to even lance one.
I would have no hesitation seeing the ENT if I had insurance. But I'm sure the cost of seeing a specialist, plus any tests they might run...well, that can be costly, and I honestly do not have the money. I understand my health is important, but really, what do you do if you can't afford it? I will have insurance next month, which is why I was going to just wait it out until then.
Also, With my insurance, I am able to look up the name of the medicine and it will locate the nearest pharmacies for me and tell me what the co-pay will be. Each one will be $50! Jeez, I only paid $10 for the doxy. Do you know if it will matter if they give me the generic form? The generic form of Zithromax I believe it said is azithromycin and that is only $10.
When it's more clear to your doctor that you do in fact have a bacterial sinusitis, your symptoms will be more moderate to severe, and can be treated with antibiotics that are more narrow-spectrum such as amoxicillin as a first choice. Later generation antibiotics that have broader coverage across more kinds of bacteria should be reserved for complicated infections. These are general guidelines, meant to be taken in the whole context of your health history by your doctor.
However, the neurologist takes the insurance, IV treatments possibly covered by insurance because Rx comes from neurologist, not "fringe"-type of doctors such as LLMD. Now how do I work it out? Get treatments by two doctors, of course behind the neurologist's back?
Of course this is encouraging. He doubts the insurance co. will pick up the tab though. Your guy say anything along those lines. I am looking at the Canadian sites. If I am not mistaken they get there nitazoxanide from an Indian co. (Cipla.com). My Dr was not too hot on this though. I do real estate stuff so would not be able to get it for free.
And also if you are being treated with antibiotics, which doctor do you have - Neurologist, Lyme Doctor, General Practitioner? Also, is your treatment covered by your Insurance?
Amoxicillin can cause a yeast infection, but not a "sore" per se such as you described. However, if you've been scratching down there from a yeast infection and injured some tissue, I suppose that can be confusing. It would be best to see a doctor while the sore is fresh. Usually, if you call your gyn and say you think you might have herpes and need to be seen while there is still a lesion to culture, they can get you in right away.
And if your insurance pays for it---- well, that's a plus. But for people who pay out of pocket for this ......... that's money wasted I think. We will have to agree to disagree on this.
Note that all these tests add up to high cost for us and without health insurance and with financial difficulties otherwise, we have to watch costs where we can. But I need to get back to living my life and I can't do that not living at home, having serious trouble with symptoms, and being on high dose Benadryl. It's a wonder I'm not asleep all day and night (I force myself not to be). I often can't drive (due to Benadryl). And I miss my mate, my cat, and our home.
(I've gone the alternative route before) She seemed annoyed when I pled poverty as the reason for not buying estriol instead of the bio=identical estradiol my insurance covers. My insurance covers HER....but not her alternative treatments. SO lost.
She talked about insurance not paying for biopsies. SO question is - if another GI doctor wanted to get a biopsy on me and ordered one, would Medicare cover it (does anyone know). They haven't even done a recent AFP or an ultrasound on me, either. WTF?
I've heard that antibiotics kill the spirochetes in the blood first. As the number of spirochetes in the blood drops, the immune system "sees" fewer of them and reduces antibody production. This also happens over time even without the antibiotics as the spirochetes move into tissues, joints, organs, and the nervous system. I've read that you're more likely to test false negative if you've had Lyme a year or more.
