My hubby is currently suffering from the shingles. I had no clue as to how bad they are and the amount of debilitating pain that comes with them. He is currently taking the antibiotic and hydrocodone which barely dull the pain! Highly suggest getting vaccine. We were at walgreens last fri and he said to come back after they are all gone and get the shot...200.00bucks worth
I seem to recall that all that would be covered if I got my shot at my doctor's office was the administration of the shot, which would have been about $40 of the $160... SO... I had the doctor write me a prescription for the shot and I took it to the base hospital at MacDill AFB and they administered the shot. Note that they do not always have the vaccine on hand so it is best to call ahead to be sure, or if you are going to the base you can just drop in (with your prescription) they will not file the prescription for you until you receive the shot...
u can be sure as soon as hubby is better he will be at the VA getting his shot..I have neverf seen something like this take a person DOWN!
please get those shots if you can..hate to see anyone go thru this horrible thing.
hydrocodone is not touching the pain have to call and get something else for the pain today..ITS A BEAST FOR SURE!!
I had to pay for mine - around $200 - my dad and my brother-in-law had shingles and from what I saw I would do anything to prevent it or at least get a milder case. Very painful! Babbs455, I hope your husband will feel better soon!
Older dogs make wonderful pets, too!!
