The wife is 8 weeks pregnant and suffering from HG – could not even keep water down. Tried Maxalon and it didn't help.Went to hospital, put on a drip for half a day and given Zofran. Instance releaf. She was sent home with a script for 10*4mg Zofran, taken 3 times a day.Ran out of Zofran last night, HG returned so went to GP. The GP said he could only prescribe a maximum of 4 tablets at a time, or 1.3 days worth!If we need more, we need to go back to the GP for another script. In other words, we need to see a GP every 1.3 days to manage her condition.Zofran on a private script is expensive ($30 for 4 tables), we don't mind paying it for the releaf, but having to see the doctor once a day is ridiculous.Our doctor bulk-bills, but at the $30/visit, if the HG lasts until 38 weeks, it's going to cost medicare $6,300 for these scripts to be written.What do other people do to get around this?
We are a public patient going through Casey hospital for the birth.
