How can you get this drug treatment if a doctor doesn’t want to prescribe it to you?
First understand that whenever a doctor decides not to prescribe you a certain medication, it’s not always because that medication wouldn’t work for you. In most cases doctors have their own list of reliable medicational treatments they feel comfortable with giving out for certain conditions. Then you have other doctors who just don’t know enough and don’t really want to invest the time in order to learn about anything other than what their accustomed to giving patients.
In some cases though, you have a doctor who simply feels that based on your medical history you aren’t a good fit for a certain drug. So their actually doing what’s best for you in that moment. This doesn’t mean you can’t bring up want to use Ditropan. The best way to go about this is to ask about it in a general way as to not sound like you’re trying to tell them what to prescribe for you. Doctors don’t like this because they never know the reason for your interest in a particular brand of drug, even if you have a condition that calls for its use.
Getting a prescription drug such as Ditropan can be tough because it’s very serious due to what it does. This means the chance of serious side effects. However, if you really have the condition this drug is designed to treat then there’s no reason why a doctor shouldn’t be open to the idea of prescribing it to you. Some things that might help would be you having the ability to pay yourself.
This is important because some doctors will only prescribe what they know a certain insurance company is willing to pay for. So make it clear that you can pay out of pocket whether it’s for this drug in brand name form or as a generic. Second, do your best to sound like you’ve done your research. This will help you to feel more comfortable speaking with a doctor and not feeling intimidated. You also have the option of asking about a drug like Ditropan down the line if the treatment you’re taking now isn’t working.
In some cases you might be forced to go to another doctor (a specialist is preferred) because they might be more willing to work with you in this regard then another. This doesn’t mean a doctor who gives out prescriptions easily, just one who doesn’t have a set way of doing things where it might cut you off from different treatment options.
