Anyone out there on Lupron Depot?

I just did a quick search on Lupron (which I will be taking for 4-6 months to further heal my endo lesions), and found this site: EndoFacts

The site itself looks pretty useful, but the part I got excited about was this. It's a rebate form on Lupron prescriptions, and it *looks* to be a significant amount of cashola coming back. Here's the fine print, should you want to take a peek:

*This rebate is for out-of-pocket expenses, for up to $50 on your 3.75 mg prescription, or up to $175 on your -3 month 11.25 mg prescription. This offer is good for up to 6 doses of 3.75 mg or up to 2 doses of -3 month 11.25 mg, and up to $15 in savings on your purchase of generic norethindrone acetate on 6 occasions when accompanied by a prescription for Lupron Depot.

I'f I'm reading correctly, this means that I'll get $40 per month (my drug co-pay) back on the Lupron Rx, and a max of $15 per month of the estrogen ad-back (that's the norethindrone acetate) therapy. I can definitely deal with getting $205 to $315 of my out-of-pocket costs back!

I don't know that it will work for everyone (specifically those of you using Lupron during IVF protocols), but I definitely wanted to share it. Please, feel free to send it on to anyone that you think can use it.

Thanks Beth! I had to pay full price for the 3 month shot - almost $2000! Getting back any of it would be a blessing. Plus, I am supposed to have another 3 month shot in June. Stupid insurance.

Have you tried acupuncture? It helped me a lot deal with my endo. My doctor also gave me Chinese herb that really has helped me.
