    Rosie is actually taking two 30 mg and one 10 mg. twice a day. Maybe it would be less expensive to get the 60 mg. capsules instead of the 30 mg. I will check into it and see if my vet will change the prescription. She was originally started on the compounded form of trilostane (which was certainly much cheaper) with my former vet but unfortunately it was not working for her. I also have recently connected with the rescue group she came from and it looks like they will be able to help with the cost of the upcoming ACTH. Thanks for your help!

    I agree, that's great news about the rescue! Also, yes, I think you'd definitely save money by switching to the 60 mg. capsule strength. Two boxes of 60 mg. will be less than the cost of four boxes of 30 mg. So if Rosie seems stable enough that you'd not need to be backing down to a lower dose again, I'd indeed request a prescription change. And do check out some of the pharmacies on that link in terms of competitive pricing.

    I'm pleased to report that I was able to get Rosie's prescription changed and the two boxes of 60 mg each month is much less expensive than the four boxes. My cost is now less than $200. a month. Thanks! She's now on 70 mg in the morning and 60 mg in the evening. I am a little concerned with some symptoms that have returned so it's possible that dosage could be increased. She is losing a lot of hair and her back legs have become very weak. It's hard for her to jump into the car so I have ordered a ramp from Amazon. Next month she will have another stim test so we will see.

    Keep us updated if things continue to change for your sweet girl. I am so glad you were able to find a way to lower the cost a bit! That is ALWAYS nice! Hope things remain fairly steady thru the coming weeks!
    Hugs,
