Don't give up.
I know you're tired. I know you're anxious. I know the rug has been pulled out from underneath you.
But now is not the time to give up.
You found a medicine that fixed what was biologically and perhaps mentally broken, and you're living in a constant shadow of the reality of a life without it.
This is just a short season, and the future is bright. We have given you some excellent information in the past few weeks about the various GLP-1 (Mounjaro-like) medications out there. Continue to advocate for yourself, do your own research, and stay in the fight. Here are 3 action steps that you can take today if losing Tirzepatide in the short-term is a real probability.
Look up your insurance formulary and see which of these medications are covered by your Rx plan. If you don't know where to begin or even what a formulary is, begin by talking to your benefits coordinator or HR rep.
Schedule a meeting with your PCP or tell health provider and let them know what is covered. Let them know you are willing to try another GLP-1 because Mounjaro is no longer an option.
I will continue to advocate for each one of you becoming an informed and confident advocate for yourself on your health journey. We are in this together. Don't give up, not how. Keep pushing forward.
