Do you normally go to the Doc's clinic to get the shots? How frequent? Would BCBS PPO cover it? Thanks!

I have BC/BS Federal Employee Plan, which is a PPO. They do cover Bicillin, however the cost of 10 1.2 shots is 275.00 of which I have to pay 105.00.

how often do you have the shots? do you have it done at your doctor's clinic? do you find it helpful?

Thanks!

"LA Bicillin shots - prefilled Bicillan (with lidocaine is better).

-I do two 1.2 million units injected each week

-I took 2.4 million units once a week but I think twice a week or every 72 hours is the recommend dose. The shots did make me feel better but they are not at all fun.
