Yesterday I walked into the Duane Reade near my office to pick up the test strips refill I had ordered on-line the day before. When I arrived at NYC's finest pharmacy I was informed that the Freestyle Flash meter was being discontinued and that the test strips would no longer be offered! Thankfully, the pharmacy had 100 test strips left (enough to get me through about 10 days) but charged me the full price of my prescription for them - those bastards!
So my question is - does my pharmacy have a clue as to what's going on? Is the Flash being discontinued in favor of the Lite? And if so what meter should I get, size and accuracy are most important to me. I hope this serves as a heads up to all of you with a Freestyle Flash - Abbot will be hearing from me if in fact they discontinued a meter without informing us a few months before.
Update: Did some investigative research, Abbott is still producing the Freestyle Flash strips but certain pharmacies have decided to discontinue them. I called Duane Reade and DR is one of the pharmacies that is no longer carrying the Freestyle Flash strips.
