    I have actually had Fibro for about five years I think, but I just got a diagnosis this past week. Gotta love our country's medical care! Unfortunately, I have no medical insurance so I can't afford prescriptions. Other than medications, are there any suggestions you all can give to help cope with the disease?

    Hey,

    I can't afford prescriptions either but I am eligible to get some free from the drug companies directly and some from RX Outreach where I only pay $20 for 3 month supply. It was very easy to apply for these and it didn't take long to start receiveing my meds. And these were for some very expensive meds as well.

    I'll give you as many links as I can here and let me know if you need anymore information...

    http://www.rxoutreach.com/en/
    http://www.rxassist.org/

    Also go to the websites of the manufacturer's of the specific drugs like Pfizer, AstraZeneca etc.. and look under Patient Assistance.

    If you tell what specific medications you need to take maybe I can give you more direct links.
