    Hey All,

    I need some help. My husband was laid off back in June, and we had thoughts of him going to the Military and I had asked you all a bunch of questions about that (thanks for all the input) we decided against that. Well now we still have our house up for sale because we don't want to stay in this area. But I'm worried sick because with my dh union job he was at isn't picking up and the way it works at his job is for every month they work they bank one month of medical (max 6 months) well we will run out of coverage at the beginning of December if nothing changes. I'm so scared we can't afford my precriptions and my husband has already made to much money in the 6 months he worked to eliminate me from alot of help. I take Well butrin XL, Topamax, and Zocor, I also take Armour Thyroid but I can afford that any thoughts on what I can do or where to look. I don't know what to do and could really use some advice.

    try going to the drug companies web site and they should have something on there about it, or ask your doc.

    Hi aka, Hope your situation improves. I understand what it's like to worry about how you're going to pay for your prescriptions. Here is a list of participating programs through PPARX.

    I copied and pasted them for you from the website so you could print them but when you go to their website, look to the right of the page and you can click on the list. It says "View a list of participating programs".

    My heart was so touched by all those who did research to help you. What great people!

    Another thought is that you can talk to your doctor to either get samples through him/her and/or make sure you're taking the least expensive type of drug in each class. I have no idea about the others but Armour thyroid is cheap as you know.

    I am impressed as well, Thank You for caring and sharing that effort with all of us...and if if if those do not work your Dr. should write some inexpensive RX and have samples. The good news is you are ready and prepared, not caught off guard, do you take synthroid with your armour?
