Good thought. I must admit I'm cynical about corporations and preferred to give it to someone I felt sure wouldn't just resell it. Guess I'll give Berlex a call to see what they say.
When so many said they couldn't legally accept it, I also decided against a local classified ad in case this is actually illegal! But I just know there are people out there struggling to pay to be on this med who could really use a 6 mos. supply.
Totally understand your thoughts on that but since most of the manufacturers have drug assistance programs they might approach it differently. That said, not going to be surprised if you're going to have to wind up throwing it out and yes, it is a shame.
I'm certain you did the right thing by not putting an ad in the paper though!
I DO believe it is illegal to even give away this medication to anyone; however it is an excellent idea to call the manufacturer. I wouldnt be surprised if they tell you that you have to destroy to it either, but its worth a try. Nice of you to think about it from a charitable point of view though. If you are getting this thru your insurance company, you might give them a call and see what they say. Legally though, Im pretty sure you cant "switch" it around amongst friends, support group members or even donate it. There were other posts on this a few weeks back, try searching on this board, someone might have found out the exact answer. I seem to remember this question coming up before, but cant for the life of me remember the answer given..
Good luck and its nice to know humanity still exists!
