In England we have a card where you pay £100 ($200) and with that you get as many prescriptions as needed for a year.

Some meds such as epilepsy meds or diabetes meds are given free and not paid for.

Otherwise a prescription is nearly £7 ($14) a time now.

I'm lucky, being unepmloyed, i don't pay for them

Re: I can't afford my meds. Quick question

I've actually never heard of free drug card, so I can't say whether or not it is legitimate. You are right in that doctors WANT you to have to pay for expensive prescription drugs (maybe not ALL doctors, but many). Doctors get monetary "kick backs" if they get a certain number of patients to take a popular prescription drug. These nice little "kick backs" come from the pharmaceutical companies themselves. One GOOD thing about the pharmaceutical industry is that MOST offer special programs for people who can't afford their prescriptions. You can call or write the drug company of the particular drug you take, and inquire about the program. I was on two seperate programs, and BOTH of my prescriptions turned out to be FREE. But, I had to qualify and show proof that I couldn't afford my meds. Good luck.

Vestibular problems, CFS, adrenal issues.
