Disabilities board


I know about having to make those choices, and it's so hard. I had to change to meds that didn't work as well, but came in generic, so I could afford something. Most of the generics worked ok, but some were too expensive, and the place I got them didn't carry the expensive ones.....

There's a generic assistance place in FL that helps with generic meds- 20 dollars for 3 months worth (no matter how many pills)...I had my doc order all generic stuff when I was waiting for my SSD, and eventually Medicare (after 2 years on SSD). Do you have a church that has any sort of charity outreach that could help you with the medication payments (maybe write the check if they need to have records it went for meds) , or a community clinic that could help? I know how hard it is to ask for help when you've worked and taken care of things all your life, but stuff happens- and help is there for those who need it....

It's hard enough to go through all of this, let alone without meds that you need. I don't have bipolar disorder, but have seizures, dysautonomia, diabetes, headaches, arthritis, chronic pain/fibromyalgia, a recent knee replacement, blood clots in my lungs in April, so Coumadin for life, etc...so know the horrors of tons of meds and the costs of them- and no money. I know this board is strict about listing specific places/businesses....so I'm not sure how to tell you what the name of this place is. It was a major lifesaver for me- you can also get 6 months worth of meds for 40 dollars (if doc writes for that amount), a few meds are 30 or 60 dollars, but the savings is still huge, and you don't have to use foriegn pharmacies (have used them for some things and it's been ok, but other things have been iffy). You might search for 'generic pharmaceutical assistance in FL' and see if something comes up. They don't make a profit- you just pay for the pharmacist's time; shipping is one small fee for any size order. And, you don't have to worry about getting meds for another 3 or 6 months.

Maybe even selling that gun would get you the money for meds :) If it's a vintage gun, you may have more there than you know :)
