I recently lost my job (and insurance). I have been taking Janumet 50/500 for about a year now and have had very good success keeping my glucose level in check. Prior to this I took Januvia without good control. I exercise relatively intensely on a regular schedule and follow a pretty steady diet as well. Now that I have no insurance and no significant income the cost of the Jnaumet is very expensive for me. I am pretty worried that my diabetes will spiral out of control. Are the any programs out there by the Mercx or anybody else to offset a portion of the cost for low income people. Unfortunately medicaid and other government assistance programs do not exist for me since I am a male.

Yes, Merck has a program for you. Go to this web page and I am sure that they can do something as they say no one should go without their drugs.
Hope this Helps
