First off I'm sorry your MOM is suffereing from gas. This is not supposed to be funny. 2nd.Yes there is ..look in your home town where you live for a free health clinic. 3rd. Try previcid I take it but my insurance pay's for it, It would cost about the same amount as the other's on the market over the counter, it's like Nexium but better. Nexium cause's constipation and your mother doesnt need that. Start asking around if your not sure about a free clinic.

Hi to Gastritis,
I do not know what State you/your Mom live in but all states have a County Department of Social Services. If Mom is of low income (which they will tell you when you ask at this department) she will be entitled to a free medical insurance card which pays her prescriptions and medical doctors. In California, the state I live in, it is called Medi-Cal and in NJ I know it is called Medicaid. I worked with the Welfare Department of NJ when I lived there and in California I am familiar with the department as I worked with the County I live in. Please inquire about this as people who are low income are entitled to insurance in this country. Another important factor is to ask your doctor for free samples for Mom before she spends that kind of money for a prescription. She may not be able to take it and then it is a waste of money she doesn't have. So sorry.
