... any type of assistance for the cost of his medication
As sweetlemon is alluding to, the drug manufacturer's do offer help to people who do not have insurance. Does your son have insurance? Is he working? As soon as you list the manufacturers of the drugs he is on, we can give you phone numbers or you can get them from the pharmacist when you ask the pharmacist for the manufacturers of the drugs.
Sometimes my doctor is willing to give me samples until I am able to work out something else. You may talk to the doctor to see if he has samples. Only a temporary fix but it might help.
Keep in touch,
If you can get the names of the medcines from the druggist he can also give you the names of the drug companies, usually these companies have assistance programs for people who are in need and need assistance, please try and find out from his druggist and then if I had that maybe we could find 800 numbers to the company too try and see what a person needs to do in order to recieve help I do care,
If your son is taking Abilify for his Disorder there is help. I take Abilify and couldn't afford it so I went on their website and they had a prescrition assistance program, so now I get 3 months free at a time. Let me look up their website and get back to you. I forget already how exactly I did it. But if it's not Abilify, you still may be able to qualify for assisstance.

Okay. I wanted to respond with the following, but I didn't want to cause a rukus.
Why WERE you paying for the meds of a son who is well into adulthood? Does he work? Is he on Soc. Security?
I am only asking you, because I am concerned that perhaps you have been stepping too far into the breach, and stabbing in the dark, I am guessing that perhaps he has not pursued all available avenues for help, beyond relying on you.
They are kinda skimpy, but there are resources for people who have mental health diagnosises.(sp?)
I have done this with prescription meds. Contact the manufacturer of the medicaiton, they will help you with the cost of the medication. Or he should do this since it is his medication.
Is your son dissabled because of his disorder? Is he your dependent? NOT asking these question is a offensive way. I and my daughter are dissabled for health issues and know the "ins and outs" this.
If he is unable to work because of his health issues he should apply for ss dissabiltiy. "Mental illness" as it is called is a health issue that is a dissability for a lot of people. And thus they receive ss dissibility.
Most people that apply for any illness will be turned down twice, then you get an Attorney that works to get people dissibility and he will get it in 98 % of the cases.
I have only known terminally ill people to be granted ss dissibility at the first application. My husband was approved in 3 weeks. He did not live (Lung Cancer, stage 5 when dx'd) to recieve his payment from ss.
