- depression, viibryd
Three weeks ago my 28 yr. old son was given sample packets of viibryd by his psychiatrist; he had just lost his job and could not afford to buy the Rx.
He was suicidal and desperate to feel better so he could find another job and deal with other financial issues - like holding on to his car - that come with the loss of a job.
This medicine was like "magic" and within three days he had two new jobs and was feeling "better than normal." I was so relieved and grateful.
I called the drug company and asked if they would send him an application for help paying for the Rx until his insurance kicks in. The woman I spoke to was brusk and downright mean, but said she'd send the info.
I'm worried sick because the info. hasn't come yet and my son is quickly running out of the samples. I searched this site for a "contact us" place for the makers of Viibryd but cannot find one.
Does anyone have an idea on how I could reach them or, even better, speed up this process? Thank you SO MUCH for being here.
Hello alana21. You might contact the manufacturer Shire Pharmaceuticals Inc. At 1-888-227-3755 Regards pledge
Call you local pharmacist and tell them what you need. They know where everything comes from and may have a better solution for you.
I don't know how expensive this drug is, but sometimes you just pay the price. Don't let cash deter you. He won't be able to hold down his jobs without the medication.
Also he can call his doctor and explain the situation. There may be other solutions that way as well. Keep,searching.
The contact info is:
Forest Laboratories, Inc.
909 Third Avenue
New York, NY 10022
I hope that helps.
You can get a copy of the application for patient assistance by going to Rxassist.org. Choose the patient portal, type in the name of the drug and it will give you the options. Click on the drug name and on the left-hand margin will be the link to the application. Good luck!! If you need further assistance with this process, don't hesitate to ask.
You can also try partnership for prescription assistance. They also have an online app, or freedrugs.com.
Yes, the infor is on the net. Contact and allow what to update us as to the best.
There are a few (free!) prescription assistance programs you can find online. The meds aren't free, but you can get substantial discounts. You print your card right online and they are accepted at almost all major chains and lots of local pharmacies. Hey, it's worth a try, you might find the cost more manageable. Two I use are countyrxcard.com and rxreliefcard.com. Best wishes to you and your son.
Also ask his psychiatrist for more samples
This Medication has absolutly destroyed my life.
I have CONSTANT AND EXTREME pain from this drug. Worst Medication I have ever taken. Thing is. ..I thought it was a life saver in the beginning due to the Medication being helpful for my PTSD . But, it hat caused such intense joint pain in EVERY SINGLE JOINT IN MY BODY... that I have not been able to return to work.
If you start to notice joint pain after taking it. ..talk to your Doctor immediatly. Google Viibryd and joint pain. This pain is more intense than when I gave Natural Childbirth. It also does not stop for many even after stopping the Medication. I am in the process of weaning from it.
Please. ..be careful.
