I am in need for serequel and cannot afford to pay such a cost.
OH PLEASE if you do get an answer share it with me! I am 40 yrs old diagnosed w/Bipolar disorder am on 800mg Seroquel, on medicare and in the "donuthole" as they called it. right now I am getting by on samples from my Psychiatrist and my neurologist. Even when I get out of this donut hole medicare will only pay up to certain amount of scripts per year hense the "donut hole" I would only get maybe 4 months then be screwed again. As it stands it's 800.00 a month for my script. I've tried astra zenica patient asst, also they have a program for situations like mine but I have been denied everything I have applied for. I am on Social Security Disability due to my M.S. but they stll say I make too much money. But maybe in your situation if you go to astra zeneca's website you may be able to qualify or you can call them wouldn't you know I can't find the phone # but it is on the website. If I come across it I will get it to you unless you are like me and have exhausted all the resourses... Hang in there~Amy
I don't know if this is of any help, but I found these sites, and they might be worth checking out...
I don't know much about any of these sites, how they function, but as I already mentioned, might be worth checking out...
I haven't veen on seroquel for some time now, but when I was I was without any income. The Dr I was seeing had some form of agreement with their manufature and got me on the patient assistance program for Seroquel. When I did not receivi from them, the Dr always had samples to see me through. Tell your perscribing Dr. you need help staying on this med and I'm sure he can help you find a way to get it.
I take Lamictal and do not have health insurance and have been unemployed for almost 2 years... so MONEY is a BIG ISSUE!! I remembered that Montel Williams commercial awhile back about what to do if you can't afford your medication... I forget what he was representing (I am sure you could probably Google him and find out)... anyway, I remembered that I had heard that most drug companies have drug plans for those who cannot afford their medications. I went online to GlaxoKlineSmith and they had 2 programs. I signed up for one and have been getting my meds for free. I think you can for one year and then have to prove that you are financially unable to afford it again (submit tax return). I think one of the 2 programs they had was for a program that applied to other companies... could be wrong... but check it out. I would definitely go to the manufacturing company website first, they are bound to have a program. If that doesn't work out, perhaps the Walmart generic drug program (1 month for $4.00/ 3 months for $12.00) might be an option.
Seroquel Company will send your Medicine to your Doctors Office, If you Call Seroquel Company. The Pharmacy can give you the number or Manufacture Name, so you can call them. An Operator is on line to serve you for your medicine. You will then get a form in the mail to see if you make so much a year, it is free to you, this is then signed by your Doctor and fax back to the Company.
I have been on Seroquel for sometime now and lost my health coverage when I got married. In my area I go through a place called Crisp. This place works with the drug company to get you your medication for free. And if your doctor signs off on it they will send it right to your door. I used to get samples from my doctor but then I realized they where giving me Seroquel XR and I am not on that kind. Ask your doctor about it, better yet ask the nurse about getting help from the drug company. And you should have no issues. I know this drug is so expensive. And it is expensive because there is no generic for it. I take it for sleep and for my mood stablizer. I take 100mg. Which is lower then SOME people who have commented. If you need help getting this done or need help with the questions to ask your doctor's office let me know. And search in your area for Crisp. (Crisp is how they say it but its not spelled that way.
) you can call a DHS worker or office or search for one in your area. They are kind of the go between between you and the drug company. I would love to cut out the middle man however, Crisp always has my month supply ready every month. And I know you know how much this drug costs.
Please let me know if you need any other help!
Try www.4rx.com. Their generic medicine does not require a prescription apparently. The quality seems identical to AstraZeneca's. If generic from another country bothers you, check the manufacturer that they use. One manufacturer that they use for generic Seroquel is Cipla. One example of the cost comparison is just under $40 for a month's worth of generic Seroquel at 300 mg. If you take extended release, you can take the medicine multiple times per day to keep a more consistent level in your blood stream. Of course, check with your doctor. If you are looking at paying much more than this (especially $800 per month!), you should figure out a way to order this from the above mentioned website. Also, you can order it in larger quantities and save more. Hope that helps!
