I'm on a low income and need to take risperidone. I hear voices and they really really affect my ability to function as I use to in a normal daily life. I work with other people plus the public. I'm a Front office Adminisitrator. I work with the computer, and the public and work associates. I'm hearing voices inside my head and I also think other people are saying too. I've been told this is all in my head by my dr.. The doc has perscribe risperidone to me along with anxiety Clonazepam (which I can afford) the Clonazepam). So far he has upped the mg. dosage to 4mg on the risperidone. The pharmacy is way out of my budget. If I can't afford to take this drug I will loose my mind and I will drive my family crazy thinking they said something they did not. Or even my colleagues at work or the patients we see. I have to work for a living and don't want to loose my job over this either. If you have a plan for people in my postion, would you please take me into consideration. Thank you Footsie
Do you have people you can't afford the perscription for risperidone?
Added 12 Apr 2011:
My question was suppose to read " Who can't afford risperidone"...and if you have a program for these people. In my mind that is what I wrote but it came out the other way. Soo sorry..Footsie1 ( forgot to change my name to Footsie1 too). See how upset I am??? Now I'm starting to cry cause you may not consider me cause of my typo..
