He had stint put in but needs med to contine to thin as arteries have difficulties
The first thing I do if my Dr orders a brand new med is ask if there isn't another med in the class of meds that is cheaper that I could take. If not, I ask for samples. If there is no help there, go to the partnership for prescription assistance website and apply for help. Its income based, and it will point you in the direction of help. He could also apply to the manufacturer to get it cheaper. In this case, Eli Lily Co. Has he checked around at all the pharmacies near him for the cheapest price? I know with a brand name you probably aren't going to find much difference, its a pretty expensive drug. Oh, the other thing to check is Costco pharmacy, their prices are usually the best, and you don't have to be a member to use the pharmacy.
