Well, this is my 2nd question i'm trying to help with. Dependng on the medication you have to take, there are several avenues. 1st, always get generic meds, 2nd, see if your Dr. can give you samples that the reps leave them. 3rd, sometimes the larger stores offer certain meds for only $5.00 for the entire prescription( it depends on the meds) and last, contact the drug company yourself and see if they can help you. i see commercials about asking the drug companies for help if you need it. I Hope this helps you. GrannyDonna
