After certain pharmacutical comercials I hear them mention and I'm sure I'm spelling this wrong & I'm not sure if they are the company who makes Duragesic,but I think it's called Astrazenica,they claim they can help you with presription cost. Or you could get see how much regular fentanyl patches are because I know Duragesic is the brand,& much more expensive. I would try one or both good luck. J.

The Website is Duragesic.com. I've heard of some people getting their patches for free.. But I've never actually had friends that have gotten them for free so it may be a myth. They will most likely help you out though. Hope this helps. Happy Holidays and good luck!

You can also try your Social Services where you live. I was going to have to do it, but got my insurance back just before my appt. Isn't it sad that pain meds cost so damned much? It really sucks for those of us who have no ability to work and pay for them. I just turned 32 years old, and my 4 rx's that I currently use are around $1200/mo! What's fair about that? I shouldn't need that much medication, but there is no age limit on pain! Hope this helps a little. I would call DSS and ask them about gov. funded script programs...
