My co-pays for Exalgo ER are outrageously high. I keep having to increase my doseages each month too, which does not help, because the higher the dose, the higher the co-pay. My Pain Care Provider said that Malinckrodt may be able to help me pay my co-pays because they are the makers of this drug and she believes that they have a program for people who are on Social Security/Medicare and have trouble paying for their medications. Can anyone help me?
I am on Social Security/Medicare and am taking Exalgo ER. Can Malinckrodt help pay my co-pays?

........Thanks guys for your help. Malinckrodt does NOT help people who are covered by Medicare under ANY circumstances when it comes to covering Exalgo ER. I tried, begged, and pleaded. It was of no use. I am still in the process of looking for help. My dose has gone up pretty high, and I am now paying $172 per prescription!!!! That is just outrageous for someone who is disabled and on Medicare and has to live on $800 a month!!!! Thanks again for all your help and suggestions!!!!
The number for the pahramceutical company that makes this medication is 1 800 259 7765. Depending on your income, even if you have Part D Medicare drug coverage, they maybe able to help. Contact them for the application which you will have to complete along with the prescribing doctor including your financial info and see what happens. It definitely is worth the try.
