Hi shelkesink, I'm really sorry to hear about your troubles! You've been through so much. It's hard covering the price of scripts these days, especially pricey ones like OxyContin. You can try contacting Perdue Pharmaceuticals and see if they have a patient assistance program. Many pharma companies have them. Some will give you meds for free if you qualify. You can also try www.needymeds.com. I also provided a link for prescription assistance. I hope it works! You could also check around at different pharmacies for the best prices. Many will offer in store discounts and up to 50% off the price of meds for transferring scripts over to them. There's also less costly meds you might want to try. I know MS Contin is about half the price of what you're prescribed. Personally, I would start with contacting the pharma company directly. I'm almost positive Perdue has this program in place. Good luck to you and hope you have a wonderful new year!
