Linda gave you some good websites to check out. I think it is a good idea talk with your pharmacist to see if they may have some information about the companies that give assistance.
Does the physician you see give out samples? You might ask.

my answer is the same as capecodfish.. contact the company that makes your drugs and see.. that is what one couple in our church did when they needed assistance.. good luck.. also call all your social service like welfare, etc. and ask who you go to for help.. they may have something closer..

Didn't see any of the medications I take for COPD listed on that site.

Here's another link that might help.

If you have any containers of meds left, get the name of the pharmaceutical company and contact them directly. They will tell you what you have to do to get under one of their programs. Explain your problem and hopefully they can help. I wish you the best.
Please don't waste any time as it may take a little time to get through the paperwork.

I did a search and found this website that might help. Also, check with your doctor as they sometimes have samples they can set you up with until your situation improves. Good Luck!

I am witting this and asking for some help. I would like to know if any one knows of any places where I could get help with my meds for COPD OR BLOOD SUGAR? I am totally disabled and here in TN this say thing don't have any money left to pay for my Medicaid so as of the 13 of Aug I will no longer have any insurance. I have to be on disability for about 2 years before I can get medicare and I have about a year to go for that yet. So if any one know of places that will help I would really be gracefully for that information. Thank you, Peggy
