I listen to Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld on Sunday mornings. Today he said that if you have lost your job since January 1, 2009 and you take one of Pfizer's 70 medications and have been taking it for at least three months but now can't afford it, speak to your doctor. Pfizer is willing to give the medications free for up to one year, according to Dr. Rosenfeld. I thought I'd pass this along.

Here is the link all about it.

ps. I'm not sure if this is just for American citizens, or for Northern America, or globally. I think it's worth investigating, though!
