My husband is disabled and on a fixed income.  I have him on my insurance, but we just found out that his Lyrica co-pay will triple next year.  He can barely afford the current co-pay so there is no way he can afford the new co-pay.  I checked into the prescription assistance program but they wont help if you have insurance.  Does anyone know of any assistance he can get to help with the new co-pay?

It's a horrible situation that unfortunately so many of us find ourselves in. Often, despite our best efforts and as victims of circumstance (economy, employment, etc.). Sometimes there are local church groups, religious or cultural organizations that can help. Larger hospitals or even city-located medical facilities can sometimes have programs to assist. Look into your State/Provincial medical assistance programs that you may be applicable for (I.e. Disability Tax Credit). There's also contacting Lyrica themselves to inquire about any programs. It often depends on where you live as to what's available so, check out all the avenues I've suggested and you may something helpful. Sorry, I couldn't be more specific. Good luck :-)

There's a website that offers free advice on coupons.
Here's it's statement.

Name of Offer: Lyrica® Co-Pay Savings Card
Description: Coupon You Can Only Get From Your Doctor
Your doctor can obtain a supply of these coupons by calling Pfizer at: 1-212-733-2323.

Details: Lyrica® Co-Pay Savings Card is a "Co-Pay reduction" coupon. Pfizer arranges it so that the maximum co-pay you have to pay for a Lyrica prescription is $25.00 per month for up to 12 months. The maximum co-pay reduction with this card is $70 per prescription.

The savings cards are part of a comprehensive program designed to increase the chances a person obtaining a successful outcome when using Lyrica®.

These coupons are widely distributed by Pfizer sales representatives. Your doctor must be willing to sit down with the representative for a few minutes in order to obtain these cards.

If your doctor does not have a supply of these coupons, he must contact his Pfizer representative. If he does not know who his Pfizer representative is he should call Pfizer at 1-212-733-2323. Pfizer will dispatch a pharmaceutical representative to meet with your doctor, drop off the coupons and explain how the program works.


I hope this helps.
