Anstar...talk to your doc and tell him your predicament. I don't know where you live or what your income is, but when my mom couldn't afford her meds anymore I went to the doctor with her and filled out some forms and she got some free and some at a reduced rate through the pharmacutical companies.
My doctor gives me free samples or I wouldn't be able to afford the drug he has me on. Maybe he can give you enough for a month or two then you wouldn't have to travel so far very often. Also inquire about generic substitutes. My husband decided he wasn't going to pay $165 a month for Lipator and stopped taking it. We don't have any insurance so I know how you feel. Unfortunatley, we don't qualify for any assistance.
What? Did someone say 'party?' I'm there!
