My health insurance for my new job just kicked in the first of this month so I filled a Lexapro prescription and it's only going to cost me $20 a month! Which is a huge improvement from the $70 a month on my last insurance. Oddly though I have to pay $50 for my birth control but I suppose it's worth it. I assume babies cost way more than $50 a month to take care of.. tongue

Either way I'm excited and can't wait till I get paid so I can pick it up and get rid of these brain zaps and blues once and for all! Just thought I would share  yeah

getting by

It must feel so good to be able to be relieved that you can get your medications. I am so happy for you. I am fortunate, I get a small pension and blue cross from my late husband. The pension isnot much but the insurance makes up for it. I don't know where I would be without it.

Good luck to you,
hugs, Karen...

Congratulations...............I know how important insurance is. My bill for the skin cancer surgeries in June came to over $10,000.00.  Unreal.

I am very happy  for you.

Congratualtions. It must be a huge weight lifted, knowing that you are paying less for your meds.

I am lucky to be epileptic in a warped way. Our NHS will give you free prescriptions for life-long meds but only if you have specific disorders. Epilepsy is one of them so I have an exemption certificate. But there are NO mental health disorders listed at all. Depression, Bi-Polar Disorder, Schizophrenia etc... none of them are listed so you have to pay.

Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
