Also do not be afraid to check the Salvation Army and local sources. Some churches and other organizations will often help with meds. Also some communities have special programs to get you prescription coverage. Never feel there is no hope unless you lack insurance and have a very high income. Even then there is usually help available. For those who don't know yet, humira and enbrel have programs to help pay for their injections. Also many drug companies have programs too! So if you take a lot of meds find out who makes them and see what programs they have- always look at brand name company though as generic companies usually do not have programs as generic is supposedly cheap.
