Suddenly off Viibryd and health insurance. What can I do?
I was on Medicaid which covered Viibryd. I've been taking 40 mg for 4 years. Now I'm in that great spot where I make just a tad too much money for Medicaid but can't afford Viibryd out of pocket (almost $300 for 30 pills). Today is day 1 with no Viibryd and I took 1200 mg of St. John's Wort .3% hoping that would make it easier. I was pretty tired and easily distracted today. Should I take more SJW tomorrow? Any other tips for preventing Viibryd withdraw?

Can I get a sample of Eucrisa before I pay $580?
My three-year-old has extremely severe eczema and the doctor prescribe this stuff to her. Medicaid does not cover any of the cost and I do not have $500 to purchase it and before I try to borrow the money from someone, I would like to know if it's going to burn her skin to the point where I cannot put it on her. Absolutely everything I have tried so far on her burns her bc her eczema is so bad. It is truly heartbreaking to watch my three-year-old cry whenever she gets in the bath, put...

Does any one know who will pay for my Seroquel?
Can’t buy my medicines need help paying for them. No insurance or Medicaid nor Medicare and money to buy that or my Depokote. I really need my medicines. The only income I have is SNAP benefits of $194 a month. I have both scripts sitting at CVS and can buy them.

Reclast - Why is my jaw losing bone and causing my teeth to fall out?
I was given reclast for 4-5 years until 2012. Since then, I've lost one molar. I was told my jaw was losing bone. I lost a tooth 3 years ago and now my other teeth are being affected. I am on Medicaid and feeling like a lab experiment. Medicaid will only offer tooth pulling, which is covered. Why does a person in my fixed income situation, have zero recourse for this damage? I never lost a tooth before I was given this drug. By the way, a fifteen minute injection is a joke because they...

Can't get Contrave because I have medicaid!?
I've tried twice to get Contrave but have been denied using the discount card because I have medicaid. I don't understand why they won't help people who have this type of insurance. My insurance will not cover it, I'm paying cash but they still turn me down for it. Does anyone know if taking the bupropion and naltrexone separately would be the same as taking contrave? Does anyone have any experience with that or any help they could offer? I'm so discouraged after being...

Why does my arm still hurt after I two months of having the nexplanon put in?
If I bend my arm then it sends a sharp pain through my arm like I am being stabbed because the implant is pushing on the scar from the needle when they put it in. I don't Medicaid or Medicare because my mom kicked me out of the house and I have no job and I'm homeless so I can't go to a clinic and ask. Is there any way I could accidentally get pregnant.

Having difficulty finding psychiatrist?
Im disabled due to panic attacks and have a crappy psychiatrist. Also on Medicaid and neither I or my family pcp can find one in my area that does not have a waiting list of several months.
