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.

Do you have a patient assistance program for zofran?
A friend of mine has Ellos Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and has a prescription for 3 Zofran/day so that she can eat, she is down to 85-90 lbs now. She is on Medicaid and they decided she only needed 8 pills/month because she is neither pregnant nor has cancer. She needs help or we will watch her slowly starve to death. Can you please help?
