Need Help With Medication?

First I want to say sorry for not being around Monday and Tuesday. I came down w/ a nasty stomach virus and was certain I was dying! I have never in my life shit and puked at the same time until Monday morning at around 5 am. So there ya have it, the ugly truth of why I was gone.

Ok so in a response to my Sunday post about Bipolar someone asked how a person could get help w/ medicine that they can't afford and don't have insurance for. So me, being the person that I am went right to work because I know exactly how needed medicines can be, as well as how expensive they can be.

If you need help w/ any medication, and are not covered by an insurance that can help there are a few things I know you can do. 1. ask your Dr, see if they may have samples they can give you of that medication. 2. Needy Meds is a website w/ all medication and their numbers to contact if you need help w/ that medicine. It also lays out the guidelines for qualifying for that medication through the company. 3. PPA  is a program that Montel Williams has always talked about to help people w/ their medication. If you need a medicine but can't afford it, please don't hesitate to go look at these sites, apply and get the meds you need!

I hope this information was helpful. If you have any more questions, need any more help you can contact me at


  1. Good post, Melissa. It should be very helpful. I'm not in that spot yet, but it's nice to know that there may be help available.

  2. Thank you for these leads. I'm checking them out for my mom.

  3. Hope you are feeling better. I hear there is crap going around again. At least we all made it through the holidays healthy!

  4. So sorry to hear about the stomach thing. YUCK. I hate that the worst of any sickness. Icky. hOpe you are better now. I have been MIA as well. Knee deep in painting rooms. I hate painting.

  5. Thank you so much for posting this. I will forward the message along. I think of my friends biggest problems is affording the doctor too. But I will talk to them. They're going through a not-answering-the-phone phase that I hate so much. :(
