What Do You Do If You Can't Afford Your Medication?

Prescription Assistance
These days, many people are finding themselves unable to afford their prescriptions. What do you do if you can't afford your medication?

We found a few free prescription assistance programs and resources available to help:

Together Rx Access
RxAssist

NeedyMeds
Partnership for Prescription Assistance

Many drug companies also have assistance programs for patients using their medicines. Find out what company makes your prescription medication and visit their website to see if they offer help. A few of the major drug makers are below:

GlaxoSmithKline
AstraZeneca
Merck
Pfizer
Abbott

Talk to your doctor for more resources that may be able to help. If you can't afford to see a doctor, you should try a free clinic or federally qualified health center (FQHC) in your area. They provide free or low-cost care to those who qualify, and are often able to assist with medication.

If you know of any other prescription assistance programs, please share them by commenting below.
