Patient Resources

Welcome back friends! I planned on sharing something really personal today, but my heart just wasn’t in it. I don’t want to declare today a BAD day… But it’s just not the best.

Instead I decided to share something much more resourceful especially for the spoonie community! How many times have you been without your medication due to cost? How many times have you needed a price on a medication before you actually go to the pharmacy? How many times have you wished there was an assistance program ready and willing to help? If you answered at least one of these questions with “often” – I hope this post helps you!
Here is a list of patient resources. Things like assistance programs, price estimates and discount cards all in one place.

    Admittedly this post doesn’t really relate to me but I still love reading your blog. I’m glad you decided not to post your personal post because your heart wasn’t in it. I’ve literally just read another post which was similar and I commented to say the same thing. You’ve just got to enjoy blogging, remember its supposed to be something we enjoy not something that feels like work or a “chore” so you’ve done the right thing! xxx

    Please check out http://www.healthwarehouse
    .com. It is the mail order division of GoodRx who has an Rx discount card and website showing local prices. Health Warehouse medications are US made and Cymbalta was much cheaper than Canada suppliers or India. Shipping has been 3 days or less to FL and TN. Mine shipped from KY. I paid $230 at CVS, $180 from Canada and $49!!!! from Health Warehouse.
