There are 3 ways listed here to find if there is assistance in obtaining your midications. For those of us who need meds but don't have insurance or money to pay for them, there is a low cost prescription program that carries many generic meds at very low cost, including psychiatric meds.
1) It is called Rx Outreach, also called Express Scripts. You can look up your med to see if it's available and if it is how much it will cost. Their web address is
2) Also, many of the drug companies have patient assistance programs where, as long as you meet their criteria for income and whether you have insurance or not, they provide their meds to patients at no cost.
You would look up the drug manufacturer of your med and do a web search for their home page. Almost always there is a link right on the front page that takes you to the info on their patient assistance program.
3) And the last one is another low cost web site that can help search for assistance programs that might be helpful for what you take. It is called Partnership for Prescription Assistance.
Welcome to our support group. You are not alone in your grief and confusion.
I agree she needs to be seen by a psychiatrist for care. Her behavior and feelings are out of control and very serious.
She also needs for you, her dad, to be in control again. Perhaps you can make another appointment with the psychiatrist, and then ask your most trusted friends and family to be with you when you talk with her about going to the appointment. Everyone can let her know they understand how she feels but that she needs to go to get help.
They can let her know they are going to help you make sure she goes for care. If she sees you all together, she may give up trying to be in control of everything and give in. She also might put up one heck of a fight but hopefully it will be a short one and she will calm down once she sees that you all mean it and she is going one way or another.
There must be some grief support groups and/or counselling available in your area. Maybe that would be a good place for you, and maybe for her too, to get some help in getting your lives back on track.
You have been going through such high stress for so long. And it's all very complicated.
I think if you moved or had her go stay with someone else, it would only make her feel more isolated and abandoned. It won't change her behavior at all and might even make her worse. She still won't be getting the kind of help she needs, and you will still feel out of control and at a loss.
I hope these ideas are helpful. Take care of yourselves.View Thread
