here are a few more resources for finding free/low-cost programs for meds assistance --
-- ask your prescribing dr or your family dr for samples;
-- ask a pharmacist if s/he knows of local/state/national programs for getting free/low-cost meds;
-- ask a pharmacist if any of the meds you are taking have generic equivalents, which are much less expensive than brand-name ones; many discount stores (target, wal-mart, etc.) dispense generic meds at $4/month;
-- look at the labels on your current meds, get the manufacturer's name for each, then apply to each manufacturer's patient assistance program;
