Cost of meds

I have been on Dilantin for 41 years. I currently take 400mgs. daily. I have strange thoughts, some that really strange.
I asked my doctor to change my meds. But after checking with the drug stores, I can't afford to change, I don't have any insurance. I just recently found a prescription card for Dilantin only. I was paying $75/mth. With the card I pay $24/mth.
Anyone have any suggestions?

You can also contact the drug companies directly. Most will have patient assistant programs and paper work on their websites.

Talk with your doctor.  most drug companies will offer discount cards based on your income.  Also check out the partnership for prescription assistance website.  They have many resources.  It typically is a form for you and your doctor to fill out.
