medicine ? and insurance??

first I am in Limbo and going to my general doc tomorrow need something for pain and to stay awake. someone I think Deb said Provigil to stay awake, looking at the possible side effects I am worried about anxiety as I already have that so if you know about this medicine by the am or others please reply. he is not the brightess of Doc's so I need to go in informed!

Also on another post you all recommend getting insurance first, okay how do I do that? honestly I heard it is hard to get and I think I am going to need it really quick. All I have now is SS if I need it and that is not much.

I don't need credit card insurance but I am in school as I can no longer work at my old profession so I am going to have tons of student loans and I really want to work but I know this is important so any advice would be great.
Thanks again all you are all so great,

HI there!

I do not know about side effect for providual
but, you can do a quick search on yahoo.com
or google,  on  Providual and or providual side effects,
if your question does not get answere here in time.

You said you are on SS  (soc security?)
If So do you have Part A and Part B medicare?

If you do you can pick up a supplemental soc sec
medicare plan. It will cost an extra premium per month.
but by far, outweighs the cost of any type of major medical

You can call the soc sec 800 # number and get info. and
also you may message me, Id be happy to try and help
sort this out with you.
medical Insurance , is the one thing, if it is possible- to have in order
perferably, before getting any kind of major Dx.
meantime tho do not stop any care you recieve.
