    Doug,

     

    Most of the pharmaceutical companies have patient assistance programs to provide free medications to patients with no insurance who meet their income guidelines. Those guidelines are pretty generous. Try going to www.pparx.org to check on all of your medications. You list all of them on the site, and it will tell you which ones have programs you qualify for. It will then even take you through the process to fill out the application forms and print them. You then take them to your doctor for his or her signature and send them in.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Teri

    Hey Doug

     

    I am sorry you lost your health insurance.  I want to research your question more thoroughly but I can tell you about one low cost antidepressant. 

     

    We buy a generic form of Prozac for my son at Wallmart for only four bucks a prescription.

     

    Here is a news article about it.

     

    I know this is not the same as Welbutrin but it may help...I don't know.

     

    Thank you for asking your question and I hope other folk chime in with their experience.

    The programs offered by the drug companies are usually only for brand name medications. The local pharmacies often have the generic medications on their low-cost formulary (such as Wal-Mart's $4 plan). Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens (and possibly others) all have low-cost plans where you can get a 30-day or 90-day supply of certain medications for a set price, usually $4-5 for a 30-day supply and $10-12 for a 90-day supply. Check with the local pharmacies to see what they offer, and then speak with your doctor about which of those medications could be beneficial for you.

     

    I hope this helps- 

    Casey
