Dear Anon,

Have you considered visiting your Public Health Care clinic? They will sometimes help you pay for the medications based on a sliding scale.
Another option is to contact different pharmacies such as Walmart, for example, where they have certain medications for around $4.

Have you applied for government assistance, since you say you cannot afford your medications you may qualify.

Please keep us posted,

yes i did apply. but my case is been on hold because case worker no longer works there and whom ever took the case has a load. waiting period for three weeks dont think i can hold that long. so i have decided to buy a inhailer to easy some pain until i can find someone insurance.

I'm so sorry-- I know they sometimes have so much work load that it can take a while but you must be persistent with your application in order for it to get approved as fast as possible. Call, fax, and even go personally to their office if there is one near you.

Hope this gets resolved soon,
