More medication woes
So. It turns out that the receptionist was mistaken, there is no generic for Effexor XR. We tried asking the pharmacy to just fill a few days, but they refused to give me anything but one 75 mg pill. That isn't even half of what I need for a day's dose. There is no point in my seeing my psychiatrist cos I can't afford the office visit, and I can't have him just suddenly prescribe a different antidepressant, as I still need more time to taper off this one. I am already feeling extremely sick and unstable. I emailed Wyeth to see when I might find out if I was approved for the patient assistance thing. My pharmacy said that the prescription I gave them will be $365. With their discount card. I am going to plead with my dad tomorrow for the money, but I don't know if that will do any good. I already am freaking out and acting unlike myself, and it's only been a day. I know I can't go much longer without my pills. What are my options? Where would I even find a mental health facility or clinic or whatever? I'm afraid they'd just hand me a prescription, which isn't the problem. I have a prescription already. I just don't have the cash to fill it. Thanks..
