Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello I believe I may be able to assist you today
I am so sorry that you are having this difficulty getting your medication S
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX anything you can do to help me receive my medication?
Since you have a prescription already, I am wondering if you have tried these drug assistance programs that provide prescription medications at low cost or for free
My bottle is out of refills...so how is that going to help?
Well because you already have a prescription from a medical doctor these programs help with individuals that do not have insurance and can provide you with the medication for free or at a very low cost of a few dollars a month at most.
it's just a discount card ... maybe I am not understanding but I can't order the medication from these sites..so i'm not sure how a discount is going to help since I have no refills,and can't afford to go to my dr to get a refill.
No you are right it is similar to a discount card. But because you cannot afford the medications, these sites can provide you with a doctor in their network that can provide you with a prescription, typically they will ask you to go to a free clinic, but you can show them your previous prescription to get the ball moving on getting your "discount card" for these medications
I don't need a discount card, I am an agent of incarerx so I have a discount card, I need a Dr. to provide me with my perscription asap.
This hotline can help you with finding a free mental health clinic in your area to get you a prescription ASAP
These clinics are designed to see you at very low cost or usually free for this exact situation
Well, that would work but i've already asked my doctor about a free or discounted clinic we may have here, unfortunately i'd have to travel 2 hours for one since I live in a very small city.
Not trying to be rude but i've been on this medication since I was 16 so I know the questions to ask and what not.
I am sorry that is very unfortunate. May I ask did you think that someone on this website would be allowed to write you a prescription for Xanax, so that you can get it filled?
No, obviously that can't happen. That would be illegal I believe.
unfortunately , ha.
You are right it is illegal, unfortunately. Other than a free clinic, there are not many options for you because you do not have insurance and I do not believe that you have the time to wait for applying for medicaid.
The healthcare system in this country is not good, and free healthcare clinics are dwindling, which is your safety net in this situation.
That I do not. Well, I must figure something out. I do not need a trip to the ER for withdraws
Exactly, a trip to the ER for withdrawal would be very expensive. Some psychiatrists work on a sliding scale and may be able to provide you with a discount to account for your lack of insurance and low income.
If you tell me what city you live in, I can try to find psychiatrists in your area that work on a sliding scale.
alright. Rock Hill
Well i actually found one psychiatrist in your area, you are right about it being a small town, but she says her average sessions are approximately 30-120 dollars, so she may be affordable to you
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX how much she will charge hopefully less than 100 :/
I know this is not in your state, but Charlotte is not that far from you. I am sure they must have free clinics over there to help you
I will check them out, traffic is terrible so that's the 2 hours I told you about :) use to live in Charlotte
Oh really, it says 30-40 minutes distance from you, but you are right that does not account for traffic. I was just thinking that is a bigger city and may have more options for you. I already looked at psychiatrists, but the best one I could find charges 250 dollars for an initial consult, so that is not an option
whoa. yeah not at all, well i've sent the lady and email so hopefully she can assist me at a lower cost and will contact the hotline to see what they can figure out for me.
Okay, well I wish you the best of luck, but I do encourage you to apply for medicaid as soon as possible to help you in the future.
Here is the website on how to apply
ok thank you very much.
