I am already taking Wellbutrin and Paxil which is already hard for me to purchase. My doctor wants me to take Abilify which is about $140 month. I need ideas, referrals for a more economical way to get the meds. The medicaid I get has a very, very high share of cost ($1,400/mo.) But being on the medicaid disqualifies me for the pharmicutical company assistance plans. Is this correct? What else is out there?

Is mail order the same as a pharmaceutical plan? because mail order can be much more economical. The only way to find out if you can have both is to ask them.

thanks for replying. However, my medicaid will not pay for anything untill I've met my monthly share of costs. I don't know of any mailorder that takes my medicaid (remember, this is medicaid, not Medicare)

I buy my drugs from Canada.
Bigmountaindrugs.com is very reasonable.
