Tips for Prescription Savings

Monday, March 9th, 2015

 
The  high price of a single prescription medication may have resulted in the death of a young Michigan mother recently.  News reports stated that the mother of two small children was living on a limited single parent  income and  failed to renew a life saving prescription because it was too expensive.  That  apparently has cost her her life.
This real crisis in medical care continues to worsen. Patients who are living on the financial edge  are doing without life sustaining medicines for financial reasons. The extreme costs associated with some prescription medicines is being cited by health care professionals as a primary cause for worsening health statistics in the USA. Patients increasingly say they neglect to take much needed medicines because of the  cost. As a result, these patients are showing up in emergency rooms again and again and many are simply shortening their life. This “repeat traffic” is increasing the  burden already being placed on hospital emergency rooms, which also means longer waits for medical attention and much higher costs for all of us. Some, like the Michigan mother, are  being forced into an early grave by their Rx expenses. RX drug costs for some senior citizens,even those with Medicare Part D, exceeds the amount of their monthly Social Security check.
Unfortunately there is no end in sight for the problem of rising Rx drug costs. Meanwhile, here are a few  Rx drug tips which may mitigate your costs and save your life.  Try these 9 suggestions for reducing your prescription costs; together they can save you a lot of money and possibly your life :

1) Get a free prescription savings card – Print one of our Rx Drug cards at www.RxDrug.tv and present it to your pharmacist with your next prescription. Our card will save you money on most medicines, especially generics, but also on most brand named drugs as well. Ask your druggist to keep your Rx drug card on file for your future prescription savings.
2) Ask your doctor or druggist to substitute a generic for the brand name medicine. By federal law,  generic medicines must contain  the same active ingredients in the same amounts as the brand name does – you just pay more noney for the brand name.
3) Ask your doctor for a higher dosage pill that can be split with an inexpensive pill splitter, which can be purchased at every pharmacy. Often the higher dosage pills that are splittable cost far less per dosage.

4.) Ask your Doctor for a 90 day  prescription if you will be taking the Rx on a continuing basis – then order 90 days worth through a discount mail order pharmacy (see #6 below). Prices are often much cheaper than 30 day prescriptions.
5) Ask your doctor for prescription drug samples. Manufacturers often give them promotional samples in bulk.
6) Use mail order pharmacies. * Caution – verify that the distributor is a  licensed pharmacy. Foreign based websites or websites that solicit your business through e-mails are often a red flag. These sites are sometimes not regulated and the medicines they sell may not be either. Just ask them for their pharmacy license number and verify it.
7) Medications should be stored properly and take them as directed to maximize their effectiveness.
8) Be sure you both your doctor and druggist that the cost of your medications is a real concern to you. They may help you find a lower- cost generic or lower-cost alternative medicine. If they know that cost is a factor in your decision  they will be willing to help you to insure you take your Rx as directed. Presenting one of our rxdrug.tv drug savings cards will let your druggist know  that you are shopping prices.
9) Take all prescribed medicines regardless of the cost. The result of failure to take them could cost you more, even your life.

 

Anxiety – What You Should Know About Panic Attacks

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

The first thing you should know about anxiety attacks, also known as panic attacks, is that they usually last only a very short while, often less than 30 minutes, and they are very treatable through medication and/or therapy. Just realizing that these attacks are treatable and that they will usually pass quickly should help you deal with the immediate feelings of fear that usually accompany the sudden crisis. You may actually feel like you are losing control off your mind, but, this feeling will pass. The 1st  time someone experiences an anxiety or panic attack is usually terrifying. The percentage of adults who will experience  a panic attack at some time in their lives is near 20%. Don’t be surprised if you have an attack at some point in your life. For most the attacks appear without warning and for no obvious reason. Some people will have a recurring problem while others may only experience one in a lifetime. Panic attacks sometime become associated in the mind of the victim with whatever was happening at the time an attack was experienced, such as driving over a bridge, flying in an airplane or riding an elevator.

Factors that can set off  an anxiety attack. These can include :

A major life transition - such as moving from one stage of life to another, which might include graduating from school to the working world, from being single to getting hitched, becoming a parent for the first time, etc.

Stress, such as death of a loved one, losing your job, divorce or a fearful life experience like flying for the 1st time.  .

Medical conditions and medications, including illnesses, physical injuries and surgeries.

Symptoms of panic attack.
Panic attack symptoms are generally grouped into two main categories; Emotional and Physical symptoms.

Emotional Symptoms of anxiety attacks include  difficulty concentrating, jumpy and tense feeling, apprehensive feeling, fearing the worst (excessive fear), being restless, being frequently irritated, being in constant watch of danger or signs of danger, having a feeling that your mind has gone blank or that you are losing your mind.

Physical Symptoms of panic attacks : sweating, diarrhea or increased frequency of urination, pounding or accelerated heart beat, dizziness, upset stomach , trouble sleeping, headache, fatigue or felling of tiredness, shortness of breath, feeling like you have to get away from your current location and often an overwhelming feeling of apprehension, impending doom or fear without an obvious cause.

Treatments and Medication
Anxiety attacks, as I mentioned above, is very treatable and usually each attack only lasts a short while before subsiding. Just knowing this will help get you through the immediate feelings of impending doom or fear. If you think you have had an anxiety attack, you should consult your doctor before you have a recurrence. Panic attacks can be difficult to manage without medical attention and may get worse without medical attention. There are many effective treatments available for anxiety attacks, including psychotherapy and medications.

Psychotherapy
Also known as behavioral therapy, psychotherapy is often a preferred treatment for anxiety attacks. Psychotherapy sessions usually help the victim understand the attack and how to cope with it. In addition, therapy may help you gradually overcome the feeling of panic or fear thus reducing or eventually eliminating the occurrence of these attacks altogether.

Medications
There are several medications that your doctor may prescribe to reduce the symptoms associated with panic attacks.

They include:

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI’s) , Benzodiazepines (Central Nervous System Depressants) and
Serotonin & Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRI’s).

If you need help paying for your anxiety medications :

If you have prescription insurance most anxiety medications will be covered. However, if you have no prescription insurance you should benefit using our free and pre-activated RxDrug savings card. Our free prescription savings card can be printed at our homepage. This Rxdrug.tv prescription savings card is offered as a free public service with the cooperation of over 60,000 pharmacies. Simply put your name in the Card Creator box and click - print the pre-activated card that appears  (if you do not have a printer, simply copy the codes which appear on the card) and bring your card to your pharmacist with your prescription. Almost all local and chain pharmacies will accept our drug card. Ask your pharmacist to keep your Rxdrug card in your prescription file so you will not have to have it with you every time you get a prescription filled – it never expires. Also, please let your friends know about your savings using our Rxdrug.tv prescription card by using the convenient e-mail-to-a-friend tab found on our homepage.
