Prozac is now generic, but still very expensive, so I would apply for Eli Lilly's progrzm:
ELI LILLY AND COMPANY
Name of Program : Lilly Cares
Physician Requests Should Be Directed To Lilly Cares Program Administrator
P.O. Box 23099
Centreville, VA 20120
1 -(800) 545-6962
Product(s) Covered By Program
Most Lilly prescription products and insulins (except controlled substances) are covered by this program. Gemzar® is covered under a separate program
Patients must be U.S. residents. Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis in consultation with each prescribing physician. Eligibility is based on the patient's inability to pay and lack of third- party drug payment assistance, including
insurance, Medicaid, government-subsidized clinics, and other government, community, or private programs. Inpatients and those who can obtain drug reimbursement from any source are not eligible. Requests for replacement drugs cannot be
honored; Medications are provided directly to the physician for dispensing to the patient. Quantity of supply is dependent upon type of product being prescribed. All Lilly medications must be used as recommended in product labeling.
Other Program Information
Forms to qualify a patient for the program will be provided to the physician. On this form, the physician is requested to provide prescription information, including signature and DEA number, and to confirm the patient's ineligibility for otherforms of outpatient drug coverage. Additionally, the patient is requested to provide pertinent information and state financial need.
Subsequent request for same patient requires another prescription and restatement of medical and financial need.
Program guidelines may be subject to change.
Cass, I'm on my way out now, but I'll try to find the same information about neurotin in a couple of hours.
