Help with medication

There are many people who have to deal with the high cost of prescription medicine.

In the past few years, pharmaceutical companies have offered assistance to those who are not able to afford the cost of their medications.

However, Eli Lilly and Co. has chosen a different response to those who take the medication Strattera, which is for attention deficit disorder. The problem is that if you have any insurance, Eli Lilly does not offer any assistance, even if the cost of the medicine is still too high. If you do not have any insurance, assistance will be provided.

I believe that if you cannot afford the medicine, whether or not you have insurance, you should be able to get some assistance. If you take Strattera and have the same difficulty in affording the cost of the medicine, please make your voices heard.
