The high cost of drugs is enough to make you sick, but there are a plethora of programs that can help. If you're having trouble affording your prescriptions, this is for you.

Pharmacist Charles Strauss has seen it all before, especially in this tough economy. As he counts out pills for a prescription, he tells Money Talks News, “People are out of work, people don’t have any money. It’s a very real problem. What they don’t realize is that by doing this they may possibly wind up in the hospital thereby increasing their health costs”.

For those on a fixed income, it may seem like the only choice. Pharmacists are noticing something is wrong.

“They’re supposed to have a month’s supply of medication they’ll come back in two months, you know they’re cutting their medications in half or taking half the dosages” Strauss said.

According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey, nearly a quarter of people on prescriptions have skipped or reduced doses in the past year to save money. Doctors say it’s a prescription for disaster.

But while we wait for a more permanent solution to the high cost of health care, it’s important to know that there are a lot of resources that can help right now. Especially with prescription drugs.

So, what can you do? Step one is to tell your doctor. Often times, they might help by offering free samples or prescribing a less-expensive generic.

Another way to receive help with medications, is to reach out to patient assistant programs. There are literally hundreds available. Including a much-publicized Partnership for Prescription Assistance, sponsored by a group of large drug companies. If you qualify, you can get free meds. Together Rx Access makes finding medications easy if you don’t qualify for free meds. The website offers a discount card that can save you 25% to 40%. It only takes a few seconds to see if you qualify.

Bottom line? While you will have to jump through hoops for help, use it anyway. Because doing without your prescription isn’t frugal, it’s foolish.
