For anyone that missed the article in last weeks press, there is a new service that helps people who need help it get prescription medication cheap or even for free. Supposedly there were always patient assistant programs in NJ but many were hard to get access too. RX 4 NJ says it includes information on 275 assistance programs run by public and private organizations which will offer help with over 1,800 different medications.

I take Adderall and unfortunately that isn't on the list but Ritalin, Dexedrine, Concerta, Straterra plus a ton of anti depressants and other common meds were so I'm sure it would be helpful for some here. The aritcle was in Wednesday's 1/5 Asbury Park Press incase anyone wants to reads it.

Phone number for service is: 888-RXFORNJ or (888) 793-6765

Similar programs are in effect in illinios, Ohio, Rhode Island, Washington and W. Virginia, so if you know people looking for help in those states it might be woirth mentioning also.
