View Full Version : Any success with Shire Cares assistance program?

03-18-17, 10:12 PM
My doctor just upped my dose of Vyvanse to 50 mg in the morning and another 20 mg in the afternoon. I do have insurance through my husband's employed but they only cover 50% of brand name medications and there is no way in hell we can afford that. I'm a full time student and my husband is currently the one supporting the family. I'm going to apply to the program as soon as I see my doctor again but am worried that I won't get accepted. Has anyone else had any success with this program?

In the past, I've heard people talking about it like it was not a problem for them to get on it. That's all I know.

If it doesn't work out, give (generic) Dexedrine spansules a try.
