Patient Assistance Program
Many programs are available from federal and state governments, non-profits, manufacturers, and other organizations to help you get the drugs you need at a reduced cost. Eligibility is often based on income, insurance or Medicare status, and other factors. You’ll need to apply through each program, either online, over the phone, or with your doctor's help. The following program is offered by the manufacturer of this drug.
|Program Name:||Merck Helps|

|What are the restrictions?||Most people without insurance and with limited incomes will qualify.|

Lower Cost Alternative
There may be other prescriptions in the same class (that work in the same way) that could treat your condition just as well at a much lower cost.
If you're taking an expensive brand-name-only drug, it may be worth asking your doctor if there are any other less expensive, generic, or over-the-counter options that might work for you.
