Well the first thing everyone needs to realize is that . You do not have to become a health nut or do major changes in your lifestyle to get major positive effects on your health. A side benefit is that in general, people living a healthy lifestyle are happier than those who do not. The ideas on that link do not make your life more difficult. They make it easier.
There are a quite a lot of different ways to save money on medication. For people who do not have insurance (including Medicare Part D and Medicaid) it is usually a good idea to read these first three topics.
Now would be a good time to start reading Subjects instead of Topics. Here are some good ones to try.
The Subject "" has very good examples of the various ways a person can take their list of medications and then reduce their costs to an absolute minimum. (Or make informed choices about why sometimes they might wish to pay more.) This Subject is also a place where you can post your specific medication list (with dosages and number of times per day for each medication) and people can respond with ideas for you about reducing the costs.
Many people believe it is good to see their doctor as someone providing a service (like a plumber). Explaining exactly what you want can often help reduce costs. Such as "Is their an equivalent drug that will probably work just as well but is less expensive?"
