Saving Money While Living With Multiple Sclerosis

Who Doesn’t Want To Save Money When Dealing With Medical Issues?

Handling Multiple Sclerosis

People who are suffering from any of the Multiple Sclerosis varieties (or know someone who does) have to let their feelings of daily confusion about what is happening to their lives get out or they may EXPLODE!!  Cleaning up after an explosion can be quite messy for the best of people who are in good health, so imagine doing it when you may not be able to stop shaking or even stand up while vomiting all over the place!  Not a pretty picture, is it?

Keep Hands On Wallet At All Times

Keeping a supply of generic Dramamine may help stop the spewing of your last meal on the floor (doctors will probably try to dispense the pricey name brand drugs), but try the generics if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients (money saving tips).  With all the medicines a person with MS has to swallow each day, try to keep the price of each pill that you wash down your gullet more cost effective.

You will be pleasantly surprised about the alternatives that exist to name brand solutions.  Just takes a little investigation time that will pay off with great dividends by saving a few pennies with each usage of the more reasonably priced product.  Even better solution may be to start shopping where you can purchase your pills and other life staples at a discount and/ or in bulk!

Make Pharmaceutical Friends

Let your local Pharmacist know that you read each prescription’s paperwork that is sent along with the medicine in great detail, by calling if you suspect there may be a negative reaction with other medicines in your normal daily routines.  You are not being annoying, you are just protecting both yourself and the pharmacologist in case of a chance of  interaction! A pharmacist in the family was the first person to stumble blindly into the fact I might have MS by me asking if he knew anything about a drug by the name of Avonex!
