Re: How do you manage your prescription meds?

I had no problem with 'basic' cholesterol and bp meds. But, I'm now taking Revlimid for bone marrow cancer --- retail price is $1000 a pill. My cost, with AARP Plan D, with the donut hole, will be about $16000 a year. I'm applying  to charitable foundations for monies. First 21 pills cost me about $3000 and put me through donut hole and catastrophic coverage. But continuing, it will be about $1100 a month for 21 pills.  

   So, bottom line is that I can only manage this, without some financial assistance, only so long before this really takes a bite out of savings.

Do you find the high cost of prescription medications challenging? If so, what are your ways of dealing with this?
