Where i can get free plavix?

HELP PLEASE!!!! does anyone know where i can get free plavix? after my last heart attack i have been unable to return to work. i took a 90 day leave under fmla, but my time is up so i ve lost my insurance. my cardiologist changed all of my other meds to generic so i can get them for $4.oo @ walmart, but there is NO generic for plavix. please help i don t want to have another heart attack, i m only 47 and i ve already had 3. I don t qualify for medicaid unless soc ssec decides i am disabled and even though i have applied, it can sometimes take years to get a decision. also, i have asked both my primay and cardiologist for samples and they don t have any.

My father, 81, (after a 4 bypass surgery back in the 80s) has undergone a stent/baloon procedure two days ago at NYU hospital. (Two arteries were disconnected/blocked.) He is home now. Has been prescribed: Aspirin, Plavix, & Pletal for 6 months. He is now complaining of chest pain. Is that normal after the procedure?

My 68 year old husband has a history of kidney stones. He had a lithotripsy 4 days ago for a kidney stone after having a stent placed for a week prior. The stone was intially lodged in the ureter but was too high to have a basket retrieval so it was pushed back into the kidney for the later lithotripsy. He was taken off Plavix and ASA he takes for 2 prior heart attacks. He was taking Hydrocodone every 4 hours for pain. He also has a hx of prostate cancer successfully treated by proton therapy. The stent was removed yesterday. He developed low abdominal discomfort, lethargy, loss of appetite and a low grade temp. He is voiding without difficulty. IVP was done today along with a urinalysis, CBC and chem profile but all is normal. Waiting on urine culture results. IM Rosefin and PO Ceclor was started today. He continues with the low grade temp, now no higher than 100.8 but has no appetite (is drinkining) and falls asleep at the drop of a hat. He is currently taking Acetaminaphen for the temp above 100, Ceclor 3x/day and Protonix. MD does not think problem could be a fungal infection. Just waiting now for urine culture results but my husband is miserable in the meantime. Any thoughts?
