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.

I learned I had CLL in 2008 at age 56; unfortunately required 2 coronary stents later that year, requiring Plavix. within one month I discovered I had ITP also; so my oncologist suggested chemotx which I refused, accepting RCP therapy only(avoided fludarabine). I have had two year "remission" until recently developed respiratory infection which led to the current "Crash "

to 26,000 pltsfor which I have been started on high dose Prednisone. I show no signs of progressive CLL(am considered stage1); thus my question: I'm from large family with history of autoimmune disorders; is it possible that I too have an intercurrent autoimmmune disease also, despite CLL?

I just had 2 stents putt in my heart. I was placed on plavix and lipitor in addition to the metoporol and aspirin I was already taking. I am now urinating very frequently (every two -two and 1/2 hours). Any ideas what would cause this change in urination pattern? The heart and stents were inserted 3 weeks ago

Hello, I am 43, 68kg, had an MI last year, and had 2 stents put in, and am very well now. It seems even my ECG has improved. However the past 2 months or so I've noticed that I get, not breathless exactly, but I feel I need to take deep breaths. This doesn't happen always, and there is no tiredness, etc. My doc says this could be triggered by acid reflux because I'm on Aspirin+Plavix as well as Janumet (I'm somewhat diabetic) + 20mg Lipitor. I was checked at the time I was feeling this, and BP was normal. Does acid reflux cause breathlessness while exerting or even otherwise? I don't get this all the time, but it seems to be more these days (I was better when Aspirin was reduced to 75mg from 150 but was put back on 150 later. Now reduced to 81 again ). Thanks.
