    Thank you for this info which I will try
    I Have a very important question. My local chapter provides NO help.
    My question is : Is there any known Medication Buying club for those that
    A) must be on very expensive brand-name drugs.
    B) have tried the generic.
    C) My local state chapter provides NO help.
    D) The brand-name company provides no help.
    My Brand name drug is Keppra . The generic is Levetiracetam. The manufacturer of the generic was Lupin, an Indian Company.

    I checked the Needy Meds website to see what they had, and they do have some programs available that dispense the generic Levetiracetam.

    http://www.needymeds.org/drug_list.t...me&name=Keppra

    There are two that i saw. One is http://www.xubex.com/Medlist.aspx

    The is info about the other one. This is the link to the Keppra page although the drug is the generic. The specific company is ******* Pharmaceuticals, and information can be found on the Net but this is the name. This particular plan/program is out of Missouri and it seems easy to qualify for. I think the distributer is in Michigan.


    "******* Pharmaceuticals Ltd. is the flagship company of the ******* Group. Based in Ahmedabad, it was promoted by U. N. Mehta initially as Trinity Laboratories ..."

    The site mentions the cost is $20.00 for script, but I called, and that is not correct. I got this info from the pharmacist at this program in Mo. They tell me that a 90 day supply is $50.00 no matter the strength needed!!! You can find the application process at that link, and can call and get info in application process. Hope this helps. I will be interested in how it works. I have never taken the generic and may have to. Tattoo.

    Thank You so much.
    I Know, from previous attempts that I do not qualify for Needymeds. The noose is 12,000 annual income

    I am looking into the second.
    The link to start that process is:

    HI Linnie, Both are on NeedyMeds. One is out of Michigan and the other Fla. Criteria for the first is 300% of the Federal Poverty Level which can be found from http://coverageforall.org/pdf/FHCE_FedPovertyLevel.pdf and the requirements are on the Needymeds site as:

    Eligibility Requirements

    MEDICATION Keppra (leviteracetam)
    Insurance Status May have insurance
    Those with Part D Eligible? Yes
    Income At or below 300% of FPL
    Diagnosis/Medical Criteria Not required
    US Residency Required? Must reside in the US
    Hope this helps. Let us know what you find out an what you think. That pharmacist I talked to said that meds that come in from other countries still legally have to meet some FDA requirements if sent to a distributor here in the US. Donno if those requirements are watered down nor how they differ from those manufactured here. May be no difference. Tattoo
