    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Assistance with Expensive Medications

    I have had many patients whose pocket book is stretched by taking many expensive medications. One of the most useful Internet sites is Needy Meds.org http://www.needymeds.org/index.htm . Although the process is a bit complicated you can download forms and apply for free medication or discount coupons. If it seems too complicated, ask a family member or neighbor to help you. Many community organizations or stroke support groups will help you with the forms. It isn well worth the effort as I have seen many patients save thousands of dollars a year.
