... Their website was the first I went to. I've looked into getting the med and I don't qualify for anything at all. Hubby makes $1,018 too much for me to get it free from the company and there is no other program that would help me get it low cost. It sucks but we're a class of working poor. We don't qualify for any help from anyone but yet we live from paycheck to paycheck... (16 replies)

... For RSD to control the pain correctly you need it in 4 day intervals with your breakthroughs in between that. But, Maybe you should get off the Oxycodone and on to something else if it's not working for you. All narcotics wear off after a few weeks or so and you have to go higher and higher on them.
