OP you can buy drugs from online pharmacies in Canada. When my dad (lives in the US) lost his insurance a few years back they were amazing and the drugs were significantly cheaper. You can all them directly.

I bought B12 from Canada and it was cheap.

They can apply for Obamacare / the open exchange. If she can’t afford a specific med, perhaps she can go directly to the manufacturer and ask.

My friend is a small business owner that is classified as non-essential. She has lost her income and cannot afford to pay her premiums. So she has lost her insurance but needs essential meds.

Can she call the maker of the meds and get some samples? Or the dr?

Thank you! Will suggest.

Incoming 1st yr BigLaw associate (V50 in a big city). I am curious if there are networking benefits to having expensive work clothes/accessories.

But if having a Rolex or wearing Brooks Brothers suits would improve my standing w partners or if dressing cheaper would hurt, then I’d suck it up. Pls advise
