  • freemedicine.com is a scam

    Just wanted to let you all know that freemedicine.com is a bad company. There are lots of terrible reviews about them taking money and not sending anything and then won't refund the money. The BBB gives them a F.

    I filled out the form on line but then never sent it in because they were asking for my checking account number and driver's license number. BUT...they sent me e-mails and called me!!!! I never pushed send!!!!

    Stay away!!!

    Never under any circumstances give anyone on the internet your checking account number or driver's license number or social security number.

    You made a wise decision!

      Yikes! Good thing you didn't enter your numbers!
      Please consider food allergy testing. My regular doc thought the idea was pointless. My IC doc referred me to allergist and I found I have severe multiple food allergies that seem to be causing the bulk of my bad IC symptoms.

      Severe IC w/Hunners Ulcers, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Myofascial Pain, Severe Multiple Food Allergies(corn, milk, egg, beef, tomato, string bean, peas, sulfites) w/severe enviro allergies to go along.

      Current Meds:

      Amitriptyline 10mg @ bedtime
      Atarax - 50 mg @ bedtime
      Loratadine - 10mg in morning
      Pepcid - 20 mg in morning
      Klonopin - .5 as needed & @ bedtime
      Endocet 10/325 - as needed
      Flexeril - as needed
      Prelief as needed

      On harsh diet. Low-acid IC diet with 100% avoidance of egg, corn, milk, and sulfites. Not fun at all...

      Didn't Help:
      Pyridium as needed
      Elmiron instills 2x/week

      Stopped due to loss of medical coverage:
      Lyrica - 150mg 2x day
      Savella - 50mg 2x day
      Elmiron - 100mg 3x day


      Procedures:

      7-8-09 Laparoscopy, hysterscopy, D&C, endometrial ablasion, bladder hydrodistention and cystoscopy. Found large fibroid on outside of uterus and removed it and they found large Hunners Ulcurs on my bladder indicating moderate to severe IC.

        OMG, it is a good thing you didn't enter any numbers if they kept your info from just you typing it in the form! That's scary stuff!

        I had that happen with an online form for one of those schools that you do like mail-order (now online) classes. I was looking for some info only - I never entered in my work number, I mean why would I want them calling me at work etc (and people thinking I am looking for another job instead of a supplemental one). Well, they did just that! Called me at work - I never ever gave them my number!!!!!!!!!! And to top it off, the man was so rude to me I was stunned, tried to bully me into paying for the course I supposedly signed up for etc. It was unreal!

            This is along the same lines but a little different. The other day I received an e-mail from my bank (it was in the junk mail) and it said that someone was trying to tampering with my accounts. I looked on line and my account looked fine, so I called the bank and said I received this e-mail from them and it was from soandso. The bank said they never did. Luckily, I didn't opened it as it was just a scam to get my information from me.

              help with meds

              Sorry to hear about your bad experiences. We've had a lot of luck in the past going directly to the drug manufacturers, my husband had free Elmoron for six months (didn't work) and also gets free meds for Cymbalta and his COPD inhalers. Now working on the pain meds (oxycodone and fentanyl) and may have a problem with that as he is on disability/Medicare but doesn't have Part D, as we would be in the donut hole in two months, so it didn't make sense. Will let you know how we make out.

                medicare D in my opinoin is terrible drug coverage. This is insurance for our seniors and disabled. .I pay more out of pocket then when I worked full time and made good salary.
                I go without many meds as medicare does NOT cover them and if so they are so expensive they willl put u in donut hole in no time. Once in donut hole u have no drug coverage until 5k out of pocket costs till plan kicks back in

                what is sad when u look at drug companies drug asst web sites and even for coupons u dont qualify if on medicare d. I dont get it those on medicare d on fixed income so why not reduced copays or coupons? only those with no insurance get drug asst or those with private insurance can get say lunesta for 50 copay but if on medicare d lunesta for u ur copay try 98.00 month

                cymbalta on medicare d high copay yes will take u to donut hole . U must go to medicares web site type in ur meds and it will give u total annual costs of your med for year and what medicare d plan best for u $$ .

                I will tell u all medicar d premiums just doubled montly costs and copays on meds doubled. IF u dont have generic level one med it is so expensive towards donut hole
                donut hole not going away till 2020
                so go to medicare web site do ur meds see what plans are best for u $$
                yes depending on amount and what meds u take for some best to forego medicare d and apply for drug asst or reduced copays. yes. do ur research

                I go without so many meds due to medicare d. I miss my private medical insurance very much= one of big reasons I so wish I could work .
