Pentasa and VSL-3

Every few weeks, I have to go to my doctor for free samples of Pentasa and VSL-3. Otherwise, the medicine is too expensive. But I have to take a cab which is expensive. Any suggestions? I hope I am not asking too many questions or making too many posts.

I Would also try the pentasa assistance program. Their phone number is 866-888-0660. There is alot of things they require you to show (paystub/tax info/) plus they have an income limit to receive the assistance but its worth a try!! I never ended up going that route. goodluck!
