Is Your Teen Suffering From Depression?

Depression is an issue that doesn’t have an age limit. While it’s true that awareness about depression has raised over recent years, it’s still a major problem among young adults— especially teenagers. After all, teenagers face an onslaught of pressures that adults don’t have to worry about anymore, ranging from puberty and personal growth to college placement tests and first boyfriends/girlfriends. What most parents would call “moodiness” could very well be something much more serious. The good news is there are ways you can help. If you suspect that your teen might be struggling with depression, there are ways you can identify the signs, show support, and get professional help as needed.

Signs and Symptoms of Teen Depression

One of the trickiest parts of addressing teen depression is recognizing it in the first place. Adults

have a stronger sense of recognizing personal problems because they don’t have to rely on caregivers like parents, teachers and guidance counselors to point out the signs. If you can’t recognize that your teenager is struggling with depression, chances are (s)he won’t recognize it either. This is why it’s important to learn what the not-so-obvious warning signs are. These might include:

  • anger
  • fatigue
  • sadness
  • irritability
  • restlessness
  • frequent crying
  • social withdrawal
  • lack of motivation
  • feelings of hopelessness
  • feelings of worthlessness
  • changes in diet or appetite
  • poor performance in school
  • unusual changes in sleeping habits
  • loss of interest in favorite activities
  • talk or thoughts of death or suicide

Address the Problem

Depression is a mental health issue that opens the gate for other problems if left untreated. The signs and symptoms listed above shouldn’t be chalked up to teen angst. They won’t just go away. So, if you suspect that your teen is struggling with depression, the first step to treating the problem is addressing it. You can start the conversation by letting your child know why you’re worried and which signs of depression you’ve noticed. It’s also important to remember to:

  • bring up your concerns without passing any kind of judgment
  • ask your teen about what (s)he is going through without being patronizing
  • listen to what your teen has to say without offering unsolicited advice
  • be loving and understanding, just like in any other situation

The best thing you can do at this point is to show that you’re supportive of your teen. Then you can move on to discussing potential solutions.

Improve Mental Health with Physical Health

Mental health and physical health are linked, so improving one will actually boost both. Depression is a condition that brings about things like lethargy, poor nutrition, and sleeplessness— all of which are physical issues. So, when addressing depression, the best treatments are the ones that counter these effects. As a parent, you can help your teen combat depressive behaviors by establishing a healthy routine and building a supportive home environment.

Exercise

Most experts agree that both children and teens need at least one hour of exercise every day to lead a healthy life. Something important to keep in mind, however, is that it shouldn’t feel like a chore. Otherwise, your teen will be less inclined to make exercise a part of his or her everyday routine. Doing little things like walking the dog, riding bikes, rollerblading or skateboarding can help your teen reach their one-hour quota. You can always do something together, too.

Diet

A balanced diet is an important thing for just about anyone to have. If your teen is struggling with depression, one way to help is by making sure he or she is getting enough nutrition. Nutrition is an area of health that is often overlooked, but it plays a major role in both physical and mental health. Incorporating healthy fats, lean protein, and fresh produce into your teen’s diet will aid in important mental functions like mood regulation.

Sleep

Sleep is one of the most prominent natural solutions to a wide variety of health problems— including depression. So, make sure your teen is getting plenty of sleep every night. Something important to keep in mind is that teenagers actually need more sleep than adults do in order to function normally. The recommended amount of sleep for teens ranges from 8 to 10 hours per night.

Getting Professional Help

go towards the hope

Offering support and helping your teen make healthy lifestyle changes will help combat depression, but it’s not guaranteed to fix everything. Since depression is an ailment of the brain, there could be factors in play that are out of your control. After all, fruits and veggies might not be enough to treat a deep-rooted hormonal imbalance.  So, if your teen is struggling with depression and the changes you’ve made together aren’t enough, getting professional help from a psychologist or psychiatrist can help even more. By working with a professional, you and your teen can explore the numerous medications and clinical treatment options available that have high success rates. However, be sure to get input; making decisions about your teen’s mental health without consent may worsen the problem.

If Your Teen is Struggling with Depression, Rx Helper Has the Solution

Treating depression start with recognizing the signs. Once you and your teen have worked through everything and made healthy changes to your daily routine, the final piece of the puzzle could be finding the right medication. At Rx Helper, our prescription assistance program can help you find the best and most affordable medication for your depressed teen. If you have questions about our enrollment process or would like more information about the medications we cover, please call us at 877-767-3297.

happy thanksgiving turkey

Happy Thanksgiving from The Rx Helper!

We’d like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving from everyone here at the Rx Helper! Tomorrow, take some time to be grateful for the things that you have and the loved ones in your life. If you have the privilege of spending time with your family this holiday season, make it about them! The holidays should be filled with great conversation, mouth-watering food, and memories that will last a lifetime. If you aren’t able to spend time with friends and family this season, remember that life is a gift and you are loved. Below, we’re going to share some of our favorite healthy recipes that you can use for this Thanksgiving or for next year’s festivities. By incorporating some of these recipes, you can save over 1,000 calories during your feast.

Healthy Thanksgiving Alternatives

Turkey: instead of white meat with skin, opt for dark meat without the skin. Even though turkey skin tastes delicious, it can add hundreds of calories to your dinner plate. As a bonus, dark meat is richer in zinc and iron than white meat.

Dessert: opt for pumpkin pie or apple pie instead of pecan pie. Pecan pie may be the highest-calorie item at most Thanksgiving day meals, with a slice clocking in at over 500 calories. Pumpkin pie has less sugar and calories and is around 300 calories per slice on average. Sweet potato casserole with marshmallows also tends to cross the line from side-dish to dessert, so consider baking a few sweet potatoes instead of making the casserole this year.

Appetizers: try eating carrots with hummus and Greek yogurt instead of cheese and crackers. You can save over 80 calories a serving when you compare the nutritional value of these two foods. Instead of dinner rolls, try serving a vegetable and fruit platter that has a healthy dipping sauce! Carrots, celery, cucumbers, and fruits are popular choices. By filling up on high-fiber, nutrient-dense foods, it leaves less room for the higher-calorie items at the end of the feast.

Drinks: cocktails are often filled with lots of sugary mixers and cream (such as a white Russians). There are many Thanksgiving day cocktails that contain quite a bit of sugar, so opt for a red wine or low-calorie light beer instead.

Avoid the Common Cold this Holiday Season

Not unlike an unwanted Christmas present, catching a cold during your holiday-time-off is something that everyone goes through once or twice. You didn’t need that wheezy cough trying to blow out the candles on the New Year’s Eve cake and Grandpa Joe didn’t need boxers with Frank Sinatra printed on the trunks; some years, everyone is going to take a loss. With the common cold season (winter) right around the corner, there are a couple of precautions you can take to help prevent an unexpected surprise this holiday season.

Preventing the Common Cold

There are a few reasons why people tend to get cold when its… cold. No, it’s not because they’re cold. Its because they’ve gotten a cold. The cold air helps viruses survive longer sans a host, allowing the virus more time to cling to an unsuspecting sweater or labradoodle. The flu virus also tends to circulate in the air when it is cold and dry as opposed to when the weather is warm and damp: this is because there is less weight in the air and water droplets evaporate faster in dry, cold environments, allowing the water droplets and microbes to get some airtime when flicked off a scarf. People also tend to spend more time indoors in the winter. Many inside venues are packed due to unfavorable external conditions, as people pile into family homes, packed taverns, city squares, and jails to stay warm. What can you do to help prevent illness during this festive 2018?

Wash Your Hands: I cannot believe the number of people I count that do not wash their hands after going to the public restroom. You monsters. Washing your hands is the number one way to prevent illness. Stop with all the nonsense about vitamin C and other snake-oil counter-measures; washing your hands is the O.G. of preventative health care and doesn’t cost much at all.

sick girl with a drug problemCover Your Cough: This may seem like common sense, but many people fail to realize that there is generally more than one person in a crowded public place, such as a subway. If you are coughing, try to cover your mouth with your elbow. This is much better than coughing into your hands because you touch hundreds of surfaces with those extremities every day. Your fellow human beings will thank you.

Eat Healthier and Exercise: There are numerous studies that tout the importance of exercise and healthy eating. Deadlifts, broccoli, and chicken are going to make you feel better than Budweiser, potato chips, and inactivity. From increased immune responses to lower cholesterol to improved overall vitality, eating healthy and exercising should be a given.

Prescription Assistance Programs

There are some diseases and illnesses that aren’t so easy to fight off or prevent. If you have a chronic and debilitating condition that requires a prescription, the rules start to change. If you are under-insured or uninsured and have difficulties paying for your prescription medications, we can help. Instead of choosing between holiday shopping and prescription medications, choose both! The RX Helper assists low-income uninsured/under-insured Americans by getting them the prescription medications they need at a fraction of the retail price. Our mission is to increase awareness of patient assistance and boost enrollment of those who are eligible through a variety of prescription assistance programs.

Assistance with Insulin

Diabetes requires lifetime commitment in terms of care. Other than exercise and diet changes, many diabetic people are required to take insulin to control their blood sugar. Some people find it difficult to cover the costs of insulin doses that add up on their own. Here is some info regarding assistance with insulin:

Are you diabetic and need help to cover your medication?

Well, you have a reason to smile again. There are certain programs that help cover this expense like the Patient Assistance Programs (PAP). This money saving program is often backed by medical institutions, nonprofits, and drug companies. Most PAPs provide insulin medication and supplies at a low or no cost. Although prescription financial assistance may not be provided, you can get prescription help.

It is important to understand that each PAP criteria and requirements for their programs are different. This means that diabetic people who need help have to spend time filling out applications. Not everyone qualifies because a PAP may not be covering the particular insulin a patient uses. Below are examples of these programs.

Diabetes Foundation, Inc.

This foundation offers diabetes medications and supplies to low-income and uninsured diabetics. They also provide updated information on diabetes and the complications involved. They also help patients understand how to maintain a healthy life.

North Dakota Community Action Partnership

All the seven community action agencies in North Dakota provide general diabetic supplies for both moderate and low-income individuals including senior citizens, families or any other people in crisis situations.

Novo Nordisk Patient Assistance Program

In this program, free medicine is provided to those who qualify. If approved, they send a free 120-day medicine supply to the patient through the prescribing healthcare providers. Novo Nordisk normally contacts the health care provider after 90 days to approve the refill of the medication.

Takeda Patient Assistance Program

This program provides Amitiza, Rozerem and Dexilant to the eligible individuals. They believe that all patients have a right to access medication even when in difficult financial situations.

Lilly Cares Patient Assistance

In Lilly Cares, qualified individuals receive a 120-day medicine supply through a shipment to the specific health care providers. Prescription refills are availed during the patient’s 1-year enrollment period. Patients are required to complete refill forms and then submit them.

To access more patient assistance programs, use organizations like:

NeedyMeds

The Rx Helper

Rx Assist

Some of the medications where assistance is provided are:

Humalog

This is a fast-acting human insulin analog that lowers the blood glucose levels. It treats type 1 diabetes (insulin dependent) in adults. It is usually administered together with a long-acting insulin. To treat type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent) in adults, Humalog is also used with oral medications.

Because this medication begins to work quickly, it should be used with a meal 15 minutes before or immediately after eating. Humalog should not be used if an individual is allergic to insulin or if they have a hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) episode.

Lantus

This is a man-made hormone that is produced in the body that works through lowering glucose levels in the blood. This long-acting form of insulin is different compared to other forms of insulin’s and is used to treat both type 2 and 1 diabetes. One should not use Lantus if they are allergic to insulin glargine, if they have a hypoglycemia episode or if in diabetic ketoacidosis state.

NovoLog

NovoLog is a rapid acting form of insulin that lowers the blood glucose levels. It is used to treat children as long as they are two years old and type 1 diabetic adults. This medication is normally administered along another long-acting insulin. A patient is required to take a meal 5-10 minutes after using NovoLog. Any individual who is allergic to insulin or having a hypoglycemia episode should not use NovoLog.

If you need help with your diabetic insulin costs, please contact The Rx Helper today at (866) 949-7353 for a free qualification. The Rx Helper is a prescription assistance company that provides insulin assistance to many diabetic patients.

Inhaler Rx Assistance

People with asthma absolutely need their inhalers, and they may need inhaler assistance. Some people will have the condition more severely than others, but asthma attacks frequently do not go away on their own. People without access to asthma inhalers will be risking their lives in the process. No one goes without an asthma inhaler by choice. Some of the people who are suffering with asthma have to pay through the nose in order to afford their medication, because they are either uninsured or minimally insured. RX inhaler assistance can make all the difference in their lives and that includes saving their lives.

Should I stop using my inhaler if I can’t afford it?

Some people with mild asthma may try to go without their medication altogether. These people are risking their health in the process, and making a sacrifice that almost no one would ever want to make in order to understandably avoid very high medication costs. Some types of medication are negotiable. Inhalers for asthma and similar breathing problems are not. People should never feel as if they have to treat medicines like these as luxuries, and they should never have to make other sacrifices in order to afford them. Many patients should be able to get a free inhaler through the Rx inhaler assistance program.

What are some of the requirements of inhaler Rx assistance?

The people who enter into this program are going to have to be U.S. citizens or legal residents. Their income levels must equate to around 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level, and that should be per household as opposed to per person. The defining qualification involves a person’s prescription insurance coverage. The people in question should either have none of it or very little of it. People who have questions about their level of prescription insurance coverage should definitely get in contact with the representatives of the Rx inhaler assistance program. However, if these people are unable to even afford their inhalers easily even with their minimal prescription insurance coverage, then they should probably be able to get the coverage that they need through the RX inhaler assistance program.

What is the catch when applying for assistance?

People who try to get involved with this program are also not going to be taking any risks in the process, financially or otherwise, which should make a huge difference for them. They are not going to have to pay any application fees or any other related fees. People should not have to pay just for the possibility that they will be able to get all of the medication coverage that they need. The Rx inhaler assistance program is aimed at the people who have struggled in the past just to provide for themselves and for their families.

People should be clear that this program is not just another form of insurance. People need some types of medication now: some health problems are chronic and do not simply present as medical emergencies.

The Rx inhaler assistance program is also not affiliated with the American government.

People who have failed to qualify for governmental or private insurance in the past may finally have the opportunity to do so when it comes to this program.

Help With the Cost of Medication

With the costs of medications skyrocketing in America, it is no wonder people are financially struggling. Those who do not have insurance can end up paying thousands of dollars a year. Those with prescription insurance coverage may have much of their costs covered, but they also must pay out hundreds in out-of-pocket co-pays. If you are not covered through insurance, there are are prescription assistance plans that can help. Through these programs, people can get the help they need so they can afford their medications.

How Do Prescription Assistance Plans Work?

With Rx assistance, people who do not have health insurance coverage can receive assistance with their medication and may be able to receive their medication for free if they meet certain qualifications. These programs are often referred to as PAP (prescription assistance programs) or medication assistance programs. With the vast majority of drug companies now offering PAP programs, people without insurance can receive the medications they need, yet cannot afford. To find out if you are eligible, you will simply need to apply and meet the criteria of the PAP.

What are the Eligibility and Enrollment Requirements of PAP?

Depending on the Rx assistance program, an applicant will need to meet certain eligibility requirements to be considered for lowered cost or free medications:

* A person must have limited or no insurance coverage for prescription medications.

* The applicant must have a financial need and fall under the income and asset limits for their family size.

* The person applying for a PAP must be a United States citizen and have proof of their citizenship.

Depending on the prescription assistance program, the patient and their doctor may need to fill out an application and submit it to the PAP. Additional pieces of information are often needed, such as:

* Medical documentation providing information on why the drug is needed

* Proof the patient does not have prescription drug coverage and is not eligible for Medicare or Medicaid

* W2s, income tax returns, bank statements and check stubs provide proof of income

The income requirements vary by program and correlate to family size. For instance, one program requires a one-person family to make no more than $19,600 per year. A family of four cannot make more than $40,000 per year.

What Happens When a Person Is Approved for a PAP?

The approval process can sometimes take a few weeks to be completed. Once the patient has been approved for prescription assistance, the medication will typically be sent to the patient’s doctor or their pharmacy so it can be distributed.

The amount of medication the patient will receive at one time depends on the program. Some rx assistance programs will only give a one-month supply at a time while others may give up to six months.

Some prescription assistance programs certify applicants for an entire year while others may require a new application to be submitted with each refill. It is important people educate themselves on the requirements so they can work with their doctor to ensure the requirements are fully met so there will be no delays in receiving the medications.

How many PAP programs are there to help with prescription assistance?

There are over 270 different Rx assistance programs that can help people to lower their prescription costs or provide them with free medications. Though the eligibility requirements are different for each of these companies, there are three main qualifications that must be met for all. As long as a person meets the income requirements for their family size, is a United States citizen and has no prescription insurance coverage, they are likely to qualify for most, if not all, of the available programs.

If you are without prescription drug coverage and want to learn how you can receive the help you need to be able to get your medications, visit The Rx Helper. We will be more than willing to help you through the process so you can find out if you qualify for Rx assistance. We are very knowledgeable in many different PAP programs available. Visit the site today and get started on the enrollment process so we can work with you and your doctor to get the medications you need as soon as possible.

Prescription Financial Assistance

What is prescription financial assistance?

Medicines are necessary for recovering from physical ailments, but they don’t come cheap and most often, some of them are downright affordable to the common man. That doesn’t mean that people shouldn’t have a right to access these medications.

Every person needs access to effective and safe medication — and financial constraints should not stand in the way of people using medication. And yet, it is appalling to see that some people find it difficult to afford the right medication and seek unsafe alternatives that do more harm than good. Without the right medication of advice, it’s likely that patients don’t take the right dosage, nor do they follow the correct frequency — putting their health and life at risk.

When patients are able to use medication properly, their lives and health will improve. This also means that healthcare spending reduces, since expensive surgeries and hospitalizations are prevented in the future through proper medication use. That’s why many people require prescription financial assistance to help them access all kinds of medication — even if it is beyond their budget.

Prescription assistance programs are now being provided for offering medication to qualifying patients from a variety of sources.

Here are some common sources that now offer prescription assistance:
Drug Companies for a variety of medications and treatments (this is restricted to individual brands).
Many websites enable patience to look for prescription assistance programs based on the medication required.
Non-profit services also help you to find state-run or private prescription assistance programs based on where you live.

What can prescription financial assistance do for me?

These prescription assistance programs can help you pay for healthcare, prescriptions, utilities, food and much more while you are ailing. You can also seek help to get some tax relief and work through any legal issues. They also help you find work and offer transportation support — depending on your specific needs. Some of the prescription assistance programs will help patients get their medication for free or close to free. Millions of patients have already benefited from these prescriptions financial assistance programs. They remain an essential part of helping people access proper healthcare and medication — even if they can’t afford it.

The Rx Helper is a company that specializes in the various prescription assistance programs. We are here to answer many questions and concerns you may have. Contact The Rx Helper today at (866) 949-7353. Lets us lend you a helping hand.
