how to get assistance for wasting products?

Nov 4, 2003

Hi Nelson,

Regards to all your great work! Nelson, is there any way to get some type of assistance to aid one in buying products as megace, oxandrin, or serotism? They are all too expensive for most of us to afford? How can you afford therapy? Any input is so valuable! THank you.

Thanks a million!


Response from Mr. Vergel


Yes, every company has a patient assistance program. The bests are the ones from BTG (Oxandrin), Unimed (Anadrol, Androgel, Marinol). Serono's (growth hormone) is a lot harder to get in (lots of forms to fill out by your doc) but you can also access free Serostim if you have lost 10 % of your normal body weight and do not have any insurance or Medicaid. I have a very strong bias against Megace since it decreases testosterone, increases fat and hyperglycemia, and can make men impotent.

There are the links for the free programs:


Marinol, Androgel, Anadrol:
