Below, I will list free drug samples by mail on select over-the-counter products as they become available. These samples will include pain relievers, vitamins, supplements and other such free samples.
Each time you visit your doctor, ask for free drug samples. If you have a good doctor that has been prescribing this drug to you anyway, they will be happy to help! Don’t be ashamed to ask! They have a room full of free medicines that were given to them expressly for the purpose of giving them away to patients.
Have you ever noticed those people coming in, very well dressed, with briefcases, when you're in the doctor's waiting room. They always get buzzed in ahead of the patients. Well, they represent the pharmaceutical companies. They get to go straight back with their freebies. The next time you're in your doctor's office and waiting room look around. You'll see the free posters, the free hand sanitizer bottles, the tissue boxes, the boxes of gloves and so on and so on with names of medications and pharmaceutical companies on them. These are all given to the doctor's offices for free along with free medications for us to try by the pharmaceutical companies. Of course, the hope is that the doctor will prescribe that drug to us, then we're on it for years or even for life, and ching-ching for the pharmaceutical company. Ask yourself - when is the last time the doctor took you OFF of a medication? It's a rarity, right?!!! Unless, you complain about having side-effects from it. So, we all pay for these freebies in the way of over-priced medications. And I look at it this way... the doctor's are getting their freebies, so we might as well get ours!
So, either tell your doctor if you don't have insurance and can't afford to buy the pills. Or if you've run out and need some to tide you over until you can afford more. Even if you have insurance, but the insurance won't cover the pill because it's not generic, and the pill is way too expensive (I had that situation once. The pill cost $25 a piece - ridiculous!), ask if they can spare any. Then say that you'll take as many as they can spare! Sometimes you will be surprised at the quantity of free samples that your doctor will give to you. When I didn't have insurance, some of my doctors were VERY, VERY generous with the free samples! So don't be afraid to let them know your situation.
Follow the daily Freebies and Deals Blog and I will inform you when the free samples are available on these sites!

Direct from Manufacturers
You can get discount coupons and/or coupons for free products simply by emailing the product manufacturer directly. I've done this many times myself. Email them with a compliment, product suggestion or even a complaint, and many times, they will send you product coupons. Email them specifically asking for product coupons and guess what, they'll send you coupons! Tell them how much you or a family member love their product (tell them which specific product), then ask if they can mail you any free product coupons or discount coupons. Nine times out of ten, you'll get them!
Facebook & Twitter
Follow the brands that you wear and like on Facebook and Twitter and be on the lookout for announcements of product giveaways.
