    I was prescribed the anti-depressant sertraline today by my doctor for my depression, severe anxiety and panic attacks.

    Upon going to collect them I was told that there's a charge of £12.62 for them each month. I recently turned 19 and do not have a job so I have no way to pay for them.
    Is there anyway to get them for free or for the cost of them to be covered??

    Do you receive any income based benefits? If not, do what the person below you said and fill in a HC1 form.
