mississippi WIC & Similac

My 2 month old daughter is having really bad stomach problems. The only thing that has worked and I mean worked miracles and she even sleeps 6 hours at night with this formula is Similac. The Dr has tried her on everything under the sun even hypoalleric and organic the Similac advanced soy turns my baby into a new child. In mississippi WIC uses enfamil and when I asked the ped for a script for her to be on Similac thru wic the dr was like oh no in MS wic wont give u Similac. you are gonna have to buy it. I asked well wont they give me a voucher or something and she said no. MS does not participate in vouchers.
Similac and Enfamil does have a different base so they are not the same. Can't really afford Similac especially since its the most expensive formula out there.
Does anyone have a simular situation or know any way I can get this thru WIC?

Yeh and let me save some of you the trouble yeh yeh you dont like the fact i get
