During a recent medical exam my doctor recommended I start taking a daily dose of a well known medicine. I requested a generic equivalent instead of the brand drug. I nearly fainted From sticker shock when I got to the pharmacy and saw the $763 price tag for a 3-month supply of the generic version! (The brand name drug would be more than $900 at my pharmacy.)
Medical costs have skyrocketed during the past decade, averaging 8.5% higher every year. Who can afford to get sick? Who can afford to pay for preventive medications to stay well?
I lead a healthy lifestyle. I eat a balanced diet. I exercise daily. I don’t smoke. But, I can’t change my DNA.
I did some research and found a similar medication at a local pharmacy for $753 less for a 90-day supply. Hopefully, this $10 solution will keep me well. It may already be working. Just thinking about the money I saved…I swear I can already feel my blood pressure dropping…
So, what do you think? Have you had any Prescription Nightmares? Do you have any suggestions on how to get good, affordable medical care?
