I am stunned. Just went and picked up a prescription for my migraine medication. Maxalt - 10 mg pills - one in a package and if I have a migraine I have to take one, maybe two. The prescription was for 9 pills - that is the entire px: 9 pills. Know how much they cost for these 9 pills? $182.49!!!! That is over $20 freaking dollars for each pill.
That is what it is. Robbery.
And that is WITH health insurance. Although I do have a deductible for prescriptions so I have to meet my $200 deductible (which is basically what this was...) before it goes to the co-pay. Even then, it isn't cheap. I think my co-pay is $45.00 per px. Although I must say, that definitely beats $182.49!
And the thing is, I need the medication. I can do without it, but if you have ever had a migraine, you would pay whatever you could to take a pill so you don't get one. They are horrible. And I'm lucky. What if I were a senior citizen or someone on a fixed income. I just think it is horrible that medications and things we need for our health can be so out of reach...
I am just disgusted with healthcare and the price of stuff. It is so out of hand.
This is my rant for today!
