In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
Eeegads is right! I was just dx with shingles and the doctor wrote two prescriptions...one .09 ounce tube of an antiviral cream was $217. (that's half the size of my little finger) I told the pharmacist I couldn't afford it and she researched her data base and found a generic gel that was only $67. Off course, they didn't have any in stock so it is being ordered...in the mean time I'm using OTC Abreva for the blisters. Doctors have nooooooo clue. I told my dermatologist that I didn't have health/prescription insurance and we were on a fixed income. I guess $217 for one prescription isn't expensive in his world. I find pharmacists are more willing to help you find a drug you can afford then most doctors...maybe he/she can suggest an alternative.
