I could not agree with you more about
this issue, drug companies are out of control with the price of their meds, they can be because they know that patients need their meds, and they work with the insurance companies to make sure we pay for them. So kudos to you for voicing your aggrevation.
Having said that, Humira is the only Rx that is working for me so I have to keep using it...luckily my co-pay is $50, I know it could be way higher. I have to keep using this medicine, I know that I am contributing to the problem but I'm between a rock and a hard place.
Can I just tell everyone reading this to please, please, please vote in this years elections, research the candidates and their platforms and vote for whomever you think will fight for the issues you are most concerned about
VOTE, VOTE, VOTE-MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
Take care to everyone!
