Heads up for HT patients,
Merck's patent on the osteoperosis drug Fosamax will expire tomorrow, and the generics are ready to roll out. Those who are on hormone therapy may pay less very soon. With my insurance I pay $30.00 for Fosamax and $10.00 for generics. So I will save $20.00 per month. Those without the insurance will save much more. Story is available on most business web pages.
