I have pretty good insurance, and I order the meds I take regularly through mail order...comes out to about $45/month in prescriptions. Then my probiotics, which are not covered are costing me about $100/month. Then various supplements, about $30/month. Grand total = $175/month, but it fluctuates as I add or drop supplements, or reduce my probiotic intake. Close to more than I can afford, but definitely above what I want to afford!
