This is NOT the drug companies fault, but nurses and patients should be aware.
By the way. We had a nursing assistant who was terminated because she had cancer. She could not afford the COBRA plan as it was about 1/4 her disability check and she had two kids.
She died in my unit at the facility where she worked for 24 years.
Sorry I think she WAS deserving of affordable medication as much as the drug company multi millionaires!
PS: I use generics. Patients have to take what their doctor prescribes and often are too sick to think of asking for a lower cost med. MDs too do not think of it.
Do you think the senior whose retirement was all in the stock market should be able to afford the meds they may need?
The joke goes, "Take with food! How? If I buy food I can't buy the medicine."
Glad you have the "privilege" of continuing to breathe.
