Drug manufacturers price gouging?

June 22nd, 2015 ·No Comments

I have take a certain medicine for 40 years. It was on Wal-Mart’s $4 list and so I didn’t use insurance. Now, Wal-Mart cannot offer it for that price, but rather wanted to charge $183. Why, because the drug manufacturer’s have raised the price – a lot. I am going to cite an article HERE about another drug that has been affected. It is digoxin and has been around since 1785. In the article, you will read how profits soared for the manufacturer and how an 85 year old lady went from spending  $1.15 for a three-month supply to $30 dollars for one month.

Why, it’s almost like getting someone hooked on drugs at corner by the schoolyard.
