    Don't get too angry. The drug for that boiling blood condition has just increased in price by 150%.

    Why can't something be done to put a stop to some of this? The ONE time the government should intervene and doesn't or can't. Is there not a law against price gouging? I guess not.

    Virginia, I'm sure there is, but someone has to call their attention to it. I nominate Virginia.

    Several sayings come to mind.

    hello to all of us who need meds. to keep us alive. Recently One of my Drs. gave me a script. for Phenergan suposatories (?) I think the # was for 6. When Ken went to drug store they told him he may not want them when told the price.

    Well, they were right. They were over a 1,000 for 6. When talked to Dr. he didn't have a clue as to why they were so high. He gave me a Script for Phenergan tablets and they were less than 5.00 for 30 I think. So far I have done ok with the tablets ,but even if I couldn't keep them down there was no way we could afford to pay over a 1,000 for that script.

    Another one of my meds. had more than doubled ((nearly 400.$$ just last week)) When you try to get answers nobody is talking. I take a lot of meds., but guess I will be leaving some off. Mostly for blood pressure and COPD a few other things.

    Right now I have so many loose ends on medical issue's my blood didn't start boiling. It has been boiling for several years and that is why my BP is so high and I can't get it down.

    OK, now I will stop growling, somebody might hear me and figure out how to increase something else and there will be no more

    Julia left to complain.
