44 pills a day
Most of the medications I take are for Mental Illness and Chronic Illnesses. I am blessed we have good insurance which covers most of the cost. There are two prescriptions that cost over $500 after coverage.
I don’t like to take pills and can only take one at a time which can take 10 minutes to get them all down. My granny was able to throw them in her hand and take them all at one time, I wish.
Drug Makers spend billions of dollars to get a drug to market, I understand business and know they have to recoup their cost, it’s not charity. I’m thankful drug makers are continuing to advance mental health medications. My life is truly better with medication. If you have difficulty paying for your medication contact the manufacturer directly to see if they have a savings program. My Lyrica is only $4 a month with the coupon my doctor gave me.
