It sucks because there's not a generic yet for the medication that really does help my migraines...so, because there's no generic, my insurance makes me pay 30% of the cost (rather than the $10 flat cost for generic drugs). I think this is unfair because no generic even EXISTS and I've tried to explain this to my insurance company, but they're not having it.

So the 50$ is only 30% of the full prize of the original? Or?

I could about generics and originals, but I think I'll just - it is my job, after all!

Yes, the $50 is 30% of the original--so imagine if I didn't have insurance...like many, many people in this country...

s to everyone for the good wishes

I think I've started to feel the pain breaking up a bit; Jillian (co-worker) gave me 2 Excedrins, and maybe they're beginning to help.

Merc, if you want to PM me your thoughts on the drug industry (as the Octagon expert on pharmacy), I'd definitely be interested to hear what you have to say.

I'm far, far from expert in anything, really...

...not yet, anyway!


I'm just always over the things I learn, what I hear...

Maybe I'll send you a pm later tonight...

That sucks pax. I hate the big pharmaceutical companies, they are rip-offs.
