I was talking to a dude at work and he was telling me his Insulin Increased to over $400 a month. He was hot, so I decided to take a peek and Jesus, it's not just insulin....it's everything.
Insulin...$187 per vial.
Couldn't you guys just buy your prescription drugs online from Canada our something?
Our even drive their, seems like it would still turn out cheaper than buying prescription drugs in the US.
Out of curiosity, I just looked up insulin at an online chemist and it says $126AU ($92US) for 5 vials.
One of the big questions for the company in recent quarters has been its expected pricing, and the company revealed during the conference call for the first time that Epidiolex will cost $32,500 per year on average, depending upon the weight of the patient and the dosing.

I wonder--is the patent on these drugs about to expire, and so they are milking the exclusivity of the drug production for all it's worth? Of course, that would be immoral if that's the case. I don't have time to do the research right now, otherwise I would provide the answer instead of asking the question.
