I have schizophrenia and I've been on the same medication since 1997. The drug came out in 1997 at $300 for a months supply 30 pills $10 a pill.
The drug manufacturer Eli Lilly kept the drug at $300 for 15 years.
After 15 years the patent expired so generics could be made.
Eli Lilly owns the rights to the generic and non generic. They make both.
When they started making the generic they rose the price of the generic to $600 a month and the non generic to $900.
It's criminal if you ask me.
