People's Pharmacy has a provocative dialogue about why is Premarin so expensive?(http://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2016/03/21/why-is-the-cost-of-premarin-so-outrageous/?utm_source=The+People%27s+Pharmacy+Newsletter&utm_campaign=c0f4fc5df7-This-Week-Email+3%2F22%2F16&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_7300006d3c-c0f4fc5df7-220076609&ct=t(This_Week_1_26_161_25_2016)&mc_cid=c0f4fc5df7&mc_eid=2be8853d34).
Correspondents note they have to pay nearly $4 a pill for Premarin 0.625 mg. But the post gives a link to Pharmacy Checker.com which leads you to multiple sites that sell the same medicine for around 40 CENTS a pill, e.g. http://www.canadadrugcenter.com/search.asp?previous=1&txtSearch=Premarin
|Premarin (Conj. Estrogen)||0.625mg||84||$30.00|
What I have yet to see is an explanation/rationalization for drug prices, and why our politicians are not up in arms about why US consumers have to pay - in this case - ten times as much as in Canada.
