Thanks for the article. This seems to be the predictable result of a larger pool of unemployed people coupled with companies losing money-the budgets of states are shrinking (due to reduced tax revenues) and insurance companies are trying to cut benefits to improve the profitability of the companies. Many of the newly laid off workers are mentally ill people. So, this aggravates the problem with the states even further. If the *cost* of polypharmacy wasn't so high-perhaps we wouldn't see this. So, this ultimately is winding up on the pharmaceutical companies doorstep. Now, that the states are probably not going to pay the bill-would it be in the better interest of the drug companies and patients to negotiate some substantial price cut agreements with the states??? Interesting to see how this pans out.
