I called my local pharmacy to find out the cost of Emsam-$552.79 for a box of 30 patches (i.e.$18.42/day)!!!!!!! And you apparently can't buy it in quantities of less than 30; so no way to try it and see if you tolerate it. And of course, I'll pay, even though the chance of my being able to tolerate it (I don't do well with stimulating meds), let alone it working are probably one in a million. I certainly would never put down that kind of money at a roulette table, but these greedy drug companies know that depression hurts so bad, we'll pay anything for the remote possibility of help. I'm not sure how they're really any different ethically than a heroin dealer....Not that I have a clue how much heroin or any other illegal drug costs, and $552 is nothing compared to all the money I wasted on useless therapy. but it still seems outrageous...Cecilia
