In reply to Zyprexa with Effexor, posted by kirbyw on May 4, 2012, at 8:18:04
Zyprexa is readily available in Costa Rica. 14 5 mg tablets cost the equivalent of about $60 in private pharmacies. Its not available in the public health care system which is free (meds and treatment) for any citizen or legal resident. Its a pity that only six psychotropic meds are available here in the public sector; Risperdal, Prozac, Effexor, Rivotril, Tegretol, and one other which I can't think of. Many, many people cannot afford prices charged for other meds that they would have to buy privately. So they do without. There is a lot TRD that goes unattended and people just suffer.
