Sorry for this, but when I click on new thread, nothing happens, so I'm just posting this on an existing thread. If someone can tell me how to open a new thread, I'd be grateful.

Anyway: I picked up a scrip for parnate today (90 pills) and was charged $97.50. I called the benefits manager and, it seems my company now has a $100 deductible for medications, which was why paid full price. Sucks, but okay.

My question is - how does a scrip for 90 10mg parnate pills cost $97.50 before insurance? This is like - what - a 50 -60 year old generic drug? How do people even manage without good insurance? When I was told the price (but before I called the insurance company), I realized that I couldn't continue taking this drug if I had to pay almost $100/month, even though parnate is the only anti-depressant that has ever worked consistently for me. I make okay money, but $100/month is still a lot. What about people who make less than me?

It made me sick. Insurance has protected me for years from the reality of drug prices.
