    I have not had insurance for ten years, and I'm in good company. It was recently in the news that 40% of U.S. population is now uninsured. I avoid doctors like the plague, was taking a couple of supplements, none at this time. I have pain, but nowhere near severe as many here, so over the counter as little as possible.

    I usually try not to think about everything I'm taking and all the doctor visits.Medi-cal pays for 6 meds a month.I try to stagger some with a 3 month supply.I just got curious. $8000 in ten months.How did you do it.No,I won't pry.It's all worth it for your son.Linda

    - he was/is worst off than me with many of the same symptoms but a whole lot more as well at only 16... now 18... hoping he turns a major corner soon!

    All the best,

    I HAVE TO PAY AROUND 100.00 FOR AMBIEN CR EVERY MONTH. I ALSO PAY 100.00 FOR WELLBUTRIN ERVERY MONTH. NOT COUNTING TRAMADOL, IT'S ABOUT 30 SOMETHING A MONTH. ALSO TAKE A BETA-BLOCKER,IT'S ABOUT 30 SOMETHING A MONTH. ALSO TAKE DARVOCETT N 100 AND TIZANADINE, I GET THEM FILLED ABOUT EVERY 2 MONTHS. THEY ALSO COST ABOUT 30 SOMETHING A PIECE. THIS REALLY ADDS UP. I DON'T SEE HOW THEY CAN CHARGE THIS MUCH AND GET AWAY WITH IT. I THINK I PAY THE PHARMACIES UTILITIES. LOL!!!
