Hello. : Hello. The cost for some medications is rather outrageous. I recommend talking to your pharmacist and your medical provider. First ask if there is a generic alternative that can be used, as these tend to cost much, much less. If there is not a generic medication, ask about close alternatives that don't cost as much. Just these two things alone would likely help to save a lot of money. Take care.
