    Thanks MyOak. It amazes me that the older drugs (CRAB) are more expensive than some of the newer medications that have a higher efficacy rate. I guess part of it is the number of doses needed for injection schedule.

      It makes me feel embarrassed to see this and realize how much of a drain I am on society. I wish our government would find a way to make changes that result in more reasonable costs for medication and treatment.

        Jules, Please don't feel this way. The pharmaceutical makers on MyOak's list should be embarrassed.

        Also note that 30 days from now this price list will be obsolete. ...and the band played on.

          I don't use any DMT, but Jer makes a good point here.

            There are drains on society all over the place. Your needs are just a bit more "tangible." You sound like a responsible person who may be far less of a drain than some others who seem squeaky clean on paper. Keep on truckin'

                The site also shows how much US costs are so that other countries can have the same drug at a huge "discount". My insurance coverage pays for about 75% of the listed price. Wouldn't it be more fair if the drug prices were the same regardless of where a patient lived or what insurance coverage they had? Just saying!

                  Great but loaded, question. The comparison country, the UK, has public healthcare for all. Everyone pays into it, so costs can be lower. That will never fly in the US.

                    Thanks gals and guys. I appreciate your kind words. I'm just kind of worn out by MS related angst which never seems to end.

                      What makes it a "loaded" question? I'm just having a dumb day. I don't understand

                        Oh I agree with you that it would be great if there was a way that drug prices were universally set. TOTALLY agree. It just gets into so many geopolitical and domestic policy topics.

                        Lets keep a good thought

                          Ditto.

                          Yeah, there are many drains on society. But, as I age and my MS progresses, I wonder whether my $86,000 med is even effective anymore.
