  • Cymbalta and Vytorin $45 each. My insurance covers the others and I pay like $10 per script - but these two they won't.

  • On vacation once my son developed an abscess. After lancing it the Drs put him on a very powerful antibiotic named Chloromycetin. The only pharmacy in town did not accpet Tri-care and we had to pay for the entire script out of pocket. $ 356 and this was in 1992

  • $55 for birth control and $80 for Ritalin (generic at that). So glad that I have insurance now and only pay at most $5 a month for meds.
