A CURE FOR DRUG PRICES?

What can you do to control drug prices?

> control any lifestyle conditions such as obesity which may be contributing to your hypertension and/or diabetes and, diet.
> make sure you actually need a medication and, that it works for you without side­ effects. Many medicines have side effects and as well, are effective in only 75­-80% of patients.
> ask your doctor to prescribe generics only, if possible. Generics are available for prostate cancer.
> see if there are any over-­the-­counter (OTC) equivalents that may function as a substitute.
> shop around, negotiate and compare prices online. Far too many drugs require a prescription and many of these drugs should be available OTC as they are in many parts of the world. You should lobby your congressman to make this happen.
