How much should prescription drugs cost?
A recent article in the New York Times sheds light on a trend within the pharmaceutical industry - sky high price increases with little justification except profit. The drug featured in the article at first primarily treated infantile spasms, but has since been marketed for other such uses as MS attacks and rheumatologic conditions. The article offers an extensive history of the drug and gets one thinking about some important questions about prescription drugs. How much should drugs cost? Who should pay for them? In figuring out what drug works best for you, should you consider price? It's a great read and something that everyone in the MS community should be talking about.
