@oklagramma - We each have to be our own #1 advocate, and especially if the cost is coming out of our own pocket! Have you talked to your doctor about diet & lifestyle changes you can make, to improve your health without these medications? It might be more effort for you, but healthier in the long run; most doctors are bombarded by pharmaceutical sales reps, pushing their products, so their first step when someone isn't well is to push a prescription medication on them, instead of having a serious & thorough discussion about diet, exercise & other lifestyle choices.

 @EdwardMcCormick - Thanks for finding & posting those links!

 

@AARPLynne - You created this discussion, and despite multiple posts by people telling you they couldn't use the link you included, it's almost 3 weeks later, and you didn't fix it! If you want to create real conversations here, how about responding to people's feedback?!

We finally had to speak to our doctor when our supplement, SS deductible, and co-pays (in the donut hole) reached $1,864. for one month with Rx coming the next month totalling $1500. the next month (2 diabetes meds costing $900. each retail and a med for me costing $200. (These were all 90 day drugs but still super hard on the budget.  Our doctor is trying other things but so far it appears we need the exact meds we were getting.  He was aghast and ignorant of these costs.  Perhaps the doctors will come to our defense with the drug companies.
