Cost of meds rant


I just need to rattle this off. I went to the neighboring country to get dental work because I can actually pay for it. I had to pick up some medicine for my son. It’s a 4.5g tube of cream. I paid about 7 dollars for it. Got three of them. As I was putting it away just now I saw printed on the side of the box “maximum price allowed” $185. And I was shocked. Then I remembered that in America the federal government GOT RID OF the “maximum price allowed” law. There is literally no limit. It makes me want to cry. I am so thankful I live close to the border. I wonder if there are doctors down there I could go to in addition to the dentist.

The medical system in America is super frightening for people not on public aid and not rich. Anyway, that’s my rant.
