    And if he did? I fail to see how my feeling is any of yours or his business.

    Even in Canada they're getting expensive.

    I was on antidepressants for awhile that cost me $165/month.

    My cousin has Raynaud's disease and was on a generic form of Viagra to try to increase blood flow to her fingers so she wouldn't have to get them amputated and she was paying about $2000/month.

    Luckily my lithium is only $22/month but I'm having to switch to something that will be quite a bit more expensive if I want to get pregnant again.

    My dad developed a degenerative disorder in May

    He has to take 5 meds a day and steroid shots once a week. His hands don't work so I have to do it.

    But I think it is basically all covered by his healthcare. He gets his needles for free, I know. Not sure about the rest.

    **** that sucks. I can't imagine...

    2000 bucks a month for medication just seems unnecessary. I'm kind of speechless.

    My effexor is around 35 bucks a month and my risperidone is about 30 bucks a month. It's not too bad.

    Oh ****. Effexor is so bruta. I was on it for a few months, it killed my emotions dead. Cold fish. Also killed my sex drive, girl I was seeing needed half an hour to get me going. Once it was up though, it wouldn’t go away, that part would have been cool if I’d been enjoying myself at all

    Oh Jesus, that sounds awful. Effexor has really helped me. I can't imagine feeling the way I did before I had it. It was debilitating

    It’s a strong drug, for me it was overkill

    My depression was caused by my immune system attacking my brain, guess it needed something different at least. Haven’t been on antidepressants for a while now and it got better

    I'm supposed to be on anti depressants but I cannot afford them so I have been off them for a while.

    I have medi-cal and medicaid, so I get my medicine for free but if I didn't, they would run me around 6 grand a month, lol. I had to go to the hospital one time and they were trying to charge me with around 50 grand but I went to arbitration and got my insurances to pay for it. :hearts:
