Yep! They're expensive. And that's cheap compared to the price of some medication.
I remember having to give a patient some medication by IV and the medication was something like $2,000.00 per injection!!
My hand shook when I took the ampule out of the medication dispenser and drew up the medication, lol I forget why she was receiving it (maybe Rheumatoid Arthritis), but she needed it every 4 weeks and came to the hospital to have it administered. Our Provincial Government picked up the tab via our Pharmacare Program. Otherwise I doubt she would have been able to get it.
Some of my inhalers are outrageous. I'm thankful that I don't need them very often. One of them is nearly $200.00, and if I had to take it daily I would be needing a new one every single month.
There are other medications for migraines. Has the doctor tried giving you any of those to see if they work for you? Also, is there a generic medication version of the one you got? When you pay that high price it's because of the brand name
I usually try and get the generic equivalent, and if the doctor hasn't stated it, I ask the pharmacist for the generic kind because they are often 75% cheaper!
