What To Do About The High Cost Of Prescriptions
LAS VEGAS - Sept. 20, 2022 - PRLog -- The cost of prescription drugs has never been higher. In fact, recent years have seen price increases of as much as 10 percent. If you are among the 55 percent of Americans that are taking a prescription drug, you may be concerned about the affordability of medication therapy. Fortunately, there are a couple of things that you can do to ease the financial burden.

Talk to Your Doctor
As the cost of prescription drugs continue to rise, more and more patients, even those with health insurance, are neglecting to fill their prescriptions. Oftentimes, people don't tell their doctors that the cost of their prescription drugs is high on their list of concerns. Perhaps even more troubling is that many people don't tell their doctor they're not taking the medication that was prescribed. Rather than seeking out a less expensive alternative to a pricey prescription drug, too many patients opt out of the medication therapy that they need.

Unless your doctor knows that your ability to follow through with your treatment plan is contingent on the affordability of a medication, they can't work with you to find options that won't place a strain on your wallet. You should explain to your doctor that you cannot afford the medication. How will he/she know you cannot afford your medication if you don't tell them? Your doctor will most likely have options available to prescribe something much less expensive for you. Speak up and advocate for yourself! Don't be embarrassed, prescription drugs are expensive!!
