How Big Pharma is Robbing You Blind

If you’re taking a few prescription medications… like most seniors are… I don’t need to tell you how it eats into your budget.

And for lots of folks, it’s about to get worse.

Guess how much drug prices are going to go up this year?

Inflation averages about 2-3 percent a year… but drug prices are predicted to increase by a whopping 12 percent.

Drug prices have risen faster than inflation for the past 16 years and are bleeding you dry of cash.

And it’s all due to a massive SCAM being run by the drug companies. Let me show you what to do about it. 

There’s one big reason why drug prices are skyrocketing.

In this free-market economy we’re so proud of, prescription drugs are somehow exempt.

We’ve basically set up a system where they have no competition.

Generics were supposed to bring prices down… but now drug companies have found a way around that, too.  

Remember the EpiPen price increase last year? It got the CEO in a lot of trouble. That was the generic version of the drug (and it was supposed to be cheaper).

Drug companies have learned that they don’t want competition and are now simply paying generic maker to keep their products off the shelves (or to keep them unaffordable). This works for both companies: both make money.

But, of course, you lose.

Drug companies are also making minor tweaks to old formulas and claiming new patents–which the government and FDA are only too happy to provide them.

That way, their drugs never go “off patent” and the prices never come down.

There are a couple things you can do to help yourself:

  1. If you’re taking a drug that’s difficult to afford, talk to your doctor. There may be no generic for the drug (that’s happening more and more). But there may be an alternative drug that DOES have a generic.
  1. Look into natural solutions like supplements that often work just as well… or better… than prescription drugs. In fact, lots of prescription drugs are basically synthetic copies of natural substances.

If your doc won’t talk to you about natural alternatives, find one who will.

P.S. Never quit a drug cold-turkey! Many drugs are powerful and take time (and you must talk to your doctor) should you decide to stop them. Don’t quit any drugs quickly–the results can be very harmful and more dangerous than a disease.
