WHY ARE DRUGS SO EXPENSIVE?

American Drug Companies & You

With more and more prescription medications on the market, many people are saying they simply cannot afford what doctors are prescribing. Is this how you feel? Some analysts believe it’s because of:

  • Monopoly pricing
  • Incentives for doctors and pharmacists to select more expensive brands
  • High research and development costs
  • Price gouging
  • Putting profits ahead of patients

Come and learn about what is really happening and what it means for you and your family.
