Anyone have any idea what's causing the price to skyrocket?
If you can explain it without using the word, "greed", you get extra points.
I've had Lyme disease three times and, because I'm at Ground Zero for Lyme Disease, (That's Lyme, Connecticut, in case you're wondering about the name.), I like to have a small stash of Doxycycline around as a prophylactic. (If you find a tick on you, you can quickly take one dose of 200 mg, two tablets, and prevent 5 of the 6 possible cases you might have got. Finding a tick on you does not at all mean that you're likely to get Lyme disease.)
So I go to pick up my little stash at Walgreens and was hit by sticker shock.
"Allina Health pharmacies have seen the price of a 500-count bottle of 100 milligram doxycycline shoot up by nearly 1,000 percent,"
What's going on?
""If you look at what they've told the FDA, it's basically a non-explanation explanation," he said. "I don't think anybody knows why it's actually in short supply. That doesn't mean necessarily that it's something nefarious, but I wish we had a better explanation of what's going on."
