Help us cover the political revolution: http://www.patreon.com/TYTNation "Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer raised prices on about 100 drugs this week, the second round of increases for the company this year. Overall, many of the drugs’ prices have increased by double-digit percentages this year, according to Ars Technica. The Financial Times first reported the price hike. Among the drugs who have seen price hikes are Viagra, the erectile dysfunction drug, and Norvasc blood pressure pills. The increased prices come amid heightened focus from lawmakers on drug prices." http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/395483-pfizer-hikes-prices-on-dozens-of-drugs Shop at Amazon & support TYT Nation! http://ow.ly/LAKHU Like Our Facebook Page! http://www.Facebook.com/TYTNation Subscribe to our Network Partner: The Young Turks. http://www.youtube.com/theyoungturks http://www.tytnetwork.com

As a pharmacy technician, the most common problem I'm seeing, is how high prices are for name brand prescriptions reaching as high as $2000 for a 30 day supply. And it doesn't stop there! A lot of prescription insurances will either cover a very small amount of the price or not cover it at all if it's name brand. And that's a shame because there isn't any generic brand alternatives for some name brands that a patient needs. And then I got to listen to patients giving me shit, like it's my fault they can't afford it, because their medication costs too much and their insurance company is too greedy! I'm surrounded by arrogance!!!

WE OWN A COMMUNITY PHARMACY AND THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE PHARMACEUTICAL BENEFIT MANAGERS. THE PHARMACEUTICAL BENEFIT MANAGERS.KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE PAY FOR THE DRUGS, AND THEY TAKE EVERY PENNY OF THAT. WHY? BECAUSE THEY CAN. GOVERNMENT COULD FORCE TRANSPARENCY BUT MONEY CAN BUY ANYTHING. MONEY IS EXACTLY WHAT KEEPS THE PHARMACEUTICAL BENEFIT MANAGERS EXACTLY WHERE THEY ARE ... IN SOMEBODY'S POCKET. MY SENATOR SAID THEY WOULD TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING. I'M SURPRISED THAT OUR PRESIDENT HAS ALLOWED THIS. THIS WILL BE HIS ONE BIG FAILED PROMISE. WE DID NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING FROM THE "TAX CUTS". I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE ARE SAYING THE ECONOMY IS SO GREAT BECAUSE WE ARE MAKING NO PROFITS. I BELIEVED IN THE PRESIDENT AS SO MANY GREAT THINGS WERE SUPPOSEDLY HAPPENING. WE HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY ASSISTANCE FROM THE GOVERNMENT BUT IT HAS TAKEN US A LIFETIME TO BUILD OUR BUSINESS AND ONLY A SHORT TIME FOR THE PHARMACEUTICAL BENEFIT MANAGERS TO TAKE IT ALL, IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THEY CAN SPEND A YEARLY SALARY OF OVER A BILLION DOLLARS. THEY OBVIOUSLY HAVE NO SOULS OR THEY COULD NOT SLEEP AT ALL. I HOPE THEY ENJOY OUR MONEY BECAUSE WE WILL HAVE WORKED 50 YEARS FOR NOTHING.

medicine is like any other product in capitalism. That is why it should not be just a product for which desperate people are forced to pay in order to live.

Republican or Democrat they are all on the payroll of big Pharma and come November you will vote the same people in. All the three drugs mentioned are generic in Canada and we pay about 70% less for them. Why. Because when you have publicly funded health care and the government is handing out the cash they negotiate the best price possible. Inexpensive medication and no bill when you leave the doctors office or hospital Please spare me the bad medical care crap. When they thought I might have cancer I was lying in a MRI machine 10 hours later.

Pfft who cares. I REFUSE to take prescription drugs other than antibiotics. The side effects are often worse than whatever they are supposed to treat.

David Laurie - Of course you have the attitude of a teenager ... "pffft who cares?" However, when it does affect your sorry ass ( and it will) you'll be the first one to be in the comment section, whining and crying, as you usually are.

Fiona. Only when absolutely necessary. I am fully aware of the issues with evolution of antibiotic -resisitant bacterial strains.
Fiona Corliss (5 месяцев назад)
David Laurie better make sure you are not taking too many antibiotics unnecessarily or for issues that shouldn’t be treated with them. Honestly taking in as little antibiotics as you can throughout your lifetime is the best thing you can do.

Drumpf goes to negotiate lower drug prices with pharma executives & in less than an hour, they have him bent over like a bítch! Way to go "master negotiator"! More like "master bater" because all he´s done is "bate" the public!

Pfiser´s Viagra 100mg =sildenafil in generic, goes for as low as $3.26 dollars/tablet in Mexico. The same medication in 50mg can go as low as $15.52 dollars for a box of 20 tablets.

C*ck rings are WAY cheaper.

As a general rule, the co-payment for medicine(that only applies in the U.S.), is enough to buy the TOTAL amount of the medication in other countries.
Steve Bulbow MD (5 месяцев назад)
Pregabaline in generic( Pfiser´s Lyrica) 150mg goes for $7-8 dollars box with 28 capsules in Mexico. Chantix 1mg(in U.S.) & name brand in Mexico(Champix by Pfiser), goes for about $110 dollars a box with 60 tablets. This last one is the best in the market for curbing nicotine withdrawal. Just left these stats for comparison, to see how the U.S. healthcare & insurance screws it´s citizens.
Steve Bulbow MD (5 месяцев назад)
@rationalguy: Because nicotine patches continue the nicotine addiction. This medication is NOT nicotine based & it blocks nicotine receptors, thus eliminating nicotine withdrawal.
rationalguy (5 месяцев назад)
I just used nicotine patches. It was fairly easy. Why use that expensive crap.
