I've had to turn down multiple prescriptions because I couldn't afford them. I'm still stunned by how doctors prescribe things there's no chance in hell their patient can pay for.

From $100 a tube creams to several hundred dollar/month meds.

As a pharmacist, I used to give free talks to seniors or anyone interested on how to speak to your doctor to make sure you were getting less expensive medications, and how to find less expensive alternatives for what you already take.
