Your suggestion of asikng your doctor to prescribe a generic form of the medication is an excellent point. My mother is required to pay $85 for a 30-day supply of one medication. I urged her to get the doctor to switch to a generic product. She's a little reluctant to inquire about alternative products. As soon as I can, I will accompany her to the doctor's office.
