I am frustrated with the comments of patients asking for perscriptions even when they dont need them. It seems that doctors are just as guilty. My Grandmother was perscribed medication from her doctor, which would cost her anywhere from $10 to $200 in co-pays only to have the doctor decide a week later that that medication was not what was needed and would perscribe something else. After her death she had BOXES of medication that she had only used for a week or two and was told not to take any longer. This cost medicare and seniors a huge amount of money that they can not afford. I am now seeing the same trend in my parents medications.
