4. I had no idea that medications cost so much.

I am 63 years old and have never been on a prescription medication.

I just received an advertiser from a Canadian pharmacy. It lists prices in the United States compared with the Canadian generic price.

Some of the costs for these medications are incredible. 100 tablets of Abilify cost over $2000 in the US. The generic from Canada costs $200.

Does most people's insurance cover these medication costs? And if not how can anybody afford to take these drugs?

This makes any kind of investment in healthy lifestyle a good investment.
