This blog post talked about the expense of medication and how this contributes to medication not being taken properly (Johnson 2012).. Unfortunately, medication can be extremely expensive. Because of this patients do not take their medication correctly, they will skip doses, cut the pills in half, or just not take it. We are lucky to have some incredible medicine available to us but it comes at a cost. There again is the question of balance. I am not sure what the answer is. My son is currently on two medications and one of them is very expensive. If we did not have insurance, I am not sure we could afford it.
