I have three prescriptions that are $5 dollars each and one is $76. That is with health insurance. Without health insurance the $76 dollar one would cost me $246 every month and the other ones aroun $30 each.
I am very lucky with my health, and fortunately have not had to spens anything on medicines of any form for a very long time unless you count small items bought to restock my first aid kits.
I like to think that I have done almost everything possible to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and that it has paid off in the long run.
Alcohol consumption is the only area that I have from time to time exceeded the recommended healthy limits, but to the best of my knowledge it has done me no harm so far.
Come to think of it my Malt Whisky is a sort of medicine, and it is widely believed that if you could only find exactly the right amount to drink you would live a healthy life for ever. [ Whisky from Scottish Gaelic "usque beatha " meaning "water of life" ] Perhaps I had better not say how much I spend on this medicine.

About 5 to 20 € if I or my husband have the flu or any other seasonal sickness. But It can happen that I don't buy meds for an entire year if we aren't sick.
We have public health insurance in my country - means everyone is insured and we pay depending on our income. Which is currently 240€ per month for my complete family (2 adults 2 kids). Children get prescribed medication for free.
if i was over 16 i would have to pay £21.30 well more than that because its gone up,but im lucky becuase im under 16 the NHS pays it for me
but for my mom she pays £35.50 a month for the 4 boxes of tables she needs. the prescription fee is £7.10 i think its too expensive for those that need multiple things like my mom.
yeah, thank god for health ins.!! I have this really expensive stuff for my back. It would cost $1587.00 without insurance!! That REALLY makes me upset when the elderly get raked over the coals on stuff like that!! Those poor people have to live on such a limited income in the first place.
Fortunately the only Medical condition I have is Pernicious anemia, so I have to take B12 daily. I use to pay about $10 a month for the liquid B12/needle, but recently got changed to pills, so now it only about $5 a month. : )
Luckily I don't have to regularly purchase any prescription medications. The only money, I spend in this department is for my vitamins and naturopathic remedies, which probably cost me only about $20 (CDN) per month.
For myself alone, I spend 5-10 dollars for suplement, like vit C. For my whole family, I pay 50 dollars for health insurance.
