FORT MYERS, Fla. — The White House says Americans pay 2 to 3 times more than people in other countries, and says 1 in 4 of us struggle to pay for them.
Dr. Shadreka McIntosh owns Sozo Wellnes Pharmacy in Fort Myers.
She says medication for diabetes, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, and chemotherapy are in high demand and expensive.
Her recommendations include the following:
- Ask your pharmacy about any available in-house discount programs
- Ask about a generic version of your medication
- Check out the website: www.needymeds.org
- Connect with pharmacies that work with non-profits and medication donation programs
