  • Let's hear it for Costco!! (This is just mind-boggling!) Make sure you read all the way past the list of the drugs. The woman that signed below is a Budget Analyst out of federal Washington , DC offices.


    Did you ever wonder how much it costs a drug company for the active ingredient in prescription medications? Some people think it must cost a lot, since many drugs sell for more than $2.00 per tablet. We did a search of offshore chemical synthesizers that supply the active ingredients found in drugs approved by the FDA. As we have revealed in past issues of Life Extension, a significant percentage of drugs sold in the United States contain active ingredients made in other countries. In our independent investigation of how much profit drug companies really make, we obtained the actual price of active ingredients used in some of the most popular drugs sold in America .


    The data below speaks for itself.





    Claritin: 100 mg
    Consumer Price (100 tablets): $215.17

    Since the cost of prescription drugs is so outrageous, I thought everyone should know about this. Please read the following and pass it on. It pays to shop around. This helps to solve the mystery as to why they can afford to put a Walgreen's on every corner. On Monday night, Steve Wilson, an investigative reporter for Channel 7 News in Detroit , did a story on generic drug price gouging by pharmacies. He found in his investigation, that some of these generic drugs were marked up as much as 3,000% or more. Yes, that's not a typo.....three thousand percent! So often, we blame the drug companies for the high cost of drugs, and usually rightfully so. But in this case, the fault clearly lies with the pharmacies themselves. For example, if you had to buy a prescription drug, and bought the name brand, you might pay $100 for 100 pills. The pharmacist might tell you that if you get the generic equivalent, they would only cost $80, making you think you are "saving" $20. What the pharmacist is not telling you is that those 100 generic pills may have only cost him $10!


    At the end of the report, one of the anchors asked Mr. Wilson whether or not there were any pharmacies that did not adhere to this practice, and he said that Costco consistently charged little over their cost for the generic drugs. 


    I went to the Costco site, where you can look up any drug, and get its online price. It says that the in-store prices are consistent with the online prices. I was appalled. Just to give you one example from my own experience, I had to use the drug, Compazine, which helps prevent nausea in chemo patients. 




    I used the generic equivalent, which cost $54.99 for 60 pills at CVS. I checked the price at Costco, and I could have bought 100 pills for $19.89. For 145 of my pain pills, I paid $72.57. I could have got 150 at Costco for $28.08.



    I would like to mention, that although Costco is a "membership" type store, you do NOT have to be a member to buy prescriptions there, as it is a federally regulated substance. You just tell them at the door that you wish to use the pharmacy, and they will let you in. (this is true)



    I went there this past Thursday and asked them. I am asking each of you to please help me by copying this letter, and passing it into your own e-mail, and send it to everyone you know with an e-mail address.

    Subject: Denzel Washington, and

             
    Brooks Army Medical Center


    Don't know whether you
    heard about this

    But
    Denzel Washington and his family visited

    The troops at
    Brook Army Medical Center , in

    San Antonio , Texas (BAMC) the other day. This

    Is where soldiers who have been evacuated from
    Germany come to be hospitalized in the United

    States, especially burn victims. There are some

    Buildings there called
    Fisher Houses. The Fisher

    House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay,

    For little or no charge, while their soldier is staying

    In the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses

    On base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled

    Most of the time.

    While
    Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave

    Him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how

    Much one of them would cost to build. He took his check

    Book out and wrote a check for the
    full amount right there

    On the spot.
    The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear

    This story and want to get the word out to the American

    Public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.


    The question I have is why does:


    Alec Baldwin,
       

    Madonna,


    Sean Penn
       and

    Other Hollywood types  


    Make front page news with their
    anti-everything

    America trash
    and Denzel Washington's Patriotism

    Doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of

    Any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San

    Antonio .

     





    A true American and friend to all in uniform!  


    GOD BLESS YOU DENZEL
    FOR YOUR PATRIOTISM

    Competition at Harrison Lake, B.C.
