I know the feeling. I have been going to the "world famous Mayo Clinic" (again, not necessarily my opinion)for my treatment, my docotor had me on 400mg of Dilantin, then a seizure popped its ugly head and I got into a car accident (now I am scared to drive ever again) he then put me on a gradual increase up to 1000mg of Keppra twice a day along with the Dilantin. He said he was going to wean me off the Dilantin (it has been 6 months since he said that and I am still on 400mg). I am still having seizures, so he is putting me up to 1500mg Keppra twice a day and still leaving me on the Dilantin. My medication alone is costing me $60 a month and that is with insurance (I know that don't seem expensive, but when you can't work, that is alot of money). I don't know what I am going to do if I am still not working when my COBRA plan on my health insurance from my former employer runs out if I still can't work because I happened to see the total cost for the Keppra one day and for the dosage I am on, it runs a total of over $450 for 1 month! Sometimes I wonder if doctors aren't getting a little cut from the pharmaceutical companies. What really sucks is my ex-wife worked for a veterinarian and they use alot of the same medications (not necessarily these two, but I have seen others) for animals and pay about 10-15% of the cost. IMO the government needs to step in and step in fast on drug cost.
