PS: Scandle, I believed the doctor but I can also imagine that top promotors/prescribers may get some kind of special treatment. I know that it used to happen all the time. For example, the pharmaceutical company might pay for medical training for 5 days in Hawaii with short a brief presentation. I think that is very rare if not non-existent now.

I did ask the doctor's office. They said that they thought it was easiest since I'd already left the office. There is no difference except that I would have to take two small capsules into of one. The prescription was $21.63 for 20 while the regular supplements were $6 or $7 for 180.

I often think that doctors are just oblivious to the cost of a medication. I was given a round of medicine that cost more than $700. When I told the doctor, he was floored.

This is a lesson learned, just like what I learned about shipping. Check everything every which way.

We know a lot of doctors and never have they said they got a kickback from drug companies for writing prescriptions. That simply isn't the way it works. Drug companies used to wine and dine doctors while educating them about their products, and that, added to the various items with their drug name on them (mugs, notepads, pens, etc.) acts to encourage doctors to prescribe those meds when given several similar ones to choose from. Pharmacies do not collude with doctors, either, or set up a special reporting service that gets back to the drug companies.

DD, I've no idea why your doctor subscribed something different for you than what your husband is getting. Why don't you ask your doctor's office or your pharmacist what the difference is between the meds? More info should help.

I tried to order two bookshelves from Ikea. Shipping was quoted at $349, so I called. Surely there was a cheaper way.

Ordering them separately results in a big savings. They only cost $58 each to ship. Each bookcase is split into three boxes so that the weight of each box stays under 50 lbs. so I don't understand the huge penalty for orders that weigh over 200 lbs. I'm glad that I called to find a less expensive way even though I got to ride the hold and transfer carousel for several hours.

I thought that they did get a cut but I said something to the doctor and his mouth dropped and he said that he gets nothing. Getting a cut is illegal, but I suppose that there are ways around that.

My doctor called in some prescriptions for me. One of those was vitamin D. My husband said that his doctor recommended that he supplement too. I picked up both vitamins. It appears that the only difference is my vitamins are twice the strength and 25 times the price. Is there any reason that the Doctor would call in the prescription rather than tell me to take two vitamin D capsules per day?
