The Laughingstock of the Pharmacy Bloggers

I went to the doctor a few weeks ago about some severe headaches I've been having. Apparently they are migraines.

Anyway, she wrote me a prescription for ... wait for it ... Treximet!

I have to admit that the first thought that went through my mind was, "Oh god, the doctor/pharmacy bloggers are gonna have my ass!"

I think it works fine, I just don't think it's necessary.

My view is that it's just cheaper to get generic Imitrex and Naprosyn in 2 separate pills, than to take 1 overpriced Treximet tablet.

Grumpy is right; get 2 separate generic pills and save a fortune.

I wrote about these patent extending tactics on my blog. It's called "evergreening," and it's disgusting.

I completely agree with both of you. I don't think I was clear with my original post. I've edited it and gotten straight to my point. Thank you both for commenting, and thank you Nick for the link, I will definitely check it out.
