I had to fill a script for doxycycline today. It's a tier 1 generic so @>250 bucks for 6 grams, a mild dose for a one month course seemed odd. Since I was paying, the pharmacist noticed the charge and was shocked. Oddly, those involved in the trade are unaware that "we" have a sole source of precursors required for its production that is compromised. It is hard to get a good take on this as, appearently, the FDA has been de-fanged over the years. But the consequences will be real...

I am tired of freaks and want governance from our government. And yes, the structural ground work for this predates the ACA.
