Sharing Meds

In another of the vagaries of the US healthcare system, if you and your wife both need the same med, it's cheaper to get one prescription at double strength than two at the 'right' dosage. The cheapest free market solution (buying in bulk and mixing your own) is, of course, out of the question because it would severely impact the profitability of the pharmacist.

Legal monopolies suck.
