Curious about..... My son needed a prescription and with insurance right now we have a pretty high deductable so it cost us $40 to fill it. The thing I really don't understand is that this morning I gave him the last of the dosage, but I still have at least 3 days left of medicine.

So, I spend $40 for a prescription that I don't even use all of?? I don't understand why? If you are in pharmacy or know something about this, please tell me what's going on. Is the medicine really that expensive to make, then why do you give me more than I need. If not, I think someone is making good $ from all of us that get more medicine than we need.

As a side note....how do you tell someone that they should finish the prescription, but yet they have more than we need to take? Just looking at these 2 bottles that I now need to throw away, sure makes me wonder what we are teaching ourselves and others to do.

Sorry, I just wish I understood what we really are supposed to do. I will throw out these bottles, but I can't help but wonder if my son should actually be finishing it off.....
Ain't no need to watch where I'm going, just need to know where I've been.
