    I say let's bark in our own manufacture prescription drugs as a country so we don't have to deal with private company that will cut down the calls over 100% it may not seem feasible but if in America we have some of the greatest. Are some of the greatest scientist and chemist is no reason that we cannot instead of producing a generic brand make America's own brand that would eliminate the use of having to use one's company I'm in general that would be a cost-effective you should not have to choose between having medicine to live versus being able to afford to eat versus having a roof over your head this is totally unfair to us as US citizensπŸ€πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ€“πŸ˜‘πŸ˜ͺπŸ€‘πŸ€“πŸ€₯πŸ˜‡πŸ€“πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€.

    I'm glad I moved to Europe 20+ years ago. Under universal healthcare ALL our meds cost about 6-7 dollars (6.10€).

    Do derivatives, chirals/isomers, etc. deserve FULL patent protection.... πŸ€” Probably not, and can be quite profitable yet more affordable! πŸ˜ŽβœŒοΈπŸ‘

      I totally agree many of the medicines shouldn't be patting it some I can agree should be but when it is something that is in need for cancer when it is something that is in need for Aids HIV hepatitis bad hearts defective long kidneys colon issues know you shouldn't have a pet because once you have a patent on it you get to control the drug price and those that don't agree with it all it takes is for your child your mother your father your grandparents your sister or brother husband wife whomever get violently ill and yet can't afford the medication because it's $10,000 or is 3000 even $1,000 that is not fair and it is not right.πŸ˜ͺπŸ€₯πŸ˜‡πŸ€“πŸ€πŸ€”πŸ˜πŸ˜ΆπŸ―πŸ…πŸ†πŸ¦πŸ˜‘πŸ˜ͺ🀠.
