Judge, please change your decision. I, too, am a retiree and paying the high cost for my Evista. Considering our economic situation, a cheaper generic drug would really make the budget be more attainable. Please reconsider........

This is quite sad because many people are dependent on generic drugs due to the rising costs of everything. However, things like this must also happen because if not blocked, it can cause many dangerous side effects. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fe...

I agree with all of the above. My company just changed our health insurance provider and I now have to pay over $90 for 30 days worth of Evista, which is really a hardship as I get paid 50% of my salary at the moment. The actual cost at Walgreen's without a prescription plan is over $160. I read that Lilly made over $1 billion last year on Evista sales. You'd think by now they would give us a break! I would be interested in getting my prescriptions from Canada. Does anyone know how you do that?
I buy my Evista from Planet Drugs Direct. The name brand comes from Turkey but what can i do? I am not paying $400 a month in the US, I'm sorry! I might even get the Genetic fm them. My osteoporosis doctor sais in 2-3 years there will be a new drug out that will put all of these to shame. For the meantime I'm buying Evista from Canada.

HELP...2014 is just around the corner and I am still paying more than $2000 a year for my Evista.

When will the robber barons from Ely Lily stop plundering ?
