Robbery. 14 year patent protection should have kept this drug around 20k a year. All MS drugs are overpriced for their efficacy. How much will the upcoming drugs that may reverse the damage cost? 150k 200k a year? Where is the limit? I believe Pharma should be paid, but this is robbery. Just how much did it cost them not to have MS, Lupus, RA, etc? So glad the government is trying to protect me from guns and gay marriage instead of things I can't provide my own protection against.
