I was not told that the R/X that was being called in to my pharmacy was outrageously expensive. when I was told the cost at the pharmacy, I cancelled the R/X!

I just regret that I did not ask her for a RX for breathing difficulties. Have been very ill for 2 weeks. By the time I got to my regular doctor I was very ill. It is my fault!
