Dramatic Increases in the Cost of Drugs and Nutrients

In both the Senate and House of Representatives, there have been recent inquiries about drug companies that buy the rights to produce critical drugs and then greatly increase the price.  Turing Pharmaceuticals recently increased the price of Daraprim, which is the only drug approved for severe toxoplasmosis infections, by 5000%.  Complementary physicians can treat many diseases with high dose IV nutrients such as vitamins C and B-complex.  However, nutrient supply companies are also gouging the public.  Vitamin C for IV treatment recently jumped up from $13 to $65 with no explanation.  It might be a good time to send a note of concern to our elected officials.
