The reality of rising prescription prices and unfilled prescriptions
The Dermatologist. 2017.
One major concern in treatment of psoriasis is the cost of the treatment method. Between 2009 and 2015, prices of dermatologic products increased by 401% for brand names and 279% for generics. Often, patients with psoriasis will need a combination of products, which will only increase their medication costs. Discovering and utilizing less expensive options is important in order to avoid patients leaving prescriptions unfilled.
