“The Doxycycline Disaster:
Doxycycline is a tetracycline-type antibiotic. It was approved under the brand name Vibramycin in 1967. It has been a mainstay in the treatment of a wide diversity of infections for decades. It is prescribed for urinary tract infections, upper respiratory tract infections, chlamydia, cholera, Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. This drug used to be really affordable. One pill could cost as little as 6 cents. In recent years, this old generic drug jumped to as much as $3.65 per pill. That is a 6,000 percent increase! That, in our opinion, is highway robbery.”

On the contrary, Mino costs 30 dollars for 10 pills (= 5 days of use). Personally I can’t afford that. 180 dollars is 1/3 of a GOOD Ukrainian monthly salary (good if a person doesn’t live in Kyiv). On top of that we have no insurance.
