Prescription drug pricing wtf: Compared to last month, this month I got 50% more milligrams of an antidepressant, but had to pay 200% more money. The only difference is the pills were smaller, and so there were more of them. I don't understand what's going on here. [more inside]

Zyflo is a drug that makes my nose and lungs work better. It's currently ridiculously expensive, but the patent's running out. How can I find out when someone will make it generic? [more inside]

I know that when medicine expires or is no longer needed, the best way to dispose of it is to take it to a local pharmacy with a disposal program and hand it off to them to take care of it.
But that gets me to wondering - then what? [more inside]

I recently increased my dosage of lamictal from 100mg/day to 200mg/day. I was prescribed 100mg pills, whereas before I had 25mg pills. For a month's supply of 100mg/daily in 25mg units, the bill sent to my insurance was over $500. For 200mg in 100mg units, it was just under $300.
Why would more of the active ingredient cost less? I know the difference in pill count can't account for that much of a differential. What's the creative economics here?
