Sometimes, of course, a person has to spend a considerable u m on medicine particularly n the case of a long-drawn-out illness. But, individually, prescriptions generally cost relatively little, especially in view ot the good :hey can do. Study Made After some rather sensational c h a r g e s about drug profits a few months ago, the Pharma ceutical Manufacturers Association made a study o! the entire matter. The Association is a voluntary, non-profit professional and trade organization of manufacturers of Pharmaceuticals which can be made available usually only on the presentation of a doctor's presciiptkm. Average Prices The Association reports that the average price to the patient of a prescription in the United Slates s about $3. More than 60.5 per cent of all prescriptions were $3 and under. Only about one in 100 Descriptions cost 03 much as $10. Of course, that comes to quite a sum when you consider that 711,- Bfl.OOO prescriptions were filled during all of 1959. Survey Findings Still, each of us spent an average of only about $15 for pres- riptkm drugs during all of 1958. During that same year, the average person spent $30 on tobacco, 53 on alcholic beverages and S14 or storing, servicing and repair- ng of cars. Just a few years ago, the average person probably couldn't lave afforded to buy the benefits received from the drugs he bought with that $15 in 1958. Costs Dropped For example, back in 1M3, one irm charged $100 for every 100.- WO units of penicillin. By 19-10, the price had dropped to $-1.76, and in J956. it was only 22.2 cents per 100,000 units. Cortisone initially cost $200 per gram. By 1957, the cost has been cut to $2 per gram. Yet, many of us undoubtedly screamed about this price as too high when we picked up our last cortisone prescription. Synthesized Vitamins Another example is the synthe- sization of vitamins. A single vitamin B-l tablet of 100 mg. costs about fi cents. Before this vitamin was synthesized, the same dose would require the consumption of 1,500 brewer's yeast tablets at a cost of about S2.50. So let me ask you--do you think drugs cost loo much? Question and Answer Mrs. D. Z.: Does pregnancy ever cause a loss of hearing? Answer: In some instances, pregnancy may caase the deafness due to one type of ear disease called otosclerosis to become worse. In no case would to:al deafness occur.
