When a drug costs 30 times what it once did
Los Angeles Times

Diane Shattuck filled a prescription in December for a generic antibiotic called doxycycline. With insurance, she paid $4.30 for 60 pills at a CVS store in Orange.

She returned at the end of February to refill her prescription. This time, she was told her cost for the drug would be about $165.

“It was bizarre,” Shattuck, 73, told me. “And no one at CVS could explain why the price was so high.”
