Darus has been taking Lamictal since September 2016.  He had a bad reaction to the generic form of the drug and since then, he's had to have the brand name.  Surmounting this task on a monthly basis, is something I loathe about being a special needs mom.  The amount of time/money/energy that I put into getting my kid the medication he needs is astounding.  The retail price for a one month's supply is $2,689.99.  Thankfully, we have insurance and MediCal, but it is still very troublesome.

We need single-payer healthcare here in the US.
