Safe, affordable medication

Safe, affordable medication

(NAPS)-As baby boomers are aging, some are joining the growing group of senior citizens on fixed incomes who often find themselves having to choose between filling their prescriptions or buying groceries.
The Problem
On average, Americans pay twice as much for prescription drugs compared to people in other industrialized countries. Those who take "maintenance medications" for conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol are often the hardest hit in the wallet.
As a result, millions of people order their prescriptions from licensed Canadian and international pharmacies. Congress and officials in the White House, however, may take away Americans' ability to locate medications online-even from trusted, reputable sources.
An Answer
"Everyone has the right to safe and affordable medications, and they have the right to choose where they purchase them," says Lee Graczyk, lead organizer for RxRights, a national coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to promoting and protecting American consumer access to sources of safe, affordable prescription drugs.
What You Can Do
Graczyk is encouraging Americans to take action now by sending a letter to their representatives on Capitol Hill and the White House to make their voices heard.
