Sovaldi is horrifically expensive but it's also a novel and immensely valuable treatment.

With respect to bankrupting America, why are you guys putting all and sundry on $$$ Crestor when other countries reserve it only for those with severely elevated cholesterol resistant or intolerant to other statins.

Over here, generic atorvastatin (Lipitor) costs the health service little more than 1 to treat a patient for a month..... and this is a very effective and well-proven statin. Routinely using Crestor instead (rather than 2nd or 3rd line) would waste millions.

Don't even get me started on Nexium...
