Yes, Stan, that's true about therapeutic dosage. I tried to make that distinction in my orginal post suppylyng the data. I'm not sure how you'd go about finding or producing data which shows the costs of the minimally therapeutic units of each medication.

I was struck by the fact that higher cost (clearly of the newer agents) does not necessarily track higher efficacy.
