Cost of medicine a serious concern

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — I had to have an E.G.D. and colonoscopy and asked for prep pills because I have a weak stomach, but went to pick them up at the drugstore and the cost was $142.

Now I am near 70 and I have Medicare, and cannot afford $140. So I asked for a substitute and was subscribed a gallon of awful stuff that made me throw up. Please tell me why there is not something wrong with this picture?
