We have generic Zoloft God bless America

If you're wondering about the title, it comes from a Molly Ivins misquote of a Walgreen's sign in Austin not long after 9/11:

Anyway, so I was excited to hear that my drug of choice, Zoloft, had gone generic recently. With my crappy health plan (nonetheless the best available to me in this state with the insurance monopoly), I have been paying almost full price for Zoloft every month. So I thought, oh good, now I'll have substantial savings. Wrong. I save a grand total of eleven bucks with the generic. So next time the insurance companies try to claim that the reason rates are so high is because people refuse to use generics, tell them to go fuck themselves. Actually, tell them that no matter what.
