It is more expensive than GOLD (30daysX80mg for about $135 at Target). One oz (28.5g)would cost $1603. The gold price is about 1200/oz. The package is lousy, for a such expensive medication. I expect not to get loose pills in an open container. I DO EXPECT A FACTORY SEALED PACKAGE!!!!AND A LOWER PRICE! Last night, I refused an open container of 100 pills and they promised one for Monday and I tried to buy my medication for three days until they will provide a factory sealed container of 100 pills, but they wanted to charge me $20.99 for three pills of 0.080g and that means $2,400.00 per oz (28.5g) or reported to gold it is twice the price of gold (approx. $1,200/oz). I tried other generics, but were not good for me.
