Re: [IP] NYC endo

I agree on the evaluation -- Zofran works much better.  I currently pay 25%
of the cost and that is equal to over $3 per pill here -- or $12 without the
insurance.  It does make you stop and think before using them, but if it
means going to work or not, that is a small cost.
Take care,
