Who says that French doctors overprescribe medication?
11 boxes is normal, right?
I went to the doctor for help with my winter depression, fatigue and insomnia. That cost me 55 € just to see him, of which I’ll probably be reimbursed about 20 €. Then I went to the pharmacy to get the prescriptions, which totaled 67 €. Only one of those boxes above was reimbursed by la sécu and it cost less than 4 € in the first place. Health insurance is good in France, but sometimes it sure isn’t cheap.
