Canada's drug tab reaches $22 billion, report suggests


SHERYL UBELACKER, CP   2005-04-06 04:01:17  



TORONTO -- Canadians' propensity for popping pills to fix what ails them continues to rise, with the country's 2004 drug tab estimated at almost $22 billion, up about nine per cent from a year earlier and five times the amount spent 20 years ago, a report released yesterday suggests. And that $22 billion doesn't even include drugs prescribed in hospitals, which adds another $1.3 billion to the bill, said the Canadian Institute for Health Information report.
