By the time I was 16 I was found to have a staghorn kidney stone (cystinuria). I was not aware of having stones until that time. I have been taking cupermine and baking soda, and when I went to get my prescription filled, the price had gone to USD 4,388.00 for 60 pills. Insurance does not want to pay this and I am down to just a few pills and can't afford to pay.
