Last year, Life Extension magazine did a search of offshore chemical synthesizers that supply the active ingredients found in drugs approved by the FDA, based on the idea that a significant percentage of drugs sold in the United States contain active ingredients made in other countries. They obtained the actual price of active ingredients used in some of the most popular drugs sold in America.  The chart below tells the story for some psychoactive drugs.
