What dose of Lioresal did your doctor prescribe? It seems as if your doc definitely got the price wrong:

The generic of lioresal (Bio-Baclofen) would cost you between R150 and R180 for 30 of the 10mg tablets, where the original (Lioresal) would set you back R300-400 for 30 of the 10mg tabs and R550-700 for 30 of the 25 mg tabs.

The prices may differ from pharmacy to pharmacy, but should genersally fall within the ranges gives.
