How much are spending on supplements and medication a month?


I've just been going through my accounts and realised that I am spending considerably more than I thought on supplements. I'm starting to wonder if I've got a little carried away and spending unnecessarily...

Thanks, I'll give a breakdown of my spending when I have a little more time!

Best wishes, Abe
