I looked in to this a while back and it would never be worth the effort for me. I have NO out of pocket medical expenses (my job gives us a health care credit card with a generous amount of money every year) and so this would never work out to anything. I would just be calculating and saving receipts for nothing.

Seems like a ton of work for a little payback. Especially since I'm just intolerant.

I read the article and it made sense that the amount of work it would take for the minimal amount of money you would get back if you even exceeded the amount required to deduct anything does not look very beneficial. It was good to read this though. Thanks for sharing.

I don't. What a nightmare in receipt tracking (meds, supplements, too). :-P

I came across an article which might help SOMEone decide if it's right for them:
