Ask Your Doctor! Many doctors get paid by drug companies to push expensive brand-name medicines. When a doctor prescribes you a medicine, ask, “How much will this cost me?”, and “Is a generic equivalent available?” If the medicine is expensive, get a second opinion!
Buy Generics. When a generic medication is available, use it. They are just as safe and effective as name-brand medicines.
Wal-mart. For all their faults, Wal-mart is probably the best place to get affordable medicine. They offer automatic refills by mail on their website. They sell 30 day supplies of many medicines for only $4. Gotta give them credit where it’s due.
Free Savings Card I’ve been told that you can save money by using free prescription drug savings cards. You don’t need to provide any information or do anything besides print out a free card and bring it to your pharmacy.
