Cheaper drugs, Save money on your prescriptions

Cheaper drugs, save money on prescription drugs Pharmaceutical drugs are expensive. If you are a senior in the United States you have prescription drug insurance BUT if you reach the 'doughnut hole" where you are responsible for the cost of your prescriptions, you may be finding it difficult to 'make ends meet'.

If you want to spend less on drugs, there are a number of things you can do.

First, you need to to explain your economic situation to your health care provider.

  1. The cost of brand name prescription drugs can often be lowered by using a generic equivalent. Ask your health care provider if the drug being prescribed comes in a generic form.
  2. Sometimes an older version of a brand name drug may be effective AND less expensive than the one a company is currently marketing to health care providers. Ask!

There is a company that allows you to SEARCH FOR LESS EXPENSIVE DRUGS. I have spoken with them and asked if I could provide you with their free service of checking to find if there is a lower cost alternative to any prescription drug.

That same company also compares drug prices among pharmacies. If you are paying for your own prescriptions, it might be worth taking some of them to a different pharmacy in order to save money. Ideally, it is better to have ALL prescriptions filled at the same pharmacy. That way the pharmacist can make sure there are no conflicts among the drugs you are taking. BUT if you are finding it hard to pay for your prescriptions, it might be better to find a pharmacy with Cheaper drugs that to stop getting your prescriptions filled.

If you want to find a drug store or pharmacy in your area that is selling your prescription for the LOWEST COST, you can do that. It is sometimes surprising how big a difference there can be between pharmacies. And it is not always the big discount store that has the Chaeper drugs.

This company covers zip codes in the United States, I am not sure about Canada, Europe etc.

Search for the store with the lowest prices for any prescription drug. Go to Zip code directory of lowest prices
