Many prescriptions are available in generic form at a cost of only $4.00 each at Wal-Mart or Target.A complete list of these medications is available at the office or at the website for these companies.
For medications that you take on a long-term basis and the dosage has not changed for some time, consider obtaining a 90 or 100 day supply either through a mail-order pharmacy or buying in bulk at either Sam's Club or Costco.You do not have to be a member to access the pharmacy at these stores. Many generic medications may be obtained in bulk for a very small amount.
Consider buying a pill splitter and obtain a prescription if it is available for a dose that is twice which you normally take. Then use the pill splitter at the beginning of the month to divide all the pills to arrive at the correct dose. Be sure to check with your pharmacist to find out if it is okay to split pills.
