How to Save Money on Meds

October 22, 2009

If you usually traipse over to your local Rite Aid to get medications, you can easily save money.

Number one is to get generics where available.

Lamictal 200 mg 60 tablets $389.99
Lamotrigine 200 mg 60 tablets $323.14 :: cheaper

Number two is that your drugstore probably sells drugs online for at
least 10% lower than at your neighborhood store.

Number three is to buy larger pills and split them. If you took 100mg doses:

Lamictal 100mg 100 tabs $533.32 $5.33 per dose
Lamictal 200mg 60 tabs or
120 doses
$389.99 $3.25 per dose :: cheaper

Number four is to save by buying in bulk. Check before you order as it’s not a given.

60 tabs $389.99 $6.50 ea
180 tabs $1,138.09 $6.32 ea :: cheaper

Number five is to buy from overseas pharmacies, and remember they are NOT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
