Prescription Drugs

Save money on prescription drugs by using a mail order company and ordering a 3 month supply for drugs you use on a regular basis. 

Also check with your local pharmacies to see if they will match mail order prices.  Prescription drug prices have gotten very competitive, and many retailers have implemented programs and prices similar to mail order companies.

Always ask your doctor for a generic drug, and if your medication can be cut in half and if it will be thrift friendly to cut a larger dose in half.  For new prescriptions, ask your doctor for samples, in case there are side effects.

If you live near Canada or Mexico, you may  be able to buy meds there at a lower price.
