Rx retail prices are all over the place. Three ways to save:

1)/www.goodrx.com/ -*This is not a joke, I have know people who used this at "normal" retail pharmacies.

2)I've used walgreens discount club for cash, non-insurance Rx payment discounts. $20 a year and it saved me $150 per year on thyroid med alone vs my insurance Rx payment. Tells you how much mark up there is, LOL. Sick people getting screwed.

3)Canada online pharmacies. Look for the accredited ones. Dr faxes Rx, you pay with credit card- downside, it can take 1-2 weeks for shipping. Same brands sometimes for less because prices are jacked up in the US.

Some pharmacies will give you a discount if your are a AAA member. I even can get a discount at the UPS store with my AAA membership.

I really have to wonder what the benefit to the pharma is accepting it. Why is it so easy just to discount meds? How are they making the $ back?

And in the Walgreens club, I pay $20 to Walgreens and then they lose $150 from me for the next year. - thats just on my thyroid med.

There's something obviously going on with Rx $. Its not like other products just drop in price this much with some generic coupon.

That is something that I have wondered about for a while now! Not sure how or why they agree to such a contract. On the other hand, get it while you can!

I tried Good Rx at walgreens this spring and they did not recognize it, even though it worked on the Good Rx site for prices. I see there is a Ph# for the pharmacy to call- which I did not try.

I'll see if Walmart accepts it.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again but also with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / repairing / fine tuning since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Hashimotos adds to the enjoyment.

I have used goodrx to fill at several different pharmacies from grocery store ones to cvs and Walgreens. I like how it shows pricing for each one

It has always saved me close to 40% off retail or so

I don't accept Good Rx. My margins are too low as it is.
