Good point about
the heat and the pills in the mailbox. But I still get mail order.
For me it always depended on who the pharmacy benefits provdier through my employer was. I used Medco, then switched jobs and now have Caremark. The last time I sent in an order by mail, however, they claimed they never got it and I basically ran out of pills and had to go to my GI for samples until they finally sent them
It should be cheaper (less copay) for mail order 90 day supply. They switched me to generic colazal without asking, and the copay went from (if i can remember) $70 to $20.
