I have insurance but honestly, sometimes no insurance is better!! Some things I've learned:

Meijer (a grocery store generally in the midwest) has FREE antibiotics. Not ALL antibiotics are free...but some of them. As well as free generic lipitor (i hear but have not verified)

Walmart- not ALL generics are $4. So sick of hearing people think that. However, there are quite a few maintenance drugs on the $4 list. And like article mentioned, get the 90 day to save a little bit more.

Generic lexapro- shocked to see it at $7 at costco. That is incredible. Unfortunately i dnt have a a costco membership. But Ive been getting it for $16 at walmart with one of those discount cards: http://goo.gl/Jbeag

Simvastatin - This one seems to vary WIDELY...even at the same chain pharmacy. I know the walmart by me has it for $15 whether u get 30 or 90 day (weird but true) but another walmart charges like $30. If its not the $15, try the discount card.

Also, if you DO have insurance, make sure you aren't paying more because of it! I know one insurance company that charges $35 for generics...regardless of price! So if its only a $4 prescription, you will still have to pay the $35.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#ydnb for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. W-PHARMACY .COM is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
