There are always alternatives to buying meds overseas; pill splitting, requesting free samples from your doctor, etc. A great way for consumers to save money is by using a free discount drug card. Over the past few years, these drug cards have really caught on. There are a lot of them out there, but the one I like is from - You can save a lot of money using a free discount drug card and atleast when you buy the meds from your local pharmacy, you won't have to wonder if they are quality meds or not. To print a free drug card, go here-

I have used 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.
