Cost-Saving Prescription Drug Tips: Just What the Doctor Ordered
Date:2/23/2009

Demonstrating its commitment to customer service, ApothecaryRx provides tips to help Minnesotans struggling financially afford their prescription drugs

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The economy is forcing many Minnesotans to make difficult choices to make ends meet, including foregoing the prescription medications they need to maintain their health and well being. Worried that some patients may be jeopardizing their health and, as a result, their future medical and financial security, ApothecaryRx, which owns and operates 18 community pharmacies throughout the Midwest, is sharing tips on how consumers can save money on their prescription drug costs.

"The faltering economy is affecting everyone differently, but no one should feel they must put their health at risk to makes ends meet," said Lewis P. Zeidner, founder, president and CEO of ApothecaryRx.

According to Zeidner, there are five simple ways that consumers can get their prescription drug costs under control.

  • Fill your prescriptions at an independent pharmacy. In general, independent pharmacies have lower over-head and operational costs than the major national chains, allowing them to charge between 10 - 18 percent less on commonly used medications.

  • Consult your physician about alternate drugs. Often an alternate medication can offer comparable efficacy at a lower price. Ask your physician if a lower-cost alternate medication is available and appropriate.

  • Participate in manufacturer discount programs. Many drug manufacturers offer discount drug programs for qualifying individuals that can provide significant discounts on their prescription drug costs. Because these programs can be difficult to navigate, ask your pharmacist to assist you in the process.'/>"/>
