Now 90-day prescriptions for $10 - Plus More Women's Health Medications
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting March 1, 2009, D&W Fresh Market, Family Fare and VG's pharmacies will expand their generic drug program to 90-day prescriptions for only $10 - now there are two programs offering lower prices on over 300 generic drugs to meet the healthcare needs and healthcare budgets of our customers. These pharmacies are also increasing the number of women's health medications as part of the generic drug program offer.
This new initiative expands the program introduced in November 2008 that provides a $4 price for more than 300 generic drugs prescribed in 30-day supplies. It also complements several other programs these stores are offering customers to help them stretch their food, fuel, healthcare and household budgets, including:
"Our expanded generic drug program is another example of the many ways we are making it easier for customers to stretch their food, healthcare, and household dollars," said Alan Hartline, Executive Vice President Merchandising. "Our customers can continue to rely on the expert health counsel and friendly service our team of professional pharmacists consistently offer."
Expanded Women's Health Generics
D&W Fresh Market, Family Fare and VG's Pharmacies are also increasing the number of women's health medications they offer at the discounted price. These include prescription drugs such as tamoxifen to treat breast cancer and pre-natal vitamins.

Generic vs. Name Brand
Generic drugs are a less expensive alternative to name-brand drugs. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), requires that all drugs be safe and effective. Since generics use the same active ingredients and are shown to work the same way in the body, they have the same risks and benefits as their brand-name counterparts. After a company's exclusive right to market a medication expires, other companies are allowed to develop generic equivalents - usually at a much lower cost. Consumers interested in saving money on prescriptions should ask their doctor or pharmacist at their neighborhood D&W Fresh Market, Family Fare and VG's to determine if a generic drug is available for their prescription and if it is right for them. A list of the 10 D&W Pharmacies, 15 Family Fare Pharmacies and 14 VG's Food and Pharmacies listed below.
