- Savings Over 70% Are Easily Found with Free, Online Resources -

White Plains, N.Y., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- With one-quarter of Americans paying out-of-pocket to fill prescriptions, and with those ranks likely to grow in coming months, published "Safe Strategies for Drug Savings" today on its site at By shopping online at verified pharmacies in the U.S., Canada, and other countries as well, PharmacyChecker shows that Americans can save over 72% on brand name medications and a similar amount on generic drugs.

The free, five-page report shows that Lipitor (20 mg), for example, which costs $451 for a three-month supply at a regular U.S. pharmacy, is available for as low as $124 at a non-U.S. online pharmacy found on -- a savings of 73%. Consumers who prefer to buy from U.S. pharmacies can find this drug from a PharmacyChecker-verified U.S. online pharmacy for $369, a discount of 17%.

The report notes that generic drug programs by large retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target are often a great option for saving on some generic drugs, as many are available for just $4 for a one-month supply and $10 for a three-month supply. But many generics are not covered in these programs and the best prices on these products are found at wholesale pharmacies operating online. For example, one hundred pills of simvastatin (40 mg), the generic version of the cholesterol-reducer Zocor, costs $210 at a traditional pharmacy, $49.54 at a Wal-Mart, but only $10.44 at a wholesale pharmacy found on -- a 95% savings.

Five key factors are cited in the report as contributing to the current availability of safe, lower cost drug options for all Americans: 1) lower prices on brand name drugs in Canada and other countries, 2) a highly competitive pharmacy market for generic drugs in the U.S., 3) U.S. policy that does not stop individuals from importing drugs for personal use, 4) ease of finding and comparing drug prices on the Internet, and 5) independent pharmacy verifiers like that identify licensed and legitimate pharmacies. The report also discusses government- and pharmaceutical-sponsored programs that provide savings based on qualifying need or membership fees.

"The bottom line is that any American with access to the Internet can easily cut his or her drug costs by half or more using safe and simple strategies," said Dr. Tod Cooperman, MD, president of
