73% Average Savings Potential At International Online Pharmacies Compared to U.S. Pharmacy Drug Prices

During the same period, U.S. pharmacy prices increased by 7% to 24%, or an average 15% excluding Prevacid which dropped in price due to generic competition (Table 2). The increase in U.S. prices is consistent with figures recently reported by AARP.
