Need Help Affording Your Meds? LegitScript Adds Patient Assistance Feature
Date:11/8/2010

PORTLAND, Oregon, Nov. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading Internet pharmacy verification service offers a new message for patients: There are ways to get affordable medicines without using unregulated, potentially dangerous "rogue" Internet pharmacies.
