Trick of the trade: Discounted medications at pharmacies

Many times, patients who we deem as “noncompliant” with medications may actually be financially unable to afford medications that we prescribe them. Thanks to Amy Kinard, I just learned about this great new website where you can find pharmacies with amazing discounts for common medications.

I went to Walmart and Target myself to see if this was indeed true, because frankly I couldn’t believe the amazing deals. For example, you can get 20 tablets of ciprofloxacin (500 mg tabs) for only $4.


Download the list of eligible medications and the price list from:

Even more cool is that fact that this same information can be found in a free iPhone app called Generics. Now you can refer patients to the most affordable pharmacy (see below).
