Prescription Cost Differences

It pays to shop around for prescriptions, especially if you're footing the entire bill.

Consumer reports researchers called 163 pharmacies nationwide to check prices on four prescription drugs.

They found differences of almost $200 for the same prescription in some cases, and different prices at different locations of the same drugstore chain.

    "... and different prices at different locations of the same drugstore chain." Michelle I don't think this is the drug makers fault. When the same drugstore chain sells the same medicine at different prices I think the pharmacy is to blame, not the drug maker.

    This is another reason why America is going broke. GREED! The drug makers should be arrested for stealing from the people who buy the medicines.It's a shame this is what the world is coming to.
