Tips For Saving Money When Choosing Medication

Everyone has had that moment of contemplation when you are standing in the drug isle of your pharmacy wondering if you should purchase the Advil or its generic version.

Brand name products are so much more expensive than the generic options, but are they really worth spending the extra money? According to the FDA, the average cost of a generic drug is 80-85% less than the brand name version.

It is important to understand that generic versions are required to have the same active ingredients as the brand name; therefore they are not inferior products.

So why not save your money and start purchasing generic drugs? Around $3 million is saved every week due to generic drugs.  Our pharmacy at health services offers generic options and so does our local Rite Aid. 

 So don’t overpay for the name and start saving your money!
