When you get a prescription, ask if there’s a generic version.
Once you have the prescription, check with a few local pharmacies to see which one can offer you the best price.
If you’re getting an ongoing prescription, ask for a 90-day prescription you can use for a mail-order pharmacy.
Trips to space are exciting. Trips to the pharmacy, not so much. Get 90-day supplies of your prescriptions sent right to your home by using a mail-order pharmacy.
Generic drugs are made with the same active ingredients as brand-name drugs, but with a probable side effect of saving you a lot of money. Ask your doctor if a generic equivalent is an option.
Shopping around might save you money
