More good news about drugs!

I found out about this over at Hestia Homeschool.

Free antibiotics at all 176 Meijer pharmacies throughout the Midwest.

We don't have those pharmacies here.  But for those of you who do, be sure to take advantage.  Click HERE for a store locator. 

Gee, this reminds me of the old gas wars the filling stations used to have.  Only now we have prescription drug price wars.

I read your read your earlier entry about the $4.00 meds. thru WalMart. I was sad to see that the state of Maine was not included. Our % of those over 65 is high in our state and the income is low. These people could really use a break in their costs of meds. So many are goimg without needed medications, because they cannot afford them. It is such a shame. I am happy for all of you in the mid-west.

Once the drug companies have lost their exclusive patent on a drug and the generics are available, they become really inexpensive. It seems like the right thing to do, doesn't it?

I am waiting, patienly or impatiently for cheaper medications in our state.  My monthly medications are now costing more than $800 a month.  I fell into a medicare "donut hole" which means I must now pay full price for my medications.  Blessings, Penny

In reaction to a commercial he saw this am, Bubba said "I wish the American people would pay our electric bill."  I said you know, if the government did pay everyone's electric bill, it is possible that then everyone could afford health insurance.  - Any time someone is perscribed a new medicine that is too expensive on them, they should check directly with the manufacturer.  Many do have reduced pricing for people with low income, just don't always make it very public knowledge.  -  Barbara
