Does anyone use Walmart for medications?

May 14th, 2009 at 07:55 pm

Hello guys and gals!!!
I currently use the Walgreens right next to my apartment to fill up my 1 prescription medication. They're women pills, so I refill them each month (you get what I'm talking about right?)...Well, I keep seeing these Walamrt pharmacy commericals explaining that you can get most non name brand prescriptions for $4. I currently pay $10/month. Just curious if anyone has uses Walmart for their meds. Any good or bad experiences would help me make a decisons on if I should switch...

    I don't currently have any prescriptions or experience with Walmart, but I would think if you prescription qualifies, it could be worth the savings. Unless you have to drive far or tend to buy more when you shop at Walmart!!!

    There are a lot of drugs on the $4 walmart list, but not EVERYTHING, so I'd check on that first. If it is on the list, I'd check with your current pharmacy...I'm sure Walgreen's matches Walmart's price.

    If your current medication isn't on the list, you can ask your doctor to switch to a comparable medication that is.

    Walmart's prescription list is available on their website: http://i.walmartimages.com/i/if/hmp/fusion/customer_list.pdf
    Unfortunately, I suspect what you take (if on the list) would fall in the $9 per month category. There may not be much savings for you there at all.

    I don't personally get meds at Wal-Mart, but I constantly send my patients there. Their $4 generic plan has saved people zillions of dollars. ktmarvels is correct, though. Not all generics are on the plan. Just certain ones, about 300 or so I believe. Go to the website and check if your med is on the list.

    If your med is not on the list, give their pharmacy a call anyway and check the price. They are cheaper on lots of drugs, not just the ones on the $4 plan.

    I use them for anything I can get for $4. Or even better, I get a prescription for 3 months and pay just $10. Like others said, not everything is on the list, but it's easy to check the list online and then double check with them.

    Walmart's push into offering generics medicine is a huge corporate initiative, and for both investors as well as us little people who need generics, I really hope this works out!
