    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Few Tips:

    See if you can get a generic that is on that list of 300 or so drugs available at Wal*Mart for $4.00 or so for a 30-day supply. Target and Fred Myers chains also have the same program. Check that list and see if any medication you take is on it, and get yours transferred there if it would be cheaper. Also, don't be shy about printing out the list and asking your doctor about it.

    Check out the pharmacy at CostCo, a warehouse store which can buy in bulk so their prescription prices are very low. You do not have to be a CostCo member to use their pharmacy.

    For dental help, check with your state's dental licensing board for options, as well as any local dental colleges.
