    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.

    Believe it or not, you can save BIG bucks at the drugstore around the corner (some prescription, some generic and some of both, depending upon the pharmacy) if you just do a little homework?

    Costco Member Prescription Program ? offers a discount on all branded and generic prescription medications. Members (and their dependents) who have no prescription drug coverage available are eligible to join.

    The CVS/Pharmacy Health Savings Pass allows you to pay only $9.99 for a 90 day supply of your generic prescription.

    Target?s FREE Prescription Discount Card saves you up to 80% on Target?s generic medications and up to 15% on Target?s name brand prescriptions.

    Walgreens Prescription Savings Club has over 400 generics priced at $12 for a 90-day supply.

    Walmart and Sam?s Club offer you ?special negotiated pricing on prescription drugs? with their Prescription Drug Program. (Sounds kind of fishy to me.)

    And the RxSavingsPlus is a free drug/prescription discount card, to help lower the price for medication. It can be used at CVS Pharmacy, Target, Rite Aid and 60,000 participating pharmacies nationwide. And offers an average of 20% off the retail price of drugs. (Kind of skimpy, but one-stop shopping.)

One of the medications offered is Lamictal which I have been on for about 3 years now. Every transaction I have done has been quick and hasslefree. This program has been QUITE the lifesaver
