The price of prescription drugs in the United States is obnoxiously high. Just today, I was pricing out a topical medication for toenail fungus and the cost for a 4ml bottle was over $500. Really?  Doxycycline, which cost $5 for 100 pills 2 years ago, was almost $200. I can’t imagine what some people are paying for their heart medication.

An easy way to save money on prescriptions is to look for coupons at Just type in the prescription that you are looking for and your zip code, and will provide you a list of options. Just print out your coupon and take it to the pharmacy. It is that simple. The savings on many prescriptions can be quite substantial, while others minimal.  Hey, it only takes 30 seconds and it is worth a try.
