Does anyone know any programs to get discounted meds. I did find one for Augmentin but they will only supply 10 days a month. If anyone knows where to buy Augmentin for a good price let me know. Thanks/

I have no rx insurance and this saves me a lot of money.

I believe Augmentin, which is a combo of amoxy & "clauvanate" is now available as a generic & is a whole lot cheaper than when it was only available in the name-brand (GlaxoSmithKline, formerly Beecham).

GO TO your nearest Hannaford's supermarket pharmacy, join what's called their Healthy saver ScriptSave program (only a few bucks).
I assume "Hanny's" is in NY? (If not, check other supermarkets that have in-store pharmacys.)

You'll be given a temporary paper membership card which you should keep in good shape (as the permanent plastic one takes forEver to show up in the mail).
Now that you're a "member", you can fill a 'script' for generic augmentin (typ. adult dose used is listed as:
'AMOX TR-K CLV 875-125 MG TAB'

Cost? A 60-tablet jar (They call it a "90-day supply") is UNDER $10!
Of course, they have smaller-dose tablets
(500-125 MG, 400-57 MG), but it's the same cost.

They'll fill whatever your doc prescribes...
well... within reason. [Wink]
It may be the '90-day supply' will, say, only last 45 days, depending on what dosages you're prescribed.

I'm not aware of any "limit" for this program.
The complete Rx list for these folks is downloadable as a 4-page .PDF file:
(hover over link, right click & "Save as..")
http://www.hannaford.com/assets/hf/assets/pdf/cms/pharmacy/drug_list.pdf

Hope this helps! [Big Grin]

P.S: As far as I'm aware, WallyWorld only has the straight amoxy on thier "$4 prescriptions list", not the 1 with clauvanate.

Costco, and Target have good prices on generic meds. And you don't have to be a Costco member to use their pharmacy.

Go to Bridges to Access for free Mepron, Augmentin, Ceftin. Go through the list of their medicines. You must not have insurance, and you have to meet eligibility requirements, you can read about that on the website.

The Partnership for Prescription Assistance offers a single point of access to more than 475 public and private patient assistance programs, including more than 180 programs offered by pharmaceutical companies

There is also

Good luck, I hope you find something that works for you

It may also be cheaper if you use a mail order pharmacy to purchase a 3mo supply. Typically you can get 3mo(mail away) for the price of 2mo(in store purchase). Check out Walmart's prices too.
