Over The Counter DrugsAnother less expensive alternative that many people don't consider is that it may be possible to substitute over-the-counter drugs for your current prescription medication in some cases. More and more medications that were once only available with a prescription are now available over the counter in weaker strengths than their prescription counterparts.
If you are taking a medication that is available over-the-counter, but need a prescription due to needing a stronger dosage, discuss with your doctor if switching to over-the-counter drugs is possible.
Due to the different way over-the-counter drugs are marketed, they are usually a fraction of the price of the same medication that needs a prescription to be dispensed. If your doctor feels making the switch is possible, it can result in prescription medication savings of more than 50% of what you're currently paying.
