    I use CVS, it is the only one that I don't have to go out of my way to get to.

    K-mart. The Pharmacist there used to be at a local drug store until it closed then went to K-mart. We have used him as a Pharmacist for along time. For me it's not the store or chain it is the Pharmacist. :type:

    I use Walgreen's for most of our prescriptions, but I use walmart for the generics that can be gotten for $4. Our Generic co-pay is $15 so that's a $9 savings per scrip. Unfortunately our family has a lot of prescriptions.

    Your generic copay is 15? Gads! I have a generic and it is less than what my co pay on that tier, so I get it for free, praise Jesus. Another drug I take, since it is a generic and is an important med, my insurance pays the full amount jus tso that I will take it. Wow.

    What's the difference between "I get them through mail order." and "I use mail order"?

    We use Medco which is really a blessing from God. I take a 7 pill cocktail every morning followed by nose sprays and pills throughout the day. Medco gives you a 90 day supply which saved me lots of loot... :jesus:

    Then there is my Stratera which only comes in name brand (no generic)...

    Hubby gets his through Medco (via mail).

    I get mine from Krogers. Generic co-pay $4.00. Name Brand co-pay $10.00.

    All mine comes from the VA - $8 for any prescription, unless it is for my service connected disability - then there is no charge

    Though the other day, my doctor told me to start taking an aspirin a day - did not write me a precrip, because it would be cheaper to get them at a drug store.
