Choose two prescription drugs that have a generic available. Next Choose one pharmacy from each of the 5 different types listed below:
Large chain pharmacy such as Walgreens, CVS, Eckards, etc.
Grocery store associate pharmacy such as Publix, Krogers, etc.
Privately owned local pharmacy
Pharmacy associated with a big box store such as Target, Walmart, etc.
Online pharmacy (must be in the United States)
Do not use any drugs on the pharmacys four dollar or other special price list. If the pharmacy has a club card or other special way of getting lower cost, do not use this cost.
Compare the cash cost of the brand and the generic making sure that the dose (milligrams, micrograms, etc.) and number of pills are the same.
