“Prescription drug prices can vary widely depending on where you buy them, even for generics,” comments Mike Todasco, founder of Local Drug Search. “Before today, in order to find the best price for your prescription, you needed to call each of your local pharmacies, sit on hold, and wait for them to find and tell you the price. Now with LocalDrugSearch.com, you will find the best prices for the prescription drugs in your area within seconds,” adds Todasco.
The Local Drug Search website pulls information on over 2,000 prescription drugs from more than 40 major US pharmacies, including Walgreens CVS, RiteAid, Costco, Walmart, and Target. The site is easy to use. Go to LocalDrugSearch.com, enter your zip code and the name and dosage of your medication. Click the search button, and you'll see the best prices for prescription drugs at pharmacies near you. It is easy and it can save you money too.
A quick search on Local Drug Search finds that a woman purchasing birth control pills like Trinessa 28 in Boston, MA could save $267/year or 71% by switching to a different chain pharmacy. Or someone in Jacksonville, FL who takes 10 mg Lipitor tablets can save 25% by visiting another pharmacy in town.
"In tough economic times, it makes sense to search for the best prices for your medications, even if you have insurance," comments Mike Todasco. "Certain drugs may not be covered by all health plans, or you may be insured but find yourself in a ‘donut hole’, forced to pay for medications out-of-pocket. Sometimes, the cost of buying generics without insurance is much lower than the copay of buying drugs with insurance. Also, many insurance plans can require the consumer to pay a percentage of the drug cost, so it's important to keep costs low." Ultimately, Local Drug Search promises to save the average family hundreds of dollars a year with a few simple clicks.
Local Drug Search is launching today in Beta and will continue to build out the website in the coming months by adding more prescription drugs, more pharmacies, and more ways for its users to save money, such as with coupons and discount plans.
