Medtipster (www.medtipster.com) was developed to provide the public with a solution to the rising cost of healthcare. Using Medtipster’s proprietary technology, consumers simply type in their drug name, dosage and zip code, and instantly find prescription drugs available on discount generic programs, and where they can find them right in their own neighborhoods. Many of these drugs are available for $4 or less. Prescription drugs that are not on a discounted generic program often have therapeutic alternatives that are. The vast majority of all medical conditions can be treated with drugs available on one of the discount generic drug programs available on Medtipster. Headquartered in Troy, Mich., Medtipster is the brainchild of five Michigan executives, who combined their collective experience of 100 years in the pharmaceutical industry to provide Americans with substantial savings on their prescription drug and healthcare expenses.
