We know being sick or hurt is already hard. We want to get you feeling better faster, for as little as possible. Here are a few ways we help you save money at 501 Pharmacy.
Being Independent Pays
At 501 Pharmacy, we are able to keep our prices low by being a member of a buying group that negotiates pricing for independent pharmacies. Our prices are competitive and many times cheaper than other pharmacies including the big box retailers. At 501 Pharmacy, we don’t accept coupons because our prices are already so low that we usually beat the coupon price!
One way we help you save money is by providing a wide variety of generic drugs.
MedicineNet.com defines generic drugs as “copies of brand-name drugs that have exactly the same dosage, intended use, effects, side effects, route of administration, risks, safety, and strength as the original drug.”
Some people worry that generic drugs are not as safe as brand-name drugs, however, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) requires that generic drugs be as safe and effective as brand-name drugs.
The reason generic drugs are cheaper is that the manufacturers have not had the expenses of developing and marketing a new drug. The generic drugs go through all the same testing before they go on the market just like the brand-name drugs do.
To sum it up, generic drugs are just as safe and effective as the brand-name drugs but come at a much cheaper price. We can make recommendations for you to ensure you get the best medication and the best price.
