If I get a prescription from a doctor for a medication I need, instead of paying $300 odd for the 30 day supply, could I just sign up with Wallmarts pharmacy and pay $4 for the 30 day supply? What is the drawback of this? What is a generic prescription of a drug?

Generic prescriptions enable patients to choose between essentially similar drugs on the basis of their price.
Seeing a doctor in order to get a prescription is always more expensive than using online pharmacies' services, so if you want to save money you can avoid face-to-face doctor consultations. I don't think there are any drawbacks here as long as specialists working for the pharmacy are competent enough.

Well, they wouldn't be as effective. The reason you are paying $300 is that your life may be on the line... vs going to the $4 one for those whose lives may not be. it's a Long-term and short-term thing you must look at. This is the fact my uncle is facing and now he is in a better condition than when he tried $4 generics. Just my observation. My reference to you would be USADrugClinic.com because of affordable pricing, fast delivery, and free shipping. So that is where my uncle gets his stuff and he's been happy. Hope this helped you!

I agree with you on this as having a face to face consultations with doctors can result in spending more for a particular prescription. However, I think it is essential that when we buy from online pharmacies, we do so from the ones that can do a proper follow-up on how better we feel and all that.

They are almost same, but there might be few drawbacks with cheaper drugs. Sometimes there might be long term side effects and conditions. But I do not agree that every cheaper drug is a low-grade drug, sometimes their effect and quality might be as same as the drug which is $200, the only difference is that the $200 drug has a well-recognized brand name and is well packed. If you are going in for a cheaper drug, always get advice from a professional person who knows about drugs, I guess the local pharmacist would be a good choice.

I make use of Walmart pharmacy offers per month and I save a lot of money doing so. There is no big drawback unless you are treating a pretty serious ailment.

You have two questions that I feel have no strings attached. Do you know what you wanted to ask, if I may ask?
