All medications, which includes over-the-counter preparations, vitamins and mineral supplements, and herbal preparations, are potentially dangerous.
Following some simple rules will not only reduce your change of having a problem, but should reduce your cost as well.
Always shop around for medications – there is a significant difference in cost from pharmacy to pharmacy. Check both online and offline sources.
For example, several of my patients have realized a significant cost savings by using the Costco pharmacy as well as online Canadian pharmacies. Should you choose to use a Canadian pharmacy, please keep abreast of any laws that may affect your purchases.
Always check to see if a generic equivalent is available. Today, there are very few medications on the market where generics are not acceptable.
