From the blog...pretty soon somebody will need to create a data base of all these generics so we can sort by retailer on one web page and get rid of the pdf page references.
One more retailer with the $4.00 offering...have added the
link to the direct pdf file on the resources column on the right hand
side...scroll down to locate the link and other retailers who offer
many generics for $4.00...BD

Cincinnati-based company said. It addition, it will sell generic

The palest ink is better than the best memory. - Chinese Proverb
It's interesting that when my wife filled a 90-day script at Kroger in the last month, the pharmacy only filled it with a 30-day supply, forcing my wife to return every 30-days. While inconvenient, it does point to the fact that Kroger is looking for foot traffic. A few months prior to that, the same store told her that they did not have a generic equivalent for the drug (when clearly there are dozens of generic equivalents), jacking up the price more than 10-fold. She moved the script to WalMart instead. When the doc called in the script after 90 days, she called it into the original Kroger, causing my wife to revisit Kroger. This time Kroger did have the generic equivalent at a low price but they only filled it for 30 days without even telling my wife. A number of phone calls later and Kroger relented, filling it for a full 90 days. I'll bet next that the exterior "walk up window" for conveniently filling scripts without entering the store will soon disappear. The convenience window doesn't encourage foot traffic.
Why bother with 4 dollars? How about completely free antibiotics (for now) at our friendly grocery store.....
...it's a "community service".... of course.....
