Save Money on the Drugs You Need

5. Make Lifestyle Changes

Talk with your doctor about lifestyle habits, such as exercise and healthy eating, that could reduce your need for certain medications.

6. Shop for Medication Discounts

Consider a prescription discount card or fill your prescription through mail order to reduce the cost of your medications. You can also check with your state or local government about prescription assistance programs for which you might qualify.

7. Be Your Own Advocate

You’ve explored your medication options. Now take your personal medication record and your list of medication options and discuss each with your doctor. Let your doctor know that cost is a concern. And don’t forget to talk to your pharmacist too.

Exploring your medication choices can save you money. Just remember, becoming your own medication manager—in partnership with your doctor and pharmacist—can ensure that you use prescription drugs safely and effectively.
