Saving money on prescription drugs
I discovered this by accident. My daughter takes 5 mg of one medication daily. About six months ago, her dr wrote the rx for the 10 mg tablet by accident. I didn't notice until I had it filled and saw that the tablets looked different. I checked it out with the pharmacist and the dr and found that it was a mistake - but not one that I wanted corrected. I just bought a pill cutter and cut the 10 mg pills in half. That way I fill the rx and pay the $25 copay only every other month. This cuts the cost of her rx in half - from $300 a year to $150. Check with your doctor and pharmacist before you try this. Some medications - like those that are time-released - can not be safely divided.
