Price of medicine

Postby Splatted » Thu, 25 Jan 2007 12:35 pm

I've visited the local Guardian pharmacy and out of curiosity I enquired about the price of atenolol 100mg, which is what my doctor put me on for my blood pressure.

What I found was a HUGE price difference.

Doctor: $30 / box.
Pharmacy: under $8 for same sized box

I naturally now want to buy from the pharmacy, but how does one go about getting a script when it's in the doctor's interest to keep you as *their* customer?

Are there any non-dispensing doctors about who don't charge an arm and a leg for consultation?
