The federal government doesn't regulate prices on drugs sold at pharmacies, so your costs can vary widely depending on where you buy. You may find that the pharmacy a few miles away may have one or two medications that are less expensive than the pharmacy across the street. Simply call the pharmacies in your area and compare prices. You may also want to ask if they have enough of the drug on hand to b dispensed so you do not run to the pharmacy only to find they have to ship it in from another store. The best prices are often found not only at discounters like Costco and Wal-Mart but also at drugstores that aren't part of a chain.
