May 11, 2007, Newsletter Issue #76: Look Over The Counter

Tip of the Week

Don't forget about over-the-counter medications: By sticking to the no-name store brand, you'll save $100 of the $400 that the average American spends annually on over-the-counter drugs; however, many of these may not have started out as prescriptions.
On the other hand, the prescription drug, Zegrid, which may have cost of $4/pill, may be found Over the Counter (OTC), under the “branded name” Prilosec, for about .68 cents/pill, and it is exactly the same thing as the prescription at a lower dosage.
