There is a great website called 'Medtipster' that enables you to locate low-cost, generic prescriptions from reputable pharmacies in your area. On the site's homepage, you just type in the medication you need, the dosage and your zip-code and Medtipster will direct you to the least expensive retailer. It's a very useful tool that makes finding affordable prescriptions easy...google search "Medtipster" and have a look

Thanks for the "tip." AARP wrote about this web-based service at

With hope, Wendy

Locally (Boston area), pharmacies in the Stop & Shop supermarkets are offering free antibiotic prescriptions--which I wish I'd remembered when I recently filled a prescription for Pen VK elsewhere.

However, as Kairol pointed out, even places that will fill a prescription for free aren't much help for people who can't afford to see the doctor to get the prescription in the first place.
