This is first rate site, found as a Consumer's Reports "other resources" link. Go to this site to look up available prices on prescription drugs, both re-imported brand name and made-in-India (by Ranbaxy, Cipla, Lupin and the many other fine pharmaceutical houses there). Not listed here are the FREE metformin and common antibiotics provided at Publix grocery stores. Also not listed is www.healthwarehouse.com, which has some of the best prices in the US on generics. Avoid using pharmacydiscountnetwork.com, which will lead you to sources having astronomical prices. See my separate review of this outfit. Also do not go near Medicare D, the well obfuscated scam crafted by Billy Tauzin, revolving door former congressman from Louisiana. There is a lot of dis-information, probably coming from BigPharma, on the internet regarding drugs from abroad. A red flag that you are reading dis-information is the word combination "India and China". Current enforcement allows US patients with proper doctor prescriptions to have up to a year's worth of drugs sent to them via common carrier from abroad, provided those drugs are not for resale.

Tip for consumers: Current rules allow one to obtain 100 days worth of each drug at a time for personal use (not the year's worth as stated in my original review). That causes our family no problem. With regard to pharmacies strictly within the US, a recent Consumer Reports article compares prices. The lowest prices, by far, were at Healthwarehouse and Costco. By comparison CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens had prices which were up to an order of magnitude higher.
