How to Save Money on Arthritis Prescriptions

Part of the Arthritis For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The high cost of prescription drugs can be a real problem if you have a chronic condition like arthritis that requires a steady supply of medication. Luckily, you have several options for lowering the cost of your arthritis meds:

  • Review your medications and see which can be eliminated or replaced with over-the-counter varieties.

  • Ask your doctor if he has free samples of your prescription drugs.

  • Check out Medicare's Drug Discount Program.

  • Find out if you qualify for a drug assistance program.

  • Get a pharmacy discount card.

  • Buy generic versions of any prescription you can.

  • Buy your pills in bulk.

  • Ask your doctor if she will write the prescription at double-the-strength, and split the pills at home.

  • Compare prices at different pharmacies.

  • Consider online or mail-order pharmacies.
