The fine print.

Quantity restrictions may apply. Discounted price is not available for drug, dosages, and forms that do not appear in the Publix Pharmacy medications program discounted drug list. Consult your pharmacist or physician if you have any questions about your prescription.

Prices may be higher in certain states. Publix reserves the right to modify the terms of, and drugs covered by, the Publix Pharmacy medications program at any time without prior notice. Publix may limit discounted prices to listed prescription drugs that are in stock and that are manufactured and sold by certain pharmaceutical manufacturers only.

i am a pharmacist and pretty much everything on their list is an older product which are dirt cheap to begin with (less than a $1 acquisition cost). most of these have newer and better replacements (better efficacy or less side effects). but if you are on a tight budget these are an option but by no means are they a slick deal.

I have to challenge you on this re being a slick deal.

1) Many people have NO insurance and certainly can't afford the 'newer/better' drugs. It's more than just a tight budget. a new version of some of these can run $200 or more for an RX. Plus many have high deductibles (say $2K) and this still could be a better route for some.

2) even if you have insurance/met deductible, you'll pay more if you get these drugs using the insurance plan as most have a $4-20 copay per 30 or 90 day RX.

3) Just because they are dirt cheap acqu. cost, doesn't mean every pharmacy sells them for $0 or $7.50 for 90 days.

Naturally, like all deals, one size doesn't fit all...but I think you missed the boat claiming this isn't a slick deal. for you it may not be, but for someone who can barely afford their meds, it could be a lifesaver.

it is not slick. again these are older, cheaper meds to begin with and are often (if not always) cheap to purchase (both acquisition and retail sale price). this store just happens to be advertising it. if you came into my pharmacy and asked me to price match those, i would do it no problem.

i stand by the point that it may be better for some to get newer products for the reasons i mentioned (better efficacy and fewer side effects). when dealing with your health / well being saving a few $ is not always the best practice. save the money on a hard drive deal, or a laptop deal etc.). would you seek out bargain priced brain surgery?

and don't think i am recommending the newer products because they are more expensive and hence more profitable. the reverse is true. pharmacists from a business perspective hate more expensive products, they have a higher acquisition cost (Less cash flow) and much less profit margin. maybe you make $3 on a $200 RX, whereas I could make the same amount of profit on one $5 cheap generic RX.

I think the point was, for some, it is older, cheaper meds or nothing. And older less effective is better than nothing. And most doctors would rather write you a prescription for something you can afford if you tell them you're bucks down than have you walk away from the pharmacy counter empty handed.

My job only wants me to get my prescription from express scripts if I go to any other pharmacy I will on get meds for 21 days so to the question The meds I pay $20 for 90 days wiith express scripts is free if I get them thru Publix free program. Is the medicine from the free program less potent than the meds I pay for through express scripts?
