The pharmacist gave me a different price than what the price check tool showed. What can I do?
It's frustrating to be quoted one price online, only to find it’s different when you arrive at the pharmacy. Prescription prices are volatile and can change daily at different pharmacies even in the same zip code.
When you use our price check tools, be sure to do a final look-up on the same day you are paying for your drugs. You’re far less likely to be surprised by a different amount than you expected, and, you may find another pharmacy with an even lower price!
Another common issue is, your pharmacy may be using a different discount card. Why? Habit, speed, and convenience. You can always ask your pharmacist to "please check the cash price and process it with the RxtoMe discount.
If you're still having problems, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, Monday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm PST. Our team will be glad to help get to the bottom of any issues!

Can I use this to get discounts on my Medical Marijuana?
No. At this time, our discounts only cover FDA approved medications. The FDA has not approved marijuana for any medical use, so the RxtoMe Discount card can't provide discounts for medical marijuana, even if you have a medical card.
Can I use this to get discounts on Canadian medications?
No. RxtoMe only offers discounts for the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Guam.
Generic vs Brand Name
"A" rated generics meet the same quality standards as brand name prescription drugs and thus provide the same medical benefits. A drug that is "A" rated by the FDA as a generic equivalent contains identical active ingredients as the brand name drug, the same dosage as the brand name drug, and delivers the same concentrations of drug to the bloodstream within the same amount of time. Other than the price, there is little difference when comparing generic vs brand name drugs, although the shape or color of the generic you buy is likely to be different from brand name medicines.
What if there is no generic available?
Generic prescription drugs are available only when the patent for the original brand name drug has expired. The patents for many popular brand name drugs have recently expired. However, if a generic is not available, there may be an alternative medication in the same pharmaceutical class that is less expensive or that does have a generic equivalent. Ask your physician if such an alternative would be right for you.
