If you don't have insurance, paying for prescriptions can cost you a bundle.
While you may be tempted to cut costs but cutting down on your pills, there may be better options available to you.
Several companies offer free discount prescription drug cards.
Most of them can be printed off your computer and used immediately.
The savings can be phenomenal too.
The web site consumerworld.org looked into this and found the prices for the same drug can be very different.
Here's what their study discovered.
The price for the cholesterol-lowering drug Simvastatin, the generic form of Zocor, sold for $39.99 at CVS. The same drug was less by using the below listed cards.
AARP Card - $38.99
AAA Card - $35.99
