    I know this thread is old, but I'm throwing this out here:
    alldaychemist.com
    Awesome place, but it will take two weeks to get your medicine. It's all generics, so make sure you click on something on the drop down menu that shows up as you're typing in the name of your drug. When you get to the part that says to fax in your prescription, just skip it and continue.
    I get all my high dollar inhalers from them: Spiriva is $450 a month, the generic from AllDayChemist is less than $50 for three months worth.

    I am intrigued by this company, but a little put off b/c it's all products manufactured in India. My DD just paid $50 deductible for an Albuterol inhaler for her dtr.

    Marianne, what else have you gotten from them?

    I now have COPD and Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)...yay...
    I get generic Advair, Ventolin (Albuterol), Lasix (the name brand), used Spriva for some time, plus 4 pills for my BP and heart. AllDayChemist is big in the Facebook COPD groups with everyone reporting good reviews. I remember folks saying that they get their insulin from them as well. All Day Chemist has a $15 shipping fee, so most of us order 6 months worth at a time. I think the site defaults to you paying by E-Check, but there is a credit card option to the left on that page. Again, I've never had to fax in my prescriptions (good thing, my doc's office charges $15 PER script. Eek). They do ask some basic health questions, who your doctor is, what you're being treated for, etc. When I ordered a bunch of pills, I had to sign for them when the mailman delivered 'em.

    A lot of our drugs are manufactured overseas - India and Turkey are common. We just don't know about it.

    I think my Albuterol (Ventolin) was around $25 for three - 200 doses each. Unfortunately, they don't carry the ones with the counter on them anymore, but it doesn't take much to figure out when they're out of medicine as you still are short of breath after using it a couple of times.

    My youngest son is a respiratory therapist in CO. He was stunned when he found out how much Advair and Spiriva cost. He said there isn't even $1.50 worth of medicine in there. What's crazy is that in almost every other civilized country in the world, inhalers are over the counter. I met an ol' gal that gets her Albuterol from Mexico, 3 for $15. Her BIL lives in New Mexico and drives across the border to buy them for her.

    I'm on Medicare now. When I renew my Plan D for next year, I'm leaving my high dollar drugs (inhalers) OFF so I can get a much lower monthly premium. And there's a sense of security knowing that I have the back up drugs in my cupboard for when I need them.

    That sure is a good thing to know. Drug prices are insane here in the U.S. I don't use any prescriptions, but lots of people do and it comes down to either eating or medicine.

    Thanks, Marianne. I'll be sure to let my dtr know about this company, and perhaps even order an Albuterol inhaler for myself. there are times when I know I'd benefit from it, but have let my Rx. expire b/c I find it stupid to pay $50 for a medication that I may not even use before the "use by" date.

    I've been thinking of getting a nebulizer because it works better for me. The albuterol for that is very cheap. It's on the $4 list at Walmart. Mom uses that when she catches something.

    I really don't know anything about med pricing (or doctor visit costs for that matter). Mom tries to tell me about her stuff but assumes that I've dealt with it before and doesn't explain. I'll keep the restrictions and military doctors we have to not deal with that.

    Thank you for sharing! I bookmarked the site. Most of my rx weren't on the site, and the one that was on the site was the same cost as what I pay at the pharmacy here. I checked my OTC and there was one that was less, but the difference was like $1 per month, so not worth it really after shipping. I'm kinda bummed! Really happy for those who can save using the site!
