morphine sulphate 15mg
17 Feb 2012
Hi Ray! Prices of medication are different from pharmacy to pharmacy and are different in different areas of the country so the best thing for you to do to find out how much your prescription is going to cost you is to call around to the different pharmacies in your area. If you dont have a local yellowpages phone book, you can find the numbers online (Dex.com, yellowpages.com etc). Call and tell the pharmacy that you would like a price check on a prescription. The pharmacy will need to know the name of the drug, so Morphine Sulfate ( they will also need to know if the prescription is for CR or ER or long acting formula-if there are no letters behind the morphine sulfate then it is just the immediate release form-this can make a great difference in price as long acting tend to be a little more expensive) and they also need to know the strength, so 15mg, and the quantity, so 90 tabs.
Once you give them this info they can tell you the cash price (I assume you do not have insurance) Try Walmart, Sams Club and Costco first. They buy in very large quantities and usually have the best prices, but not always. Like the above poster said-you do not have to be a member of the clubs-just tell them at the door you wish to use the pharmacy only. Call around though, because sometimes the pharmacy chains or grocery store pharmacies can be cheaper. Find your best price. The reasons for the differences can be different manufacturers, one store might buy a higher quantity and get a better price etc. so get the best deal you can!
