GoodRx provides prices and discounts for thousands of prescription drugs at more than 70,000 local and mail-order pharmacies in the USA. We're like an Orbitz for prescription drugs. Doctors, hospitals, clinics, and patients use us every day to save money.
Simply enter the name of any drug (generic or brand-name) into the form, give us a location (city, state, or ZIP), and we'll show you the lowest price we can find at both local and mail order pharmacies for a variety of dosages and quantities for your prescription.
The prices we display may be any of the following:
Keep in mind that prices are always subject to change. We actively check our prices and we encourage you to let us know when you are charged a different price.
If you click on the pharmacy or the price, you can see other available prices and discounts, and additional information about that pharmacy, including the location(s), hours, fax and phone numbers, and services like walk-in clinics, compounding, and home delivery.
In addition to prices, GoodRx also provides information about manufacturer discounts. These discounts are typically free but may require registration. We'll also provide you with tips on how to save even more money by pill splitting or considering other medications for the same condition. Of course, only you and your doctor will know what works best for you.
Finally, for many of our drugs, our pharmacist and doctor have written up descriptions and additional information that may interest you.
You can look up current prices for your prescription from our home page at http://www.goodrx.com or using the search bar at the top of any page on the site. Enter the name of your prescription and your ZIP code or city, then click the FIND THE LOWEST PRICE button.
On the following page, you'll see prices for your medication. Remember to select your strength and quantity from the dropdown menus above the pharmacy listings to show accurate prices for your prescription.
After searching for your prescription, you'll see a list of pharmacies and prices. You should also see some dropdown options with blue text just above those listings. There are sections where you can select brand or generic, form (e.g. tablet or cream), dosage (e.g. 100 mg), and quantity. Choose the right options for you in each section, and the prices will reload to show you coupons that match your prescription.

The My Best Pharmacy feature is available if you've signed up for a My Rx account. It shows you the lowest total price you'll pay at a single pharmacy in your area with one easy to use coupon.
You may still be able to find a lower price by filling at multiple pharmacies, or by using more than one coupon at the same pharmacy, but your Best Pharmacy price provides the maximum combination of convenience and savings.
We offer coupons from multiple sources, so if you would like to save even more, we encourage you to search for your prescriptions individually, and print a coupon for each medication at each pharmacy. Your pharmacist may need to process some transactions separately if you have multiple coupons.
There are a few reasons why a pharmacy may not come up in your search.
Depending on which city or zip code you're searching in, you may need to adjust the search radius using the map on the left of the page, or the drop-down distance selection below the map. You can also try clicking the VIEW MORE PHARMACY PRICES button at the bottom of the price results list to show more pharmacies in your area.
If your pharmacy is a local independent or small chain, look for the coupon available at the bottom of the price listings. We can't list pharmacies by name that don't have approval from a nationally-recognized professional organization, but most of these pharmacies will still accept GoodRx coupons.
We only list licensed US pharmacies, including our online, compounding, fertility, and pet medication listings.
GoodRx has prices and discounts for virtually every one of the 70,000+ retail pharmacies in the US. However, we don't show the names and locations of a number of the pharmacies in our database. Why?
In the interest of patient safety, GoodRx abides by quality standards established by a nationally-recognized professional organization that works to ensure public health and patient safety. As such, we only display pharmacies that have been accredited by this organization.
Just because a pharmacy does not appear in our results does not mean that it is illegal or dangerous. There are many legitimate pharmacies that do not have the appropriate accreditation, but GoodRx prefers to err on the side of caution.
GoodRx can help you find and compare prices at local and online pharmacies, but we aren't a pharmacy ourselves and we don't fill prescriptions.
You'll want to get in touch with your preferred pharmacy directly if you have any questions about filling a prescription. You can find contact information (or a link to the website if it is an online pharmacy) in the box that comes up if you click the pharmacy name.
