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:

Cash Price
This is the price you'll pay if you walk in, present your prescription and pay cash without insurance.
Coupon Price
GoodRx offers free, printable coupons which give you access to discounted prices at the pharmacy. You'll see a big GET COUPON link next to the price. There are no obligations, contracts or fees to you for using a coupon and pharmacies are required to accept them.
Membership Price
Some pharmacy chains offer discounted prices if you sign up for a for-pay (typically $5 - $30 per year) or a free membership program. We'll let you know what the terms of membership are and provide a link to learn more.

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.

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, and we do not have prices or listings for compounding pharmacies at this time.

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.
