You probably already know that GoodRx can save you tons by helping you compare prices for your prescriptions.

But that’s just one of the many ways we can help you save.

For most drugs, GoodRx provides Savings Tips (located just above the prices). Don’t skip over these too fast! These tips provide powerful ways to save and important information, including pill splitting, drug recalls, manufacturer discounts, patient assistance programs and much more.

One of the best ways to save is to switch to a generic equivalent for any brand-name drug.  If you see a tip that a generic alternative is available, be sure to check it out to see the lowest coupons and pharmacy prices we have to offer.

Many drugs, sadly, aren’t available as generics yet. Fortunately, we monitor all forthcoming generics and we list any available information about estimated release dates in the Savings Tips as well.

Unless your doctor specifies that your prescription must be filled with the brand, your pharmacist will usually substitute a generic at the drugstore. Generics approved by the FDA have the same dosage, safety, strength, method of use, quality, performance, and intended use as the brand-name drug.
