25 Prescription Drugs That May Be Cheaper With GoodRx Than With Insurance

Thomas Goetz
Thomas Goetz -

If you believe the best way to pay for your prescription is with health insurance, you’re hardly alone. After all, that’s why we have insurance in the first place, and that’s what we expect insurance to do—to cover our healthcare expenses. So when we get to the pharmacy, we show our insurance card, fork over the copay, and move along.

But it turns out this may be costing us money. For many popular drugs—including lisinopril, levothyroxine, and prescription ibuprofen—insurance copays are often higher than what people would pay with a discount from GoodRx. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

After a blood test, it’s easy to worry about the results. Will they be normal? What problems will they reveal? One of the most common reasons your primary care doctor might call you for an abnormal lab result is high creatinine levels. This usually reflects an impaired kidney function — but not always.

If serum creatinine levels are truly higher than normal, that isn’t a good thing and we know there are some medications that do cause real problems for kidneys. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Most diarrhea will resolve within 24 to 48 hours—if it’s caused by viral gastroenteritis (a stomach bug) or food borne illness. If your diarrhea is hanging on and not resolving, take a look at your medications. It can be challenging to identify which medication may be causing drug-induced diarrhea, especially if you’re taking multiple medications. Here are some well-known offenders commonly associated with drug-induced diarrhea. See More
