Getting a prescription for the first time? ASK QUESTIONS!
- Is there an over the counter drug I can try first?
- Is there a generic equivalent?
- Is the drug on my insurer's preferred list?
- Should I try it for 7 days before getting a 30-day supply?
Just because a drug is generic, does not mean it's low-cost!
