Pharmacy price differences...wow.

So I've always filled my two acne prescriptions at the closest Pharmacy A, being under the impression that pharmacies are about the same, give or take a few bucks.

I decide to get it filled at Pharmacy B today because it was closer and I was already shopping in the area. Holy cow was I shocked at the difference. Here are the prices (after insurance):

Pharmacy A:

Finacea: $136

Differin: $64

Pharmacy B:

Finacea: $38

Differin: $20

The only thing that changed was the pharmacy I chose to fill at. No generic substitutions, no change in prescription. I did a little online research when I got home and realized how exorbitantly some pharmacies charge to mix those creams for you.

Just wanted to say...take the time to make comparisons.. Competition will work in your favor if you're willing to shop around.
