Cheaper medicine

Medicines, nowadays, will cost an arm and a leg.  Thus, getting sick is not a good idea!

I'm diabetic!  And, my doctor prescribed me maintenance drugs, one of which is Metformin Hydrochloride (HCl).

At the drugstore, the pharmacist asked me what brand.  And, I inquired for the prices.  RiteMED brand is P2.50 / tablet; while, the branded one is P8:50 / tablet.  Without thinking, I purchased the RiteMED brand.  For 60 tablets, the cost is P150 only; hence, I saved P360 or 71%. 

Even there's option for cheaper medicines, getting sick is still not a good idea.

Be healthy always!
