37. I've used CVS in the past

When I was living in NY, they had the ONLY one in my zip code, other than a couple of tiny supermarket pharmacies. There were a half a dozen places to buy a tire or a car to put it on, but only about five or six years ago, they finally put up a CVS. They were OK, but the prices were steep.

If you can, find an independent pharmacist. We have one in SC, and they bend over backwards to get things right. They don't spend money on advertising like the big chains do. Also, if you've got maintenance drugs, some supermarket pharmacies will fill them with generics for dirt cheap or free. I just found out that the Publix in my town will do that with my blood pressure medication.

Finally, if you've got the need for a maintenance drug that is not cheap, consider Canadian pharmacies online. It takes about three weeks to get your meds, so it requires some planning. Also, they'll take my Mastercard attached to my health savings account. I have one med that costs about a hundred bucks for a 90 day supply, the same drug at CVS would be well over six hundred dollars!
