Synthroid- I can’t believe I didn’t know about this one. A Synthroid discount??? A neighbor actually told me about the synthroid savings program. Details aren’t available, but please comment about it if you find real details. I’m “told” you can save “$50″ per month on Synthroid (I read somewhere else that it only saves $10 per 90 tablets). They call this the “TrueBalance” program, and it offers refill reminders, and other tips. Just note though, 90% of my customers successfully use generic levothyroxine (sometimes labeled L-thyroxine sodium), but if your doctor is stubborn, or you’re hard to manage, this Synthroid program is definitely the way to go. Luckily, in my pharmacy, we use the same manufacturer for levothyroxine (l-thyroxine sodium) to substitute Synthroid prescriptions, but this might not always be the case. If you have a close relationship with your pharmacy, then I recommend trying the generic Synthroid switch, but if you are a pharmacy “hopper” or treat prescriptions like dry cleaning, then you should stay with branded Synthroid (and sign up for the Synthroid savings coupon). Your call.
