What if the doctor prescribes a medication I need to start that same day?

If your doctor prescribes a medication you have to start immediately, you'll need to use a local pharmacy. For situations when you need medications right away, mail-order online pharmacies, especially international online pharmacies, are not an option.

However, in addition to verifying online pharmacies that send you medications by mail and comparing drug prices among approved pharmacies, our website offers a tool to search local U.S. pharmacy prices to help you find a discounted price at a pharmacy near you.

Search U.S. Pharmacy Discount Coupons if You Need Your Medication Right Away

  1. Enter the medication name in "Compare Drug Prices" search in the upper, righthand corner
  2. Click on the search icon, scroll to the bottom of the drug price comparison page
  3. Enter your ZIP Code
  4. Select the pharmacy
  5. Print the U.S. Prescription Discount Card
  6. Bring the coupon to your local pharmacy with your prescription to obtain your discount

You also might try calling the three pharmacies nearest you to get the best price.
