It's Goodrx.com not Goodrex
The place to check is pharmacychecker.com I've used several companies over the past decade with zero issues (other than one who took 5 weeks to deliver the meds). I always check who the pharmacy is and search their qualifications.
Cipla is a common supplier, very high quality, a med bought here at $20/40/tablet from India 0.50 to $2- there, it's sick. Also suggest to your friend if he needs, for instance xx milligrams (let's say 40mg) per day, will the doc allow writing a script for the 80mg/day dose, and can it be cut in half?
Heck I do that with rosuvastatin. My doc however acts as pharmacop and so I say: yes I take 20mg, in reality I cut them into 1/3. But you cannot do this with some meds! I have access to lipid blood testing equipment so I played around cutting it into 1/4 for 2 months, so taking 5mg, then 2 months later, 10, then 2 months later 15. After a dozen fingersticks I settled on 1/3 (that's about 6.3mg) My HDL:LDL ration is about 2.2 which is brilliant. If your friend is smart enough to act like a weasel he can get his meds for a small fraction but he must do it carefully.
No response necessary.
Btw, I have dry eye syndrome and use Restasis. My co-pay was $550/3 months, I bought it from one of the Canadian pharmacies for $130 shipped... that's sick when I can buy from a legitimate pharma for 25% of my co-pay. Yikes.
