OTC Savings

December 30, 2015: OTC Savings

I’ve told you before that I don’t turn to medicine as my first resort when I get sick, but there comes a time when we all need to go to the doctor. And on a recent trip, my doctor confirmed what I suspected for a while: many companies overcharge for brand name over-the-counter medicine.

Her tip? Look to the right and find the generic and compare active ingredients. They are most likely exactly the same at a fraction of the cost.

And if there are certain over-the-counter medicines that you use frequently, like for headache or allergy relief, visit a membership club like Sam’s or Costco to really amp up your savings.


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
