I had always filled my 90 day Tamoxifen prescription at Walmart but decided to give Walgreens a try. What a mistake that was.

Walmart charges $24 for 90 day supply of 20 mg pills. Walgreens cried to charge $199. That's over 8 times as much.

I told the pharmacist what Walmart charged and she told me that I must be mistaken.

So I had the script transferred to Walmart and paid $24 for the same 90 pills when I picked it up. Shame on Walgreens for abusing the trust of its customers and taking advantage of people who must take certain prescriptions.

Product or Service Mentioned: Walgreens Pills.

did you try to find out if that was for the generic or the brand name prescription you were getting? I've seen huge differences even at the same drugstore between brand name & generic.

I don't recall the exact price anymore but I had a small prescription for pain for 20 vicodin and the pharmacist told me how much it'd be I was like well is that for vic? or the generic? the generic which I was told is hydrocodone (I think that's what it was anyways) was about 1/4th the price. I should have paid the full price though as the generic did nothing for me.

after it ran out I got another one for another 20 and this time paid for the vicodin not generic and they worked 100x better.

not sure if this is what happened with you but you might want to find out all the same. if not that is a huge problem then in price difference.
