120x30_WalgrensTransparentLogoYou know working at a hospital gives you some insight in into the price of things especially medicine and what medicines are covered under what plans. Not to mention the price of the over the counter (OTC) medicines we would like to use but the parents may or may not be able to pay for. I gave up paying for name brand medicines years ago. The generics are essentially the same thing as the name brands but because they are being produced as generics they are cheaper. Take Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products for example. I use the Wal-Itin. It is essentially Claritin but generic Claritin called Loratidine. The dog and myself use this on a daily basis because we both have allergies oddly enough. It must be some sort of requirement when living down south.

Walgreens brings these specific brands to the consumer to help save you money but also with the purchase of the Walgreens products they contribute up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™ which in turn provides free preventive health tests as well as other services to local communities. So by helping you lower your cost you help other families who may not have the means to get health services. It is a win win situation.

There are several bloggers who have some Walgreens gift cards. You just need to check out the information regarding the giveaways so you can use your gif card, if you win, to buy your own Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product.
