  • Mostly mail. I don't like it. I worry that someone will figure out what's in those packages and steal it out of my mailbox. Our insurance requires us to use a certain mail order service. We can get the first prescription at a local pharmacy and can get one time prescriptions like antibiotics at the local one. We can still get all of our meds at the local one if we want to but we have to pay quite a bit more for it than if we use the mail order.

  • Mail order pharmacy for long use medications and the local pharmacy for meds that are needed now. I don't like the mail order pharmacy that much either. However, I can pay $22 for 90 days or $22 each month and it's only 30 pills.

  • I use my local grocery store pharmacy. I was offered mail rx service on a couple of my rx's but, I'm afraid they won't be timely. My mother is always waiting and runs out of some of her medications. I'm just sticking with my pharmacy that's 4 blocks away.

  • I go to my grocery store's pharmacy.  I work at the store so I have insurance from my employer and if I get my scripts filled at their own pharmacy I don't have to pay dispensing fees.  It is so convenient to just drop off my script when I start my shift and pick it up when I'm finished.
