Free Medications at Publix

I wanted to share one of my favorite tips for saving money at the pharmacy.

I don't know how many of you knew this but Publix has certain medications that you can get for free with a prescription.

I have this list printed out and in my wallet so that if I take a sick kid (or myself ) to the doctor's office I will have it.

If the doctor says we need antibiotics, I pull the list out and ask if he can write the prescription for one of the medicines on the list.

There are several different antibiotics on the list:
  • Amoxicillin
  • Ampicillin
  • Cephalexin (capsules and suspension only)
  • Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim (SMZ-TMP)
  • Ciprofloxacin (excluding Ciprofloxacin XR)
  • Penicillin VK
  • Doxycycline Hyclate (capsules only)
There are also two other maintenance medications available for free: Metformin and Lisinopril.

It doesn't matter who your prescription insurance provider is or the number of prescriptions you need filled. There's no limit to the number of refills and no forms to fill out.
