What we do
Price-RX.com was founded in 2001. Our website lists pharmacies and compares prescription medications costs.
The main purpose is to help you keep your prescription costs down and make an optimal choice.
There are not as many trustworthy websites operating now as it may
look at the first sight. In our comparison charts we list only
reputable companies. We try to make it more convenient for you
to find reliable pharmacies with good prices and wide
variety medications for different health conditions.
For our foreign visitors we list tested and reliable international pharmacies that sell quality generics and ship them to majority of the countries in the world.
