Save money with generic prescriptions

I'm sure you already know that generic prescriptions are cheaper than the "name brand" ones, but did you realize that, in several states, Wal-Mart fills generic prescriptions for $4? That's right - their charge for filling a generic prescription without insurance is less than my prescription drug plan co-pay! Say, for example, you have back pain and the doctor prescribes Ultram. If you ask him to sign that the prescription may be filled using the generic equivalent, you can pay $4 for Tramadol (generic Ultram) instead of shelling out big bucks for the name brand drug.

Have any of you purchased $4 generic drugs yet?
