Walgreens Prescription Savings Club - What I Wish I'd Known LAST WEEK!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.


Admittedly, I have not had much time for crafting or creating lately. :( These past two weeks have been very frustrating for me. Between myself and my son I have been to the doctor three times, had three different diagnoses, and 4 different prescriptions. Yea, I'm pretty exhausted. First, I wasn't feeling well at all. I've been having panic attacks, episodes of palpitating heart, and to top it all off I have been extremely tired and sluggish for no apparent reason. My doctor explained that it was probably just severe anxiety and she tried explaining to me that some stressors can just set people over the edge! Well, I couldn't help thinking to myself, "That's not me! I'm happy!".


 Anyhow she administered three different blood tests and sent me on my way. Well, the next day I received a call from a phone nurse telling me I needed to start medication IMMEDIATELY because one of the blood tests reveled I now have hypothyroidism. Apparently, it's kind of rare in the general population, but not un-common for women who have just given birth. (Apparently my body was not tuned into that until a year and a half later!) Basically my thyroid isn't producing enough hormones to sustain my day-to-day bodily functions, my hormone levels were approximately 200 times lower than they were supposed to be. Well, I guess at least it's good news that I think I've found out what's been going on with me.


On top of taking all of that in - my son had an ear infection and later had to be prescribed breathing treatments for some severe chest congestion he started having. Yea, I'm pretty EXHAUSTED.


On top of all this chaos, I then had to make four {yes - FOUR!!!} separate trips to Walgreens to fill my prescriptions! Luckily they have a drive-thru, so thankful for that! 


But with me being out of work currently and my boyfriend having his own small business (meaning no health insurance coverage) I wish I had known about this:


Walgreens is now offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club:

For $35 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. If you join, you'll even get discounted  prices on your prescriptions. $20 for individuals. Isn't that great?!

Other benefits include:
-Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications
-Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies
-Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services

You can find more information about the program here at  Walgreens Prescription Savings Club website or you can stay updated by liking them on Walgreens on Facebook and following them by mean of Walgreens on Twitter.

Anyways, hopefully both of us will go through speedy recoveries and I am definitely going to enroll in this prescription club to help with all of our scrip costs! I'm posting this because I know how important saving money (especially on healthcare) is to ANYONE else in a situation similar to ours. May you all have good health and wealth in this new year!
