Default contraceptive warning!!

hi, i went along to my doctor yesterday to get my contraceptive pill ...got the prescription..went along to walmart to get my pill at the chemist there as ive been told they are the cheapest for charges..i nearly past out when she said that will be $22 for just 1 packet it would work out cheaper to have a another baby in the long run...anyone have any suggestions

also i have bought an acerage with hundreds upon hundreds of damn grass hoppers..ive never seen so many..and i didnt know that some of them fly too...any suggestions how i can get rid of them..bareing in mind i have kids and puppies

thanks all

Is there a Costco nearby.

I can't say for sure as I have never used them but I've seen reports that Costco charges the lowest dispensing fees.

I also understand that you do not need to be a member to get prescriptions filled, just tell the person on the door that you are going to the pharmacy.

Q1 Abstenance, or sterilization are both cheaper.

Q2 The hoppers will die soon when the weather's colder. They're not known to cause harm to kids or dogs. Rest easy.

You gotta pay in Canada? Shit.
First the low-cost airline going bust, and now this.

I got all the prescriptions I need on a regular basis before leaving the UK, but that will not help you much now... unless you have family in the UK, request prescription refill by post, GP mails it to family address, family picks it up and mails across. Not sure if you get this kind of thing through customs, though?

All prescriptions cost money here - and they don't come cheap either. None of your NHS cheap prescriptions. Can run into hundreds of dollars, depending on what you need.

Some jobs give you benefits through which you can reclaim 80% or so of the costs. I also here there is a way to reclaim some of it otherwise as a sort of tax break - but I have no idea how that works, to be honest.
