Free medications from retailers

Some stores are even giving away drugs — with a valid prescription, of course. Chains like Stop & Shop, Giant, Wegmans, Publix, Meijer and and Schnucks Pharmacy, have launched programs that allow for a free 14-day supply of the generic oral antibiotics regardless of your insurance. You can continue to refill prescriptions as needed. Many of the drugs covered are:

  • Amoxicillin
  • Cephalexin
  • Sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim
  • Ciprofloxacin (excluding Ciprofloxacin XR)
  • Penicillin VK
  • Ampicillin
  • Tetracycline
  • Erythromycin Stearate and Ethylsuccinate
  • Doxycycline Hyclate (capsules)

Meijer is also providing free pre-natal vitamins.
