New Jersey Prescription Drug Price Registry

This article was written by in Consumer. 2 comments.

Over 100 of the most common prescription drugs are listed in the New Jersey Prescription Drug Price Registry, maintained by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. This website lets you search by medication name, type, and form to find the prices for these drugs by zip code.

For example, if you search for 100 mg capsules of Celebrex near Princeton, New Jersey, you will find that Eckerd has the lowest reported price in the township of $2.28 per unit. This compares to the state-wide low of $1.88, the high of $8.33, and an average of $2.55.

The results also tell you that most consumers paid $2.47 per unit. In Princeton, your price will range from $2.28 as mentioned above all the way to $2.72 per unit. As you can see, where you shop makes a big difference.

If you’re in Camden and looking for a good time (with 100 mg of Viagra), you’ll pay as much as $16.35 for a 100 mg tablet, significantly lower than the state-wide high of $29.45.

I think it’s GREAT that folks in New Jersey can check drug prices online instead of calling around. I know that I get good prices when I use my RxDrugCard.
