Annoying Azithromyicin Z Pacs – what to do?

Why does a 6-day supply of Azithromyicin tablets individually encased inside a tough to open Z Pac cost the pharmacy less money than getting the medication in bulk and dispensing it 30 or 60 tabs to a container?

Above – so called cheap packaging…

Instead, Costco pharmacy has to pay more for less packaging.  The Z pacs hold only six tablets in each bulky booklet form and I have to battle to get each one out.  I was only able to punch one tab out of the Z Pac – before getting the scissors out and cutting my way around each tab…Not an easy task …my fingers are not working right.

I wonder why a package so difficult to open, obviously costing more to manufacture than plain tablets, costs the pharmacy less than getting it in bulk form.

The patient pays the penalty.

Has Obamacare arrived in Kitsap County?

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can get the Azithromyicin in bulk form?

Express Scripts did not.
