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.

Above – so called expensive packaging….

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.
