At RegenceRx, we encourage our members to play an active
role in their health care. We believe that the better informed
you are, the more successful your treatment will be. It
just makes good sense to talk openly with your doctor about
potential medication alternatives, possible side effects,
and how soon your symptoms will improve.
To make sure you have the best available medication information,
we developed educational summaries called ConsumerRx. These
summaries can help you better understand medication choices,
prior authorization of certain medications and the possible
benefits of taking those medications.
Below you’ll find ConsumerRx information for medication
alternatives for common conditions such as allergies and
asthma, ADHD, heartburn, pain, and insomnia, just to name
a few. You’ll also find information about generic
medications and other money-saving tips.
