A case manager recently reached out to the MedSavvy pharmacist team because she was trying to help a family with a 10-month-old daughter who had Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). The family was hoping to find a more cost-effective liquid treatment for their daughter. The medication she had been prescribed was liquid Famotidine or Omeprazole, which would cost roughly $300 out-of-pocket for every fill. This MedSavvy pharmacist was able to find a unique cost-savings solution. She recommended purchasing inexpensive Omeprazole capsules, which could then be opened and sprinkled onto applesauce. The infant was still getting the medication she needed to treat GERD, and the unique solution would save the family over $200 for the duration of the treatment.
