(PRWEB) January 24, 2003

Tampa, FL January 23, 2003 – PillBot.com today announced the launch of GoGeneric.com (http://www.GoGeneric.com) a United States based generic prescription drug mail order provider.

Gregg James, VP of Operations stated, “GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) made its position clear. It has announced that it will no longer sell its prescription drugs to Canadian distributors who sell to Americans via the Internet and mail order. In response to GSK’s announcement, PillBot has launched GoGeneric.com, which offers a wide variety of the generic equivalent of such popular brand name drugs such as Prozac, Wellbutrin, Imdur, Zestril and Tenorectic at prices lower than both Canadian pharmacies and most major U.S. drugstore chains. Customers can save upwards of 50% and more off Canadian drugstore prices.”

An example of the substantial savings compared to Canadian pharmacy prices can be found by comparing the price of Fluoxetine, the generic equivalent of Prozac (a widely prescribed medication). The average Canadian price of Fluoxetine (20 mg., 100 pills) is $101.75, plus shipping and Canadian Physician Review fees. The GoGeneric.com price for the exact same prescription is $59.00. Pricing on GoGeneric.com includes shipping via United Parcel Service.

“AARP has expended millions in advertising dollars encouraging its members to buy generic over brand name prescription drugs” stated Mr. James. “We now have the ability to purchase these medications at bulk pricing and as our purchasing power increases through sales, we look forward to being able to further lower our prices and expanding our online selection of generic prescription medications. We’re already receiving inquiries from Canadian pharmacies seeking to transfer their American business to our United States based operation.”

GoGeneric.com is part of the PillBot (http://www.pillbot.com) and PillBid (http://www.pillbid.com) family of online prescription drug comparison search engines. PillBot.com is featured in the February 2003 issue of Consumer Digest Magazine and PillBid.com was voted “Best of the Net” by Money Magazine.
