By using RxLess coupons, managing the cost of your medications has become a breeze. You no longer have to worry about the financial strain and can consistently follow your treatment plan without any hurdles. But you might be wondering, can RxLess coupons be used for over-the-counter (OTC) medications like Zyrtec, aspirin, Tylenol, Claritin, and nicotine patches?

While RxLess coupons are primarily designed for prescription medications, there is still a way you can to use them for many OTC medications. Here's how:

1. Get a prescription: To have your OTC medication covered by an RxLess coupon, you'll need to obtain a prescription for it. Keep in mind that the RxLess coupon is only applicable to prescribed medications. Simply reach out to your doctor's office and ask them to call or fax the prescription to your pharmacy.

2. Get a RxLess coupon: Download the free RxLess app or visit to search for the medication you need. Once you find the discount you would like to use, you can save the coupon by printing it out, texting it to your phone, or simply pulling it up in the app.

3. Visit the pharmacy counter: Armed with your prescription and RxLess coupon, head over to the pharmacy counter (not the cash register) and show the prescription to the pharmacist. They will assist you in getting the specific product, as many OTC medications are kept behind the counter. Remember to present your coupon to the pharmacist, as the regular cashier at the store's front cannot process RxLess coupons.

While RxLess coupons are primarily intended for prescription medications, we understand that affordability is essential for all aspects of your healthcare. That's why we are dedicated to helping you find the most affordable options. In addition to using RxLess coupons, there are other ways you can save on prescriptions. At RxLess, our goal is to support your health and make medication costs more manageable for you.
