I just got off the phone with my Publix pharmacist and learned that they are offering diabetic patients their metformin free of charge. They already offer some antibiotics free so this is great. I know it is a low cost medicine, but this is a great help for those of us on a really tight budget.
If you live in the south, ask your local Publix store about this offer.

I went online, and it looks like you might be able to use and have meds mailed to you…this is what I copied, so those of us without a Publix near us might still be able to take advantage of the offer!
