Following suit as done here in the US for the $4.00 generic prescriptions available for over 300 common generic drugs...BD
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's leading retailer Wal-Mart de Mexico, or Walmex, has launched a line of 150 cheap generic drugs, selling for no more than $3.50, in a new bid to boost its appeal as a one-stop shop for clients looking for low prices.
Walmex's Medi-Mark generics line started selling last week at the retailer's supermarket chains.
The low-priced drugs include everyday staples like pain and fever reliever paracetamol, as well as more complex medicines such as cafergot, used for migraine treatment.
Some of the medicines, which are being manufactured by different laboratories, will cost 90 percent less than the leading over-the-counter brand, according to an industry source.
