Generic pharmaceuticals play a significant part in helping community pharmacies succeed. Pharmacy profit margins are thinner than ever today, thanks to the rising cost of drugs and the pressure applied by pharmacy benefit managers and DIR fees. When purchased at competitive prices, generic pharmaceuticals can be a significant profit stream to improve margins and ensure profitability.

But for the independent pharmacy, getting the best prices from a generic pharmaceutical wholesaler is no longer a given. Rather than working with generic distribution suppliers who focus on large chain pharmacies, more small pharmacies are purchasing generic pharmaceuticals from a supplier like H. D. Smith who focuses on business solutions and distribution for community pharmacies.
Today, when seeking to find the best deal on generic pharmaceuticals, more community pharmacists are finding highly competitive generic drug prices at H. D. Smith, a leading generic prescription distributor for independent pharmacies.
