    Generic Tegaderm

    It's amazing the little things that excite me.

    CVS is now stocking their line of Tegaderm for approximately 1/3 of the price.

    I found it by chance in the aisle where the Tegaderm is located. In Greater Boston, a box of 8 Tegaderm is $12.99. The CVS Brand for 8 is $4.99.

    I bought three boxes and have used them w/ absolutely no issues. I compared the two products side by side and there was no visible difference.

    I spoke w/ the Store Manager who reported it is a new product and indicated that the Store Managers are permitted to "special order" CVS Brand products by request.

    Although I get all my meds through an independent pharmacy, it seems like this product is a winner.

    Hope this news benefits folks.

    Re: Generic Tegaderm

    That is good price for the drugstores about .62 a piece, but you can look online and find them as low as .25 - .40 a piece after shipping when you buy in bulk. Some people like the roll tape, I like the pre-packaged covers for convenience and you can find them in many sizes. I just replenished from online and paid .25 per cover after shipping costs.

    This is what I buy:
    3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing, (look at various sizes).

    That was great and thanks for sharing you info!!!
