MPR is web and mobile friendly platform. MRP can be used to check what to expect to pay when you get a prescription from your doctor, find possible generics for a branded medicine. Ask your doctor if these medicines are viable alternatives.

Ensure that you are not being overcharged for your medicine.Here are some ideas for how MRP can be useful:

-When your doctor prescribes a medicine, quickly check on your phone for alternatives and ask whether the brand name product can be replaced with a generic.
-If you’re on chronic medication you can periodically check to see whether the price of your meds has increased.
-While waiting in the queue at the pharmacy, you can look up your medicine and find out how much it will cost you and what alternatives you can ask the pharmacist for.
-If you look up a particular medicine often, you can bookmark the page so that you can quickly refer to it.MRP provides the latest (May 2017) medicine prices.
