Walmart: Lovastatin (mevacor), and pravastatin (pravachol) are available from walmart and many other pharmacies for $4 (for a month's supply). Simvastatin (zocor) is available generically but costs about $30 for a month's supply (20 mg). Atorvastatin (lipitor) has also become generic but i don't have access to the price. A double strength pill of any of the above cut in half will cut your cost in half.
