Common drugs included in the survey were penicillin, me-trobamate and tetracyclin. Most druggists will not quote prices over the telephone. Robert G. Gibbs, the executive director of the Iowa Pharmaceutical Assn., said the reason many pharmacists don’t quote prices to telephone callers Is that many callers give pharmacists erroneous information. He said there also are other variables that influence drug pricer. Gibbs said no pharmacist he knows would refuse to quote prices to a patient who comes into the store. “No pharmacist has anything to hide,” he said. Gibbs questions whether posting prices is the best way to communicate price information He said the ISPIRG proposal to post prices for the IOO most commonly prescribed drugs would not begin to cover the several thousand products available.
