Thousands of drugs will be less expensive thanks to a recent class-action settlement. News sources including KOMO TV reported last week that the prices of more than 1,400 drugs including Lipitor, Claritin, Prilosec, Celebrex and Ambien, will be reduced by 4 percent and some consumers will receive money.

The case concerned an allegedly secret agreement between drug wholesaler McKesson and First DataBank, which publishes prescription drug prices.

The settlement has been preliminarily approved by a federal court in Massachusetts. If you bought any of the covered drugs, you may be eligible for a refund. To find out more and file a claim, go this site: http://www.mckessonawpsettlement.com/
