I am taking ferrex 150 plus due to the fact that my blood count is 9.2. Can this drug be purchased over the counter? I have a prescription now, but my insurance doesn't cover.

This product appears to be available on amazon, possibly without a prescription ; but this does appear to be a prescription drug when I checked other online sources. It does indeed look to be an expensive product!
