Prescription meds from Canada

Lots of places online to send your prescription at 1/3 of that price, even less for generics. Not sure how to research and find the legit ones.



 



I ordered Viagra from India once. All it gave me was a stiff neck.  biggrin.gif

Only people who hate America and all that it stands for.

 

You've got to be kidding? If he can legally purchase medicine (that is manufactured in the USA & sold to it's citizens at drastically inflated prices) from a Canadian pharmacy at a reasonable price then buy it! :mad:

My son was just prescribed "singulair"- $450.00 for 90 pills. Need to find a more cost effective source than Rite Aid with my ****** insurance from Aetna.

 

Check out the laws regarding out of country drug purchases. Big pharmy lobbies may have put Tge squeeze on this behavior --- the DEA may come knocking to seize that dangerous singulair!

 

Years ago, before the law or regulation that I seem to recall, we bought an Alzheimers drug from the UK that was not available here. She received it for four to five years before it was approved in the USA. It later became one of the two drugs that are used for treatment. Did it work? It slowed the progression. Was it cheaper? Much, much cheaper from the UK.

 

I also had an allergy doc in the early 1980's that gave me the name and address of a pharmacy in Montreal... Send them a money order for $10 and receive an inhaler that was not yet approved here. I think it was Proventil.

 

Check out the potential side effects for singulair --- that may have been the medicine that made me start a list of names --- a short list with a short life span. I stopped the medicine and threw out the list. I've got a pretty good memory, though. Seriously... I remember some warning with young people.

Before I was eligible for Medicare D, I did get some meds from Northwest (I think that's it) in Canada.  I was quite pleased.  If you need to get stuff from out of the country, check where it's coming from.  UK, Israel,  Canada, are ok.  Please check out very carefully.  Oh there are more pharmacies which are rated in Canada. 



 



The problem is, IMHO, that Big Pharma has such a hold on the politicians that they will not let Medicare "bargain" for meds like the V.A. can.  I wish President Obama would do something about it.  So it goes...

The patent expires in 2012, so hopefully a generic should be available.

 

When/IF a generic does become available, try walmart. They advertise a $4 for 30 day/ $10 for 90 day program.( Bangor/Brewer/Elsworth)

I use a grocery store chain that has a comparable program here called wegman's(You don't have them up there, yet.)

Both have a $4/$10 generic program. I went to wegmans and got the $4 generic for 1 prescription, and antibiotic was free. I gave them my health insurance card,

and the pharmacy tech said it would be a lot less expensive to just forget about the health insurance .

 

I self insure, so this is something that I have done some research on. Hope this helps.
