pineconeMarch 15, 2003

I AM GOING TO POST this message here and on the Grandparents Forum.

We retired with a decent income and could have lived just fine but...........

Our drug needs have increased.

Drugs are going over the top.......

I am looking at using Canada as a way to purchase drugs?

If you have used Canada......please post your story...good and bad........

Hi, I have a call in to 2 ladies that will get the meds from cananda for you and have not heard back. It is a big demand here right now! I have a cousin in Cleveland and she has gotten them for several years and is satisfied, Lucy

Hi pinecone,

I understand that busloads of people come from neighbouring states to Canada, largely to purchase their drug supply.

So there must be savings to be had.

One reason is that 68 cents U.S. buys a buck Canadian.

The international drug companies are making noises, and one threatened to cut off the supplies to the ones that they consider to be scoundrels.

There are some drug agencies that do large volumes, I think.

There may be something about having problems with prescriptions written by U.S. doctors, but many have channels set up to deal with this problem, I've heard.

If you want some quotes, I can see what I can find out.

My email address is available here.

Good wishes for a lovely week, all.

P.S. You say that you're posting this also on the "grandparents" site. Am I missing something? Don't tell me I'm in second childhood! EB

P.P.S. You're not the "pinecone" company that runs research surveys, I suppose?

Forgive me - just being mischievous.

Nothing like a good laugh to bring down the blood pressure - and relieve stress. EB
