Canadian prescription drugs

Helen317December 31, 2003

Does anyone have any info. about ordering prescription drugs from Canada? I will be on Medicare in March and will no longer have prescription insurance. I'm investigating options. Helen

Sorry, but I don't have any info on this. Besides, I thought that this was banned, or something. I don't know if you'd be interested in this or not, but there's a site on the web where you can get some prescription drugs for like ---$ 5.00--(at least, that's what they say)---just type in "free prescription drugs" and you should be able to find it. I think you have to send in 5 bucks for each prescription and they send a letter to your doctor.

Thanks, Yellowhair. Guess I won't try to start a discussion on this topic as ordering Canadian drugs may not be technically legal.

I handle matters for a relative. One drug is $157 for 30 pills (one a day). I went on GOOGLE and got a Canadian toll free number from an advertiser. I talked to them. For $121.00 I can get 60 pills. There's no generic and I asked twice if it was the identical drug I purchased in the U.S. The person said yes. They said nothing about new laws or restrictions. I've heard these are being kicked around but have not been implemented. QUESTIION: I feel uneasy that the drug may not be the same although I was told it was. If anyone has had ordering experience I'd certainly like to hear from them. Thanks.

Candler, if you go to the AARP.com message boards, you'll find some informative discussions there on Canadian drugs. Good luck!

Please also investigate each drug manufacturer's website. Many have free drug programs for those who can't afford it. I looked into this for my mom, who was on Coumadin. You can also ask your doctor for as many free samples as he/she can give you. Some docs are very sympathetic and will help all they can.
