RE: using canada discount rx for meds????

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
