Canadian pharmacy help
self | 11/13/12 | vanity

Posted on 11/13/2012 3:50:25 PM PST by Sherman Logan

I have a female relative in pretty severe financial straits. She has been able to find only part-time work and so has no health insurance. She has psoriasis, but with medication can keep it under control. Her meds were till recently available as generics at Walmart and elsewhere for $4/month.

They just went off the list and now cost upwards of $100, which puts a major dint in her budget.

I have been trying to help her by researching Canadian pharmacies, but it is pretty obvious that many of them are scam or semi-scam sites. She is concerned, rightly imo, about the possibility of counterfeit drugs from such sources.

Does anybody have a Canadian pharmacy they have used which appears to provide legitimate drugs?

I am not aware of any pharmacy with a Canadian street address which is a fraud or scam. What sort of semi scam?

I have never yet had any problem with an international mail order prescription, including from India, but some do, of course.

I have been using Canadian pharmacies for over 10 years. Just placed another order last Sunday.

The best one I have worked with is the following:

http://www.planetdrugsdirect.com/

They have free shipping.

You won’t appreciate my comments. It seems as though maybe 2 months ago, I started receiving a huge amount of spam on my personal e-mail that I have had for over 8 years. I get numerous spams a day from “Canadian Pharmacy”. They are usually pushing Viagra, etc. I also get spams for counterfeit watches, Russian babes looking for an American husband, and quite a few that are delivered in Chinese or Japanese(I don’t know the difference). The e-mails get routed into a SPAM folder, but it is still annoying. So I don’t know whether the Canadian pharmaceuticals are legit or not.

generics don’t go off the list. they are always the cheapest. There is a lot of fraud in “Canadian” re imported drugs. I would first look at a us internet supplier as they are easier to sue, and the FDA doesn’t like companies that sell fake drugs. That should give you a ball park for cost. Another suggestion would be to find a clinical trial.

What meds was she on? hit me up private if you don’t want to post.

I’ve been right here all along. Somehow my e-mail address got blasted all over the world in the last few months.

I hear you. One thing I can’t figure out is that in the past month those types of emails to me have actually decreased greatly. I used to get 70-100 of them each day, but now the number is more around 20-30. Maybe it’s because I don’t answer any of them!

Well, I have gotten about 15 a day at most, so not near what you have seen. Maybe the worse for me is coming. BTW, I don’t reply to any of them either.

I’ve ordered a ton of anti-biotics from them over the years.

They do not sell controlled substances or crap that will get you in trouble.

Just out of curiosity, what is the name of the med she takes? I work at a pharmacy (inpatient, hospital) and we are currently experiencing a number of drugs that are unavailable due to shortages. There are always some shortages, but I believe the current crop has been exacerbated by the New England Compounding debacle. Quite a few related manufacturers have been found not adequate in the sterility of their productions, and so have voluntarily recalled their products. I’m just wondering if the drug in question will be available again in the near future.

Help your cousin contact the manufacturer of the drug. You’d be surprised how helpful they are to people who can’t afford their product. Good luck. Prayers for her.

I have ordered from the Canadian Pharmacy which has the name of their pharmacist listed on their website, their street address and phone number. I have never had a problem.

Have an elderlyl relative who received Plavix 75mg FREE for about 8-10 years from Bristol-Myers. They have a program to provide it free for low incomes.
Plavix is extremely expensive.

Has she tried contacting the drug maker? Many of them have drug assistance programs for people in her situation.

Well actually living in Canada the pharmacies are legit. You don’t usually mail away for drugs though but actually go to them and hand over your prescription. I really don’t know the price differential in drug costs but they are not given away free either. I do recall hearing of bus trips that went to Canada for people to stock up but not lately to be honest. This is one of the few things that is cheaper in Canada since almost everything else is more expensive up here. But buying drugs isn’t the same as buying a pair of shoes.
