    it is legal to purchase prescriptions from an on-line pharmacy in Canada.  Section 804 of the Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act sets forth the criteria under which this is permissible.  I have, in fact, done so.  You must first find a pharmacy that fulfills the legal criteria.

    The prescriptions I have filled that way have cost substantially less than purchasing them locally.  It takes 2 - 3 weeks for them to arrive, so you must plan accordingly and take that into consideration.  The prescription must be either emailed or faxed to that pharmacy.  In one instance, the pharmacy had a question and called my physician, who was quite good about answering their question and streamlining the process for me, knowing it was a Canadian pharmacy.

    You are my brother, my sister.
