(Vanity) Question Regarding Prescription Meds from Canada
Posted on Wednesday, February 17, 2010 1:30:47 PM by fatnotlazy
My insurance company has denied coverage for one of my meds. I am appealing the denial, but in the meantime, I need this medicine. I already priced the drug locallly -- about $200 for a 3-month supply without insurance coverage. Does anyone here use Canadian pharmacies for their prescriptions; if so, can you recommend one to me? If you have had bad experiences with Canadian pharmacies, I'd like to know about that too.
Thank you in advance, everyone!
I don't think there are any words I could add to make this more delicious. But the Freepers give it a go anyway:
The Mexican alternative is here:

I can only help by telling you that my mother had nothing but good experiences with the Canadian pharmacies she used. Honest, accurate and helpful.

Universe....folding over....on itself....
Do what you want, but in my view going the Canadian route amounts to becoming an accessory to extortion. I think our government needs to put an end to their thuggery by any means necessary.

So, the Canadians are practicing extortion by offering Americans cheaper, more available drugs. Got it.
That big red warning from the FDA might be related to Obamacare. In addition to the Louisiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback, one of the earlier acts of banditry on the part of Zero and his minions was a deal with BigPharma to stop allowing importation of cheap Canadian drugs if they refrained from opposing the ‘rats health care takeover.

Because it's simply un-American to deny Americans access to socialized Canadian health care!
I’ve ordered from several different Canadian on-line pharmacies. Two advantages: the Canadian price is often better, brand vs. brand and generic vs. generic. Also, drugs seem to go generic sooner outside of the US. I was able to order simvastatin (Zocor) from Canada for several years before it went generic here, for about 1/4 the US price for brand Zocor. The same is now true for Ranexa, available brand-only in the US but already available as generic "ranolazine" in Canada for about 1/4 the price of the US brand product. Try www.canadapharmacy.com; I’ve used them and several others. Plan on about four to five weeks for delivery, however.

Holy shit. These Freepers are
addlepated humps bona fide fucking experts when it comes to circumventing our galactically fucked perfectly functioning health care system to smuggle in prescription drugs illegally tend resourcefully to their own health care needs.
UPDATE: Gee thanks and all that for the rec list. I have been neglecting my poor wife all week long and I have a book to dig into, so I'm gonna say goodnight but I will check in tomorrow morning to dish out some mojo. Be well...eh!
