Just thought I'd pass along an experience. I recently was prescribed... hmmm. Let's just say a female ointment for menopausal women. I have catastrophic insurance that doesn't cover prescriptions, and this prescription is not "necessary," though it depends on what one deems necessary! I went to Costco to have it filled and whhhaaaat? $365 a tube, that is the size of my middle finger (appropriate). No generic option, so bummer. I looked into Canadian pharmacys (from a posting somewhere her on pinecam). I decided to take a shot.

I ordered 3 tubes from CanadaDrugPharmacy.com for the price of $70.00 (which included the approx $10.00 shipping). The process wasn't all that clear to me, so I called and got help, and they offered me a discount. Basically, you mail a check and the prescription and two weeks later, I got my prescription. You can fax a copy of the check and prescription and they'll start processing the order right away, otherwise you wait for them to receive the items in the mail.

Happy to report that my prescription is working, it was fast and it was affordable.

I had to go a year with no prescription coverage. If not for Canadian pharmacies, I would have lost my house.

Interesting, aspenleaf. I was leery of a scam. I've not had prescription coverage for some years, but I've never had expensive prescriptions. I'm quite happy with the outcome. I'm glad you didn't lose your house. :)

It would be great to know which pharmacy you ordered from.

I have used this pharmacy also & never had a problem. You just have to plan a little ahead - it generally takes about 2 weeks for the whole process. I got exactly the same items as in th U.S. You can always check the Canadian government web site for approved pharmacies to make sure you are not dealing with a fly-by-night outfit. My costs have been 1/3-1/4 of the U.S. costs.
And the U.S. doesn't care as long as you are only buying for your own use & 3 months or less at a time (in other words, they are only interested in someone buying in bulk for resale).

I use Canada Pharmacy for one of my cat's inhalers for asthma. here, $400, there $99. Something is up with credit card companies not being allowed to process prescriptions from Canada. while that sucks, I order and they take the money out of my checking account when it ships. I had to mail a check the first order, but no longer. REMEMBER it costs MORE to mail a letter to Canada, so find out before you mail :)

I use Northwest Pharmacy and have for 15+ years and have had no problem and much cheaper prices. You can't use your Visa or M/C anymore but just fax a check and they will deduct from your checking account. It does take about 2 weeks, so plan ahead. My doc has no problem with it and writes the scrips I need. My husband was in practice for 30 years and also had no problem with patients ordering from Canada. Some of the products are European so the packaging may be different but the product is the same.
