Has anyone ever ordered perscriptions from this Canadian co.?

I'm on Medicare (no drug coverage) and what costs me $565US costs $200CAN. Is it legal?

TIA!

1. I have not, but I do remember customs conviscating a bunch of prescriptions
from Canada a few years ago... I don't know if they still do so, but you may want to factor in the risk... Good luck.

2. I have ordered from both Canada Drug and Canada Pharmacy.
Both were very nice to deal with.

4. ***UPDATE***
I just ordered 2 prescriptions on-line from Canadian Pharmacy and they cost $340 for a six month supply. If I had to buy them here, they would have cost $3,270 for a six month supply.

I am very, very happy!

Thanks for the tip Jane Austin and thereismore!

8. My prescriptions ...
My prescriptions cost me $175 a month here in Canada and my information is that they would be well over $800 in the United States. In addition to that, in Nova Scotia and Manitoba (provinces with NDP provincial governments) people who do not have a drug plan through employment, once they pay 3% of the net income (after tax deductions - average tax deductions in Canada are $20,000 - the personal deduction which everyone gets is $11,000 alone), the province pays 80% of the remainder. The prescriptions which cost me $175 a month, after I pay 3% of my net income on prescriptions, cost me $35, and would cost you well over $800 in the United States

10. Curious why don't you have the drug coverage?..If you are on
limited income the premium is very low and in many cases the copay is also very low..Worth Checking out. A friend of mine has medicare advantage and my drug copay is a fraction of what they pay.
