I have to be horizontal 99% of the time, unless I am using noodles under my arms in our heated pool.

I live in Toronto. I asked my pharmacist about this " Can a Canadian pharmacy fill a US Doctor's prescription ' ? His answer was a firm NO. He went on to tell me that it is not only unethical, but actually unlawful, to do that with out the US patient actually being seen in person by a Canadian Doctor.


SOME Canadian MD's will talk to a US MD over the phone, to confirm that the script is genuine, and to check the dosage. If the Canadian MD is satisfied he will issue a Canadian script. In that case , the US patient does not have to come to Canada, in person. The problem with this is obvious, which MD in Canada do you contact ?


A further point..........There are a number of online pharmacies that CLAIM to be located in Canada, but in fact are in the USA, or as far away as India. Buyer beware is the word in this case. The test is if the actual medication container has a Canada Drug Identification Number on the container.


Here is what that label shows.


link.Drug Identification Number (DIN)


This is from a Government of Canada website.

Do you take other natural COX 2 inhibitors? I just posted a list in the Alternative section.

You have to give things time to work, or at least help.
