Now that Canadadrugs.com has been caught doing truly awful things, I don't trust them, nor do I want to give them another dime of our money. Canadian pharmacy fined $34 million for illegal imports | News & Observer

DH takes one cholesterol med that is not available with a generic in the US and, if we bought it through his Part D Medicare plan, would put him in the donut hole in 5 months. We've had zero trouble with it from Canada Drugs, and yes, his cholesterol has come down considerably because of this drug.

So - those of you who use Canada Drugs, are you going elsewhere? What alternatives are there?

I never used CD. I order from NorthDrugStore.com

I've been getting Zetia and Crestor (now that they are generically available, I will order from my US mail order company)

I have connections at The College of Pharmacy and another toxicologist (I am a pharmacist) and had random samples tested and verified over the past 5 years. What I received was the real McCoy

Prices and shipping were excellent

Thanks VERY much for the recommendation.

You said one other thing that might make me really happy. Did you say ZETIA has become available as a generic in the US? That's the culprit that started this whole thing with buying it in Canada to avoid him going into the donut hole.

Is it widely available?

Ezetimibe, the generic of Zetia, has been available in the US since late 2016.

Thanks. Not on the mailorder we had last year for DH's Part D, and not at the local Costco or Walmart. Hopefully, in 2018, they DO have it.

Thanks for the heads up!

Out of curousity, through my drug coverage plan, I checked online selecting a random Costco and Walmart in Raleigh, NC (your location). It indicated that both carry ezetimibe. And at Costco, a 90-day suppy (1 pill/day), was under $10.00.

Are you sure itís not available?
