Has anyone used a Canadian pharmacy to order drugs cheaper? I am currently, looking into it and realize they don't do prescription transfers but will take a paper written RX from the doctor. Price is significantly cheaper for me.

The last time that I looked, my mail order pharmacy prices were significantly lower that several of the online Canadian pharmacies that I looked at. Of course, at this time, ALL of my drugs are available as generics.

Have you looked at GoodRx yet?


I contacted one of those Canadian pharmacies years ago and am still getting spam from them. They never stop.

I haven't found Canadian pharmacies to have significantly lower prices than U.S. pharmacies. Depending on the medication, you may find it cheaper in Canada, or even cheaper to buy it from a pharmacy in India or the U.K.
There is always a risk tho, so I wouldn't buy anything over the internet that my life depends on.

I wouldn’t put anything from India in my mouth or body. Just my feelings

I use a pharmacy in Israel for one of my medications. It saves me a LOT of money. https://www.israelpharm.com/

There is a pharmacy here in town that gets meds shipped from Canada (made in Canada) that I've already priced online. It is way cheaper for me, like half the price.

I used GoodRX for this last time which helped but the Canadian price is still half of that. GoodRX was $65 for 30 pills or two weeks worth for me and the Canadian price was $125 for 100 pills and even cheaper if I get 200. I was just unsure of the whole process and was wondering about anyone's experience with Canada. I would be going to their location here in town with a paper prescription just as soon as I can get it on Monday. Being the holidays, it might take 3+weeks to get here.

I just checked this website and the dosage of colchicine is .5 and I need .6mg so that won't work for me but thank you for the link!

Gads! Don't even get me going on this. I have ordered drugs from India with great results. But recently, my "man" told me he ran out of the man dude drugs and thus, things have slowed down. So.... since those sort of man dude drugs are so expensive in the states, why not use pharm drugs from India? I'd go to India for surgery if it was cheaper than the USA!

If you take generics, you are probably already putting something from India in your mouth and body.

India has a state-of-the-art pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. It is so good, that many pharmaceutical companies outsource to India, and have been having their products manufactured there for years.
