Prescription Drugs From Canada. Pharmacy Online or Pharmacy in Canada?

If you are reading this article it is because you are thinking of buying your prescription medications from a Canadian pharmacy. You may have heard that Canadian pharmacies sell their drugs 50-80% cheaper than ones in the U.S. The reason that the prices are so much cheaper in Canada is that over there prescription medicines have price limits imposed on them. In fact, the United States is one of the only industrialized countries in the world not to use price-limits on prescription medicines. Accordingly, Americans pay some of the highest prices anywhere for their medications. A recent poll, carried out on behalf of The Wall Street Journal, showed that more than 80% of Americans were in favor of importing drugs from Canada and more than one in ten Americans already do so. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said that it does not intend to go after individuals buying prescription medications from Canada. And the State of Michigan has been running seniors, free of charge, into Canada to obtain their drugs, as reported on CBS News. The question for you is, when buying prescription medications from Canada, do you use a pharmacy online or make the trip yourself into Canada?
