I am a type 2 diabetic. Recently I became unable to tolerate the best oral medication and had to switch to one which my doctor says is not as efficient. As a result she also prescribed Januvia for me. I filled the first prescription. $362 dollars for 30 pills/days. Today I ordered 112 pills/days from a Canadian [pharmacy] that will be filled in the UK. The price? $342! Until our healthcare comes under control, and the drug companies cease to rip us off, I NEED this service. It makes the difference for me because I wouldn't be able to own a car if I had to continue to pay huge drug bills. Please make it possible for me to continue this importation. Actually....maybe you could encourage everyone to use it until the USA drug companies see reason.

My husband and I are on a fixed income. If my rights are taken away from me and I cannot order prescriptions this way I will not be able to afford them. We always check prices at local places and even with GoodRx the prices are three times as much.

My cost of the generic medication, Clomipramine (Anafranil) 90 day supply is $485 with my Rx insurance and ranges from $700 to $950 without insurance. This medication has been on the market for decades and is not a life-saving drug, which makes the cost
hike impossible to understand. I have been taking this medication for 20 years and never paid that much. I started using a [Canadian pharmacy] as a safe and cost-effective solution. Thank you.

I purchased medications for my pets though a [Canadian pharmacy]. Much more affordable than paying full price without insurance in the US - makes taking care of my pets more affordable.

I have been on Gleevec for the last nine years. At over $10,000 a month I would never have been able to afford it without insurance from my work place. Now that I am retired, there is no Medicare Part D plan that would make this affordable. Personal Prescription Importation is a life saver for me.

Even with prescription drug coverage the cost of two of my medications is double the price of purchasing them from Canada. I'm retired with a limited fixed income and every penny counts. I'm grateful for Canadian pharmacies!

Canadian drugs are 50% cheaper at least!

The cost of my HBP medication has risen to a ridiculous amount. Even with my insurance paying a portion. This drug has been around for years and there is no reason for it to be so expensive other than greed.

I am a former Canadian citizen, now a Naturalized American citizen, retired and living in the USA on a fixed income. Though I qualify for US Medicare Part D (Drugs), and have such a plan which provides me with most of the generic medications I need at a reasonable price, some of my prescriptions are either not covered by my plan, or are still so expensive after coverage that I benefit from ordering them from [a Canadian pharmacy]. In one case, the [Canadian pharmacy] price is fully 2/3 cheaper than its US equivalent - that's a saving of $200.00 every 90 days for a single prescription! In another case, the exact same drug from the same manufacturer costs less than half its US price, when ordered from Canada. I don't pretend to understand the political and economic arguments for banning importation of my prescriptions from Canada - but I certainly don't believe that restricting my access to safe, affordable medication will be of any benefit to me, or others like me.

I am very thankful for being able to order from [a Canadian Pharmacy]. I am not able [to pay for my medications as] my insurance does not cover the prescription brand.
