I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at age 35. I am now 68 years old and on Medicare. Every day of my life I have had to take a drug named Asacol HD, and this will be something I will have to do for the rest of my life. I am enrolled in a Medicare Part D plan with Humana, which is the least expensive provider for other maintenance drugs I need to take. But if I was to add Asacol HD as a drug for me to obtain through my Humana drug plan, my out of pocket cost for this one drug alone would exceed $2,117 for a 90-day supply. And other Part D drug plans are even more costly. Thankfully, I have been buying this particular drug, Asacol HD, from a reputable Canadian online pharmacy for the last couple of years, but it has cost me only $158 for a 90-day supply. As you can see, this is a huge difference! If the ability to buy prescription drugs from Canada is taken away, I - and millions of other seniors - will suffer considerable financial hardship. Please, don’t take this away from us!
I have insurance coverage for medications. I need to use the brand-name version of one of the medications. For many years my insurance allowed this, at considerable cost ($100 per 90 day supply). Over the last year they disallowed this option. Out of pocket for this medication is about $4,000 last time I checked. By ordering from a Canadian pharmacy I can get the medication I need for under $200. We consumers need this option to allow us to get the medications we need at reasonable cost. There's no logical reason for the $4000/$200 discrepancy in price.
Please allow me to continue to get some drug prescriptions filled through [an online pharmacy in Canada]. I am not able to afford the current pharmacy prices at my local drugstore in California. Canada has been a life saver for me and some other members of my family. Because I am elderly and my budget is very limited, please let me have the freedom to purchase needed items for my health from a reputable source. My life depends on it.
Having the option to get affordable drugs is very important to me and my family. I support the option of having options
My prescription in the US cost 110.00 per pill. Outrageous. The generic version was discontinued and with my insurance it would still be over 400.00. What makes this so horrific is that it was my tax dollars that paid the research to discover this medication and politicians don't care because they have my tax money to buy everything they need.
I imported Xarelto 15MG Blood Thinner 90 Pills for 3 Months for around USA 435.00 Total for 3-month from Canada. The exact same medicine and quantity from USA Pharmacy it costs $1250.00 the savings is over $800.00 honestly I cannot afford the American Pharmaceutical Prices. Not taking Xarelto 15 MG will cause my AFIB to cause a STROKE.
I’m 100% satisfied with the costumer service from the Canadian pharmacy, my product arrived on time. And is all I was expecting to get for my money. Thank you very much.
My Doctor will not issue prescriptions to [an online pharmacy in Canada] because he is afraid it is illegal. If he had I would have spent $30 instead of $270. It is a travesty how the US politics has US drug companies in it's back pocket.
I was diagnosed with environmental allergies and prescribed Advair. My prescription drug plan covers this medication but my copay was $272 for one month. I contacted a reputable online pharmacy to obtain Advair at a reasonable price. I paid $272 for three months. Thankfully, our Minnesota Senators Klobuchar and Franken support personal importation of prescription drugs. If we want to reform health care I believe we should start with the high cost of prescription drugs.
I have used Canada for prescriptions that are not covered by my insurance, which are too expensive for me to purchase in the US. I have been very happy with the medications I have received from Canada. If I am no longer able to receive some of my medications from Canada, it would be a detrimental to my health.
