Sometimes, I run out of medicines before I remember to call them in. I try to keep a week's supply on hand. That is recommended for ermerginces.

I've used mail order for years with very few problems. They've tried to sneak a generic in a couple of times but that's about it. I've taken advantage of the automatic refill option and they actually send me a recorded phone message to let me know that I have a refill that is getting ready to be shipped and a date to cancel by if I don't want them to send it.
The price difference is unreal. I was going to get my first KeppraXR script filled at CVS but a one mont supply was over $400. I got a 3 month supply for $40 from Express Scripts.

I realise that these must be very useful for you over in the US, and there are of course lots of legitimate ones..

I just want to say, that false 'Canadian Pharmacys' are one of the biggest spam/scams on the net- just as big as cheap Viagra/penis extenders/false Rolexes etc..

Use the few real ones out there by all means- and save yourself loads- just don't respond to the spam that gets sent to you in your inbox..

I use a local pharmacy as I'm on disability and only have to pay $5.00 each for my Prescriptions. If I didn't live in Canada and had to pay full price, I might consider mail-order.

Hi Bernard,

I use my local pharmacy. My employer had me on a mail order pharmacy but after I found out they were sued for over $15 million and were increasing the prices of meds for customers so they could pocket the money I got out of it. Also there are over 2000 complaints with this company. Never again will I use this mail order group. Wishing you well and May God Bless You!

I believe my huge corporation owns the mail order company they force us to use for many drugs...

Or just up charge you for them at your local spot. Either or

Our insurance requires use of a mail order pharmacy for medications taken for chronic illnesses. The one that they use--OptumRx--is NOT good! My 100mg Topamax tablets & 1mg folic acid tablets are so similar in size and color that a person could easily mix them up.

Doing mail order pharmacy

Getting my keppra by mail works for me since I stopped driving. Cost is less than taxi to drug store. Biggest worry is getting meds lost/stolen in mail, or even my mailbox, which has not yet occurred in my year with this arrangement.

My generic lamotrigine is from an Indian company. A lot are. I wouldn't worry. When I go to India or Brazil I try to load up with any medications I'm taking if they have them. (Haven't been since epilepsy.)

I see I last posted here five years ago when I was getting my meds from a shitty mail order pharmacy.

Now I work at a mail order pharmacy and my meds get dropped off at my desk. I see everything first hand and if other places were run like the one I'm at, I would be happy to order from them. Except here, if someone makes a mistake, I don't have to threaten to kick their ass over the phone, I just go and kick their ass in person. I also have a bunch of pharmacists I can take hostage until they answer all my questions. :D

Foundation Care Pharmacy. We will be the primary suppliers of spritam, I believe. We specialize in Cystic Fibrosis, but we are full service.
