Ordering Meds

Has anyone ever ordered meds from a canadian pharmacy? do they require a script for every drug you order? which ones are the most trustworthy? how do you pay? thanks for any help.

I have been ordering meds from CanadaDrugs.com for about a year with no problems. I have limited my orders to meds that are the most expensive, and have saved about 50% on those. It is now cheaper for me to drop my drug insurance completely and just shop where prices are the lowest (here or from Canada).

I have been told that importation of these drugs is not strictly legal, but no one seems to be enforcing this restriction. The drugs I get are usually manufactured in foreign plants owned by the same major US drug companies that I used to by from, and are mailed directly from central overseas warehouses. CanadaDrugs.com is a licensed Canadian firm and requires that a prescription be mailed to them from your doctor. They have pharmacists on call to answer any questions.

They accept personal checks, money transfers from your bank, or credit cards. I used credit cards at first, but last month my credit card company started charging me about $4.00 for foreign transactions, so I will probably just mail a check next time.

Interesting? Here are two quotes from their homepage

Quote:
CanadaDrugs.com is licensed in the province of Manitoba by the Manitoba
Pharmaceutical Association. License Number 32195
Quote:
Manitoba pharmacists are not permitted to fill US physicians' prescriptions. The can only fill prescriptions issued by a physician licensed in a province or territory of Canada.
And yet they fill your's? How do you get around that?

I have no idea of the legal mechanisms on either side of the border.

sounds like canada is turning a blind eye to the drug buying.
