Prescription Drugs From Canada


Next »


Before reading this article, it is advisable to read about purchasing prescription drugs outside of the U.S. in general. See Purchasing Prescription Drugs Outside Of The U.S.

Drugs prices are usually (though not always) much lower in Canada than in the United States. This is mainly because Canada regulates drug prices.

As compared to purchasing drugs from our other neighbor, Mexico, purchasing drugs in Canada is considered to be less risky than Mexico because the Canadian regulatory system is more like our own. For instance, the Canadian distribution system is more tightly controlled than the U.S. system. Also, Canadian pharmacies require a doctor's prescription.

Drugs from Canada can be purchased a variety of ways:

  • By physically going to Canada.
  • Via the internet.
  • By calling a pharmacy in Canada directly. 
  • By using one of the new companies that have sprung up in the U.S. to import drugs from Canada.

See the other sections of this article for more information about each of these subjects.
