Kurt a lot of doctors will give you your medicine if you can't afford it. Talk to your doctor about it. Worst thing they can do is say no.

I have a friend that buys some of his meds over seas. I don't know anything about it but you could look around on the net.

More than just those. A few years ago I looked up lower cost drugs for them that made a substantial savings, at maybe a dozen drugstores. And, of course, can't remember the name now. But a bit of google searching should turn it up.

Some years ago one of my meds jumped from something like $27 a month, to something like $180. I was able to get it thru Express Scripts for just the cost of shipping. Don't know if you would be eligible for that tho, I am retired military, so eligible.

So, here's the way it works up here, N. of 49.
The various Provincial Govt's contract with legitimate Pharmaceutical companies to supply drugs at bulk contract prices. That's why it's less expensive up here. The drugstores (Pharmacists) get paid a dispensing fee for every prescription they fill; they don't get a markup on the drugs themselves. Obviously OTC stuff is a different story.
The process may vary from Province to Province.
Here in BC...

I buy from:

https://www.northwestpharmacy.com/

I've used them for about 3 years now. My doctor recommended them. Like any reputable pharmacy, they will insist on a prescription from your doctor, which the doc can fax to them.

Check with the manufacturer. I have seen statements on TV that is you can't afford your medicine, they can help.
