I'm glad you were able to get a vial of Humalog to hold you over for a few weeks.
Canada has their own regulatory procedures very similar to the the U.S. FDA. The FDA has declared it is illegal to import drugs from other countries because even though the medications may be approved in the U.S., the pharmacies have not been approved by the FDA. However Canada has their own regulatory procedures that are very similar. In some cases, the medications are actually produced in the same facilities as those distributed in the U.S.
I know a number of people I trust who have used Canadian based internet pharmacies. Many sites you can find on the internet may not be safe but there are 2 I am going to recommend based on the repeated experiences of people I know and trust.
Canada Drugs Online (www.canadadrugsonline.com
) is very trustworthy. Their price for Humalog is $45 for one 10 ml vial, $119 for 3 vials, and $179 for 5 vials. They will fill a 3 month supply at one time so if you go this route, the next time you get a prescription ask your doctor to write for 3 months. (If you have a one month prescription with refills on it, they will fill the refills up front if you ask them to.) Shipping is $10 per order. Their normal delivery time is between 5 and 18 days but they cannot guarantee the postal service. The fastest way to order is to do it online, print the order and fax it with your prescription to them. (They will accept the fax from you or your doctor even though the form says it must be from your doctor.)
Cross Border Pharmacy (www.crossborderpharmacy.com
) is also very reliable. Their price for a 10 ml vial of Humalog is $53 and shipping is $9.95. Their delivery estimate is up to 21 days. They have the same ordering procedures and the 3 month supply guideline is the same as above.
