Seniors Save Big Buying Prescription Meds Online from Canada

June 19, 2024 | by DoctorSolve

The skyrocketing costs of prescription drugs have forced many people, especially seniors, to take health risks. To save money, some people are stockpiling medications and constantly searching for a safe, lower-priced alternative. 

According to DoctorSolve co-founder Paul Zickler, M.D., one of the best solutions may be Internet-based Canadian pharmacies. 

Zickler sites a new report released by the U.S. General Accounting Office suggests that patients purchasing prescriptions from online Canadian pharmacies are getting the same, or better, medication for less money.  

Of the 18 Canadian Web sites the report evaluated, all required consumers to supply a physician-written prescription, compared to only five of the 29 U.S. pharmacies. Typical savings range between 40 and 70 percent. 

“For seniors and other medication-dependent people, the safety and significant savings are a winning combination. At least for now, they can stop stockpiling,” says Zickler. 

To order, patients just need to submit an order form and valid prescription via fax or phone. A nurse will call to verify the information, and then the order is processed. Once payment is made by credit card, the medications are mailed. 

When St. Louis, Miss., resident Kathyln Goedeker Wieland’s diabetic father suffered from a life-threatening seizure after taking expired insulin, she didn’t know what to do. Her father had lost his medical benefits and stockpiled the medication because he could not afford it. 

Wieland found DoctorSolve in a list of top-ranked pharmacies and gave them a call. 

“My parents and I were impressed by the call from the doctor and nurse checking out their health and need for their medications.  

Shortly after, the first medications arrived, and the savings were significant (nearly 40 percent),” says Wieland.
