It discusses how the rising cost of medications means a significant number of patients are skipping doses altogether. This is something we have been aware of for many years. What caught our attention, however, is that the article is not about Americans. It is about Australians who are also feeling the sting of higher drug prices. The article quotes medical ethics researcher Dr. Narcyz Ghinea and cites his recently published paper in the prestigious medical journal, the BMJ. Dr. Ghinea argues that doctors should have a responsibility to help patients safely source cheaper medications online from abroad.

While shrewdly warning that, “there are big incentives for unscrupulous operators willing to take advantage of people looking for cheaper medicines … [and the] biggest problem is that [their] drugs either don’t contain any of the active ingredient or at least not enough of it to be effective”, the article notes that many doctors are already helping their patients find safe and affordable sources of medications internationally. Dr. Ghinea acknowledges that “‘[o]f course, there are risks that need to be considered. But patients missing out on treatment they need because of cost is also risky.’”

Keep Your Access to Safe Medications from Canada and Abroad
The U.S. chain drugstore and Big Pharma industry have countless high-priced proxies lobbying Congress and Senate to shut down your lower cost drug importation from Canada and abroad. Many of our customers will remember how close they came to succeeding last year with the Senate’s proposed DRUGS Act, which was aimed at cutting off Americans’ access to international and Canadian online pharmacies that sell the same safe medications at a fraction of Big Pharma’s U.S. prices.
