Thankful to have the Med I needed but could not afford.
The same med in the US is beyond the reach of most of us. I was quoted a price $1400 for 90 pills.The same drug was priced @ $200 for 150 pills. I was extremely pleased. Jim Collins

Fantastic, Effective Inexpensive Substitute!!
I first received an Rx for this generic equivalent to Entocort about 6 years ago and had my physician call it into Walmart because of the mailing delay getting it from Canada Pharmacy. I checked the price online which was $68 for 100 - Walmart was $1,320 for 90!!! This is not a fabricated story! I've been using it ever since and recommended it to many others who are delighted with it.

Pain relief
Glad to have this medication. Has certainly decreased my abdominal pain. Seems to do what it was intended to do. Can't really say there have been any unpleasant side effects .

A Savings on prescription medicine that can't be beat in the USA
I've tried other Canadian pharmacies but the waiting period after you order the product is 6 to 8 weeks. With Canadian Pharmacy the turn around time was about 10 days, which other Canadian competitors can't beat. I've given out the pharmacy's name out to friends who are struggling with the cost of American distributors.

Prescriptions with Canada Pharmacy
Very well pleased with Canada Pharmacy, very efficient and polite. Mailing was slower than was anticipated but after receiving the medication, have been more than pleased with outcome. I just need to allow more time when ordering refill and I do plan to use them in the future. Would highly recommend.

Great Product!
This is a wonderful product and has allowed me to return to my normal routine without having bowel issues. It has worked well for me when nothing else seemed to do so. If I could not order this through the Canada Pharmacy, I would not be able to afford it because it is a costly drug.

Good results
I am taking budesonide for ulcerative colitis. Previously I had taken Lialda, which made me feel worse. The only negative thing that I have experienced with the budesonide is that it seems to stimulate my appitite; but since I am not overweight, this has not been a major concern for me.

Budensonide reveiew
When someone has a very expensive drug I let them know about Canada Pharmacy. Insurance sometimes doesn't cover certain drugs so we need an alternative. The service is good and timely. Follow up calls have been made to assure all is correct. I appreciate that so much. Sharon

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
