Canadian Drug Prices vs. U.S. Drug Prices

In recent years, the cost of buying prescription medication in the United States has continually increased. Between 2008 and 2016, the cost of brand-name prescription drugs increased by approximately nine percent annually. Medicare and private insurance companies in the U.S. cover a small amount of the cost of prescription drugs, however, the high cost of drugs is ultimately passed down to the public. For many Americans without insurance coverage this is an out-of-pocket expense that many families cannot afford. As a result, Americans have started to purchase their prescription medications online from Canadian pharmacies like Canada Pharmacy.

How Canadian Pharmacy Prices Compare

Compared to the United States, Canadian drug prices are much lower than the US pharmacy price for the same brand name medication. Online Canadian pharmacies sell medication at lower Canadian pharmacy prices, saving customers up to 80% on their prescription drugs. A recent Census population report estimates that over 19 million U.S residents buy their medication from Canada or another country to save money. Pharmacies like Canada Pharmacy offer better Canadian pharmacy prices and ship the product directly to the customers door.

U.S Pharmacy Prices vs. Canada Pharmacy Prices

Looking at the cost of the most popular prescription medication, Canadian pharmacy prices are consistently lower than the price of other U.S. pharmacies. For example, you can buy eight 20mg tablets of Cialis from our online pharmacy for $166.00, which is considerably lower than the average price of $600 at a local US pharmacy. This price difference is the same for another popular medication, Viagra . You can purchase twelve 100mg tablets on our website for $159.00, compared to the average price of $733.20 from a pharmacy in the United States. This equates to a savings of over $600 on your medication when you purchase from a Canadian online retailer like Canada Pharmacy.
