Pharmacy Costs VS. Drugs Through the Mail – A Price Comparison

As an American consumer of prescription drugs, you’re already caught in a web of profit, lobbying, and industry law. Stuck between congress, the insurance companies, and the drug makers themselves, the prices you pay as an American are higher by far than in most other countries on Earth.

But unfair pricing practices and the ambivalence of our elected officials can’t change one simple fact: we need the drugs we need. The Canadian Drugstore offers those medications from other countries at more affordable prices, shipped directly to you in 90-day supplies.

So, how much can we save you on some of the most popular prescription medications? Let’s take a look.

Prozac

For the last three decades, Prozac has helped countless people battle depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and other life-altering ailments. To the patients who need it, Prozac is anything but optional, making the prices some pharmacies charge especially outrageous.

Pharmacy Average

10mg Brand Name: 100 units @ $17.14 per unit totaling $1,714.35

20mg Brand Name: 100 units @ $17.62 per unit totaling $1,762.38

Canadian Drugstore

10mg Generic: 100 units @ $1.42 per unit totaling $141.80

20mg Brand Name: 48 units @ $2.88 per unit totaling $138.24

Bottom Line

The difference in prices between pharmacy averages and The Canadian Drugstore is drastic here. The Canadian Drugstore can save consumers over $1,500 per 100 units on the 10mg tablets and nearly that same $1,500 on the 20mg tablets.

Cialis & Viagra

When talking about “quality of life” medications, the issue of erectile dysfunction is commonly overlooked. But a healthy sex life is part of a healthy life—period. Too often, these quality of life drugs are overpriced simply because the manufacturers, insurance companies, and pharmacies know how much you’re willing to pay for intimacy. Thankfully, alternatives to pharmacies exist.

Pharmacy Average

Brand Name Cialis/Viagra: $12-$70 per unit for an average of $41 per unit

Canadian Drugstore

20mg Brand Name Cialis: 8 units @ $15.5 per unit totaling $124.00

100mg Brand Name Viagra: 8 units @ $10.99 per unit totaling $87.92

100mg Generic Viagra: 8 units @ $1.87 per unit totaling $14.96

Bottom Line

Depending on strength, brand names vs. generics, and overall quantity, The Canadian Drugstore can save consumers anywhere from $25 to $40 per unit on Cialis/Viagra or their generic alternatives.

Smoking Cessation

Considering that insurance companies make less money when you’re sick, you’d think that smoking cessation aids would be more widely covered by providers. Unfortunately, while insurance companies may benefit in the long run from smoking cessation aids, pharmacies and drug makers see higher profits when you’re sick. 

Medications like Zyban, therefore, may be more expensive to come by than common sense would indicate.

Pharmacy Average

150mg Brand Name: 60 units @ $2.34 per unit totaling $140.40

Canadian Drugstore

150mg Brand Name: 60 units @ $1.80 per unit totaling $108.00

Bottom Line

The Canadian Drugstore can save consumers up to 54 cents per unit or $32.40 for a month’s supply.

Enrich Yourself

When you choose to pay the outrageous prices set by American pharmacies, you’re enriching the pharmacy, the insurance companies, the drug manufacturers, and the politicians they pay to keep your drugs as expensive as they are. Don’t enrich these people. Enrich yourself by purchasing affordable medication from The Canadian Drugstore.
