    Plan to import cheaper Canadian drugs advances under Trump

    Plan to import cheaper Canadian drugs advances under Trump

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Trump administration, eager to show progress on prescription drug costs, on Wednesday moved forward with its plan to allow Americans to safely and legally get access to lower-priced medicines from abroad.

    But patients are unlikely to see quick relief on prices, even in states such as Florida that are pursuing their own import plans. Meanwhile, major legislation to lower costs for seniors has gotten bogged down in a Congress consumed by the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

    A lot of seniors take daily bus trips to visit Canadian pharmacies.

    When I used to weekend in Tijuana, I'd open & inspect every package of pills. Expect to get ripped off. It's an inevitable result of poverty.

    Not poor, not uninsured and not ordering drugs from Canada so I should be fine.

    I had to take a Canadian drug for a whilee because it was cheaper than getting the same one from an American pharmacy. The nurse practitioner warned me it is actually made in India, which has lower quality standards than the FDA, and imported to Canada. Yes, I did notice a difference. Instead of making pills the next size up a little bigger, they double the dimesions, so I had to cut them in half.
