Canada Medicines

Nov 14, 2013

is safe and reliable to buy drugs like Atripla online from Canadian pharmacies?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Many Americans do buy their medications from Canadian pharmacies- the medications are typically manufactured by high quality generic companies in India and are much less expensive than paying full price here in the US. While technically illegal, I'm not aware of anyone being prosecuted for getting their HIV medications there.
