Canadian drugs, eh?

535 ratings | 7946 views
There is no shortage of online pharmacies out there who claim to be able to provide cheap, quality pharmaceuticals from Canada. There is likewise no shortage of people who actually believe that these sites routinely provide pharmaceutical products that are not substandard, adulterated or just simply counterfeit. Herein we briefly discuss the phenomenon of online "Canadian" pharmacies. We do not for one minute wish to represent that the companies mentioned herein, or any other online pharmacy, is any sort of criminal enterprise. We are quite certain that somewhere out there is an online pharmacy which provides high-quality, cheap and effective drugs that are produced under stringently regulated conditions. As soon as we find it, we'll let you know.

Hello Dr Conway, are you planning to ever make a sequel to "Science, pseudoscience and outright scheisse"? There is a "Doctor" Steven Gundry. He is fascinating, especially for advocating outright scheisse enemas, or "excrement transplantation" as a rejuvenation method. According to an interview on Youtube, he is also friends with an outright scheisse luminary "Doctor" Mehmet Oz. Interestingly an "Extract of the excrement of a Bulgarian peasant" was a pill a certain "Doctor" Theodor Morell, prescribed and administered to Hitler. Some things never change...

I liked your presentation except for the ending part, the FDA is an enemy to the American People. They approve drugs that are dangerous, and take bribes from the Pharmaceutical giants etc.. all in the interests of making money off of people, not much different than the miscreant you described in your video.

Dr. Conway, I really, really enjoy your content and I love how you explain the science of these things. I really really wish you would put out more content. I am sure you have a lot of stuff to do as it is, but I think these videos could help educate people and spread good will to our brothers and sisters across the planet. Please consider making more videos and continue fighting the good fight.

Somehow they got my email about ten years ago and I'm still getting email from them no matter how many times I flag them as spam and report them as a phishing scam. They must come up with several new email addresses every week.

Maybe an unintended consequence of this video: It just shows how desperate American patients are, and how broken the American health system is when you can't even afford the medicine you need to survive or just to get better.

So tell me how the FDA approved things like codeine and oxycontin that people have become dependent on? Also how do Ph.D.s like yourself prescribe these things knowing that they can do more harm than good? One other thing how can doctors and the FDA approve things that contain opiates or things that contain methamphetamines like ritalin? What other drugs will they approve of that we as United States citizens will become dependent on and shell out for?
Chris Oscelot (15 days ago)
Ritalin is not methamphetamine, Desoxyn is the prescription name for methamphetamine.
Nate D So true.

The other problem is that taxation makes drugs 10 times more expensive just because they are sold in the US. And these drugs are the exact same products by the same pharmaceuticals but cheaper in any other country.
Roman Roman (5 days ago)
Just look at health spendings table https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_total_health_expenditure_per_capita. US spend 2 (twice) as much for health care than Canada, yet Americans still live 3 years less in average. Look at Greece, they spend 4 time less per capita, but live 8 (!) years more. For the most part it is all due to FDA and the private health-care industry. Capitalism and health-care don't really work well together.
Zylox Dragon (21 days ago)
I've seen/heard a lot of people state that it's more expensive in the US. I've never seen any actual reports/studies though that show this (and I've always been too lazy to actually research it). It's one of those things that "everyone knows", and sadly something that no one will believe otherwise because of our own ignorance.
Falbert Forester (1 month ago)
Not so. It's not taxation - Canada has much higher effective tax rates than the USA - almost 50% more by some measures, and yet has lower drug prices for the same product, made in the same facilities in the USA. This is also true for much of the EU. Overseas manufacturers of certain generic drugs also often offer pills that are certified by the FDA to have the same quality and quantity of drug in them, at a tenth of the price of the brand name. Pfizer's own Viagra is even available in a generic, made by Pfizer!!! at less than half the price per pill of the brand name. It's all combination of greed and "charging what the market will bear".

guess what???the sooner we get rid of quacks like those you support the better. People need to eat right, sleep right and exercise. The drugs are an effect of those issues. Trillions of dollars are made by the real criminals who have created the problems and now treat it, being supported by crooks like you.

I don't think it's as easy as that though. If things like that occured say, 1% of the time, just like you can make your own search at home, the government must have some way to run a fiscal work and find out if their people are being sold fake drugs. Im not canadian or american, so I dont know how things work, but I think there's probably more to it than "theyre not approved by fda=its rat poison".
Lord Garth (2 months ago)
It’s a bit more work but you can find a real Canadian pharmacy doing business in Canada with a provincial license. Also if you are close enough you can just pick your scripts up at a retail location.

I am a skeptic of the first order. My trust of the FDA is seriously damaged by everything from its statements on weed (schedule 1 BULL SHIT) to the efficacy of medication approved in EU countries, Canada etc as not being American quality or safety. Again BULL SHIT. The FDA sometimes comes across as being some political too to be used in the interest of Pharma first and patients second.

you fucking deluded mole rat.... id like to see a video on the damage that all your "prescribed: drugs have done to your body and many others. They are the same things just sold in different packaging and labeled legal by a big company who sells it for 10 times more for profit. That's why they want Canadian outlets and other sources gone ... money its always money and don't thinks its anything else. One day simple medication will only be available for the wealthy and you'll have wished you'd have put your PHD to use in researching alternative forms of self medication so that people aren't so reliant on these big chain outlets for health care.

As if this PHD has a CHOICE of researching alternate medicine witch don't fit the OLIGOPOLY You make ZEROS SENSE to any one from the older generation so just shut the fuck up. t-_-t Fucking inane ignoramus fool.
I still find it funny how the US doesn't have free medical care *as a choice* for it's people, the only 'developed' nation that doesn't do that. Mainly because the tax dollars you pay go to other things such as fuelling unjustified wars and what not

dog rollinson In every society the sheeple are the majority and they can hardly change their opinion that the government has implanted, so it will be hard for them to wake up and demand for in this ex. better food quality. P.s. It's a huge deal for the mass producers, cuz u know, it's way cheaper to make synthetic products
dog rollinson (2 months ago)
i do agree with that statement my initial comment i did lack that point of how the shady sellers have there own problem, but i didn't like the viewpoint that Samuel has which seems to be that you can only trust drugs and medication if they come from a legal outlet such as a heal;th care system or pharmacy which is absolutely the worst thing. Just because something is government approved as safe for use and consumption doesn't mean it is, look at the way the food industry works with all the drugs and sugars they pump into everything purposely to sell it for a much higher price and then driving up the price of natural produce that don't have these synthetic elements in them. in my opinion there needs to be some serious research done into how people can look after themselves at home without the need for overpriced products that generally just work on the placebo effect with many of the positives wearing off within a month

Tristana Wild (2 months ago)
Unc-, err, Conway– Drugs may be approved for use in countries outside of the United States, yet not approved by the FDA here. It'd be a fallacy based on American exceptionalism to therefore claim that said drugs are unsafe or of no use. Such is the case with the aforementioned domperidone, cyproterone acetate and other drugs- they have known medical uses but are not approved in the United States. It is good to be skeptical of online pharmacies and to understand the potential financial, legal and health risks of purchasing from them. They aren't completely without purpose, though, and chemistry can offer some means of determining if what you receive is what you were told it was.

bobhatesrainbows (2 months ago)
Andreas Handin Berntsson The reason to lower a fever is that the fever itself may kill you or give you sever brain damage. If a fever is not severe then there is no reason to lower it.

"oOoo birth defects" -- yeah, I'm betting they were filling acutane perscriptions for zitty youths. Forget about exfoliation and moisturizing take this toxic acne medicine that can give your unborn fetus 8 limbs. I'd sooner DIY things in Tijuana but I'm also not mainlining the IP vaults from Wyeth and Pfizer just yet so we're ok. Mostly, I'd think demanding factory seals is pretty standard. It's not like pharmacies in Walmart just get giant boxes filled with stamped tablets and scoop them into bottles. Those orange tubes are easier for people to use. If you're buying unmarked Rx that way, reconsider your options.

While you make a good point in reviewing a webpage before buying there, it sounds for me a bit strange that you point your decision on the FDA warnings. While these aren't irrelevant, and these examples are somewhat shady, I want to point out (just for the Fairness) that non-regulated products in the US can be regulated ones in Canda. The FDA is only the regulation Agency for the US and not the Canadian Equivalent which goes by the Name Health Canda. One example be found here: http://healthydebate.ca/opinions/title-health-canada-and-the-fda-two-peas-from-different-pods Personally speaking, I wouldn't trust some shady online pharmacy but go to a real one with a local, but anyway, there are also reasons why you are only allowed to buy certain drugs with a recipe (at least here in Germany), and no not everyone knows how to handle drugs, especially when they comes in different doses!

ive seen those sort of sites before and most of the time theyre actually a lot more expensive then in an actual pharmacy i saw a box of 6 500ML capsules of ibuprofen on an online pharmacy for £3.99 and when i went to my local pharmacy i got the same product for £1 and its an over the counter drug too and one of the best over the counter pain relief drugs going

A lot of doctors might recommend name brand drugs, but the generic ones are just as effective and contain the same components, as they have to by law in the US. So one way of shaving costs is to ask if there are generic versions of the prescriptions you need.
SkyWolfAlpha (1 year ago)
Like Striker suggested, talk to your doctor. I've had to have that conversation before. They recommend something they think would work -best- for me, but check and my insurance won't cover it, so they write a script for something similar, and advise me to, if/when I'm able, get the one they originally recommended. I've also had a convo with a doctor about a medication that had ceased US production. I knew where it could be gotten online, but to get it legally, I'd need a doctor's prescription. The doctor refused, mainly because they weren't comfortable not knowing the source of the medication - any time it's from outside the US, you can't be assured it will meet US standards. Here's another thing to consider with out of country scripts: is the medication you need worth gambling that it might be something to make your condition worse? You might be playing pill roulette.

Consult their doctors and pharmacists for viable alternatives, seek out state assistance programs, and write to your representatives to improve the healthcare system.
