Seniors use e-mail to cut drug costs
ROCHESTER, NYThousands of U.S. senior citizens have found legitimate e-mail order links to the worlds lowest prices on prescription drugs, and they are now having their prescriptions filled by licensed pharmacies abroad. Previously, seniors had to travel to Canada or Mexico to obtain their prescriptions for pennies on the dollaruntil now. In a show of support for Americans who cannot afford their prescription drugs, Congress passed an amendment recognizing the right of all consumers to have their prescriptions filled by international pharmacies.
U.S. seniors are now able to use e-mail to fill their prescriptions abroad according to FDA guidelines, says M. J. McCormick, developer of www.medicines.md. The senior-focused website offers free access to regularly updated international price lists for the 120 most popular brand name prescription drugs, as well as more than 1300 generic medicines. Seniors are able to compare their current prescription costs with the same medications when mail ordered from abroad. Complete ordering information is available by visiting www.medicines.md.
