Politically correct? Why do you say that? It's pretty well known that there are tons of scammer sites on the Internet.

There's also the possibility of ordering from a Canadian pharmacy if your doctor is willing. Just today there was an ad in our local paper for a Canadian pharmacy. Included in the ad were some suggested meds with their prices.

I thought of that, too. Unfortunately the Canadian sites I searched did not list my medication so I hit a dead end there.

Oldvine, did you mean a Canadian "brick & mortar" pharmacy?

Talking about Canadian brick and mortar pharmacies reminded me that I needed to refill my 'scrips. I just phoned and they will deliver this evening.

I guess I am fortunate that all the meds I am currently taking have a generic available. I am not concerned about generics. I only had trouble with one that did not do the job for me. At that point I contacted the pharmacy and told them I only wanted it by a specific manufacturer and they complied. I take so many meds that if I had to pay for brand I would not be able to afford anything else. My copay is very high on brand meds. With 2 incomes coming in I do not qualify for assistance.

I take two meds. One for osteoporosis and one for glaucoma. Without lab measurements, I have no idea how well they work. I take the generic for osteoporosis. There is no generic substitute for Lumigan for the glaucoma, yet.

I used to take a brand med for Triglycerides. I got samples from the doctor, but when he didn't have any I had to buy them and they were expensive. There were times when I skipped them and sometimes I took them every other day. The pharmacy noticed that I was not ordering them as often as I should so they called the doctor and the doctor switched me to a similar drug that was available as generic. Tax, I guess if I were in the same position you are with the glacoma med I would just have to find a way to pay for it. That's not something you can just skip.

Lumigan is sold over the counter in Mexico. May I ask what you pay for it?
