Some people just have naturally very high cholesterol, consequently it is best to take the medication. No argument there. But the majority of people who take them would be better served by changing their eating habits.


Bingo. Took a statin for two weeks and calf’s starting hurting, blood test showed to stop taking them. Lost 30 pounds and laid off the chocolate and cholesterol dropped 40 points to normal range. Most people can do this too, as you have noted.

Research that is provided to the FDA which "proves" drugs as safe and all that "evidenced based" stuff taught in med school was paid by the pharmaceutical industry as well.


So the company that wants the product approved pays for the trials... that is 100% correct. How would you have them funded? By taxpayers?

Keep in mind that roughly 86% of drugs do not get approved and the companies are funding the development and trials for those as well, with zero return on that investment.

re: Canadian Online Pharmacies
I get Januvia (diabetes med) from Maple Leaf in Canada. Costs me around $90 for 3 months, whereas it was around $400 with my insurance in the US. Been using them for a couple years. My wife gets a medication for gastroparesis that she literally can not get in the US - not sure which Canadian pharmacy she uses, but she’s been using them for a couple years. Neither of us have had any issues with either pharmacy.

re: Canadian Online Pharmacies
I've been ordering my synthroid from canada for probably 15 years. I get tested every year to make sure my levels are good and I always pass so the drugs must be doing their job. There is a voluntary certification group that tries to ensure the pharmacies that are members are selling only high quality drugs. CIPA. I have used 3 or 4 different pharmacies off CIPAs list over the years and all have been good. Many canadian pharmacies stopped accepting visa/mastercard a couple years ago and only accept American Express.

pretty much what my retired pharmacist uncle said. If America didn’t pay what America pays, the rest of the world couldn’t sell them so cheaply.

I've been buying drugs(legal drugs that require a scrip in the US,) from outside of the US for years, never had an issue

777Tiger, thanks!

Question... do you mean you buy in-person at a physical pharmacy in Canada? Or do you buy online?

My friend is going to be near Detroit very soon. I called one brick/mortar pharmacy in Windsor, Ontario and she said, for her facility:
- Rx must come from a Canadian doctor
- no Canadian doctors are writing Rx for Americans now

Unlike physical Rx locations, the online pharmacies ARE accepting prescriptions from American doctors. Can/should I try other brick/mortar locations in Windsor?


Everyone else who replied, especially some REALLY helpful ones, thank you! I am gonna reply to a few of those ASAP.

I don't know what "The Pharmacist" is.
I barely know what "dropped" means.

I understand about 37% of this sentence.

re: Canadian Online Pharmacies
Lot’s of people used to go to Mexico to buy their medicines but I would be afraid of getting counterfeit drugs. I wouldn’t be afraid of getting them from Canada.
Thing is,majority of generic drugs made in China or India which is scary to me.Best plan is to avoid medications if possible.
All this stuff about drug companies having to charge high prices to recoup their R&D expenses is a bunch of crap.Drug companies spend ton’s of money promoting their drugs.They have had to tone it down a bunch but they still spend a lot.My wife works in a cardiologists office,drug reps bring lunch for the whole office virtually everyday.
Another thing they do is they sponsor dinners where a Dr. is paid an “honorarium” to talk about their drug.They never mention the trade name,just the generic.Drug reps refer to these Drs.as “drug whores”.Behind their back,of course.
Then look at all the ads on cable tv,that’s not cheap.

Domperidone


I'd be curious to do a bit more digging on why it was rejected in the US

quote:

Regulatory approval[edit]
In the United States, domperidone is not currently a legally marketed human drug and it is not approved for sale in the U.S. On 7 June 2004, FDA issued a public warning that distributing any domperidone-containing products is illegal.[76]

It is available over-the-counter to treat gastroesophageal reflux and functional dyspepsia in many countries, such as Ireland, the Netherlands, Italy, South Africa, Mexico, Chile, and China.[77]

Domperidone is not generally approved for use in the United States. There is an exception for use in people with treatment-refractory gastrointestinal symptoms under an FDA Investigational New Drug application.[1]

Our doctors have been programmed to prescribe. Think about that for a bit the next time yours wants to put you on a cholesterol medication.

You're right there. A few years back MD wanted me on statins, metformin, and some "new" miracle drug for through the roof weight loss. A combination of an old antidepressant and something else.

And of course, lip service to life style changes.

I went on a modified paleo/cave man/keto for 6 months, lost 45 lbs, and had him singing my praises and having to record that I was no longer diabetic and all other numbers optimum. Cholesterol was "a tad higher than than he'd like", but not bad at all and the balance between good and bad was perfect. And "didn't the meds do a good job?"

He was visibly angry when I told him I never touched them. Even angrier when I told him I went with his advice on changing diet and regular swimming three days a week. Madder still when I told him the diet.
