I can imagine most forms of insulin would be considered to be generic as in there's no longer a patent on it/them.

I'm not sure why foreign markets would have cheaper access to drugs patented or produced in the US, the only thing that comes to my mind is price fixing. There's usually alternatives.

However in nations with socialised healthcare their can be issues with cost and a reluctance to provide expensive medicines.

As far as I know, the drug companies tweak the drug, just enough to apply for a new patent, every..20 years I think?(patent]

That is how I understand it, If I'm wrong I welcome the proper info.


If all patents are equal then I can speak from a area I spent 35 years in and that is HAVC concerning refrigerants the R12 and R22 patents were about to expire owned by DuPont when all of a sudden the ozone data came in that they were bad and needed to be eliminated . DuPont owns the patent on R410A. So I can see medicines being manipulated in the same way.

Interesting, ya, every industry is doing this. Got to be huge $$ at stake.

I have to get one of my meds from Canada because it is less than 1/4 of the monthly price for a 90 day supply if I get it through them. Instead of paying almost two grand for 90 days here I get it for $150ish for 90 days. It takes a good while to get it but it's worth it.

Our drug prices are inexcusable.

I'm glad you can get the help, but I think of your comment the other day about not wanting anything to do with, or live in a "socialist" country like Canada..really now?

Have an open mind about it.


The difference is the drugs come from the same manufacturer in a different country (not Canada), Canada is just the broker. I haven't checked but there are probably laws in the US preventing ours from doing the same thing.

Socialized meds because of the cost of one of my drugs? No thanks, they would forbid me to get the necessary aneurysm care as I get older and that would shorten my lifespan because my issue is genetic.

I'm not sure about that, but thank you for your answer.

God bless him for that.

Those are not new standards. Republicans and Fox news jumped down Obama's throat for everything (remember the tan suit) and refused to work with him on any idea he came up with. Remember how they refused to stand up and clap during his state of the unions? They started this childishness we are experiencing in US politics.

Sad really, the next lefty goverment is going to screw the pooch even more than the orange idiot, all to the cheers of the people. Which is strange that the people would cheer on their own demise.
