Are those meds online safe? Are they the same stuff or just a fraud. They are a lot cheaper and that kinda makes me wonder. I think they are all from someplace other than USA. I've heard they are the same made by same companies. If so why cheaper.

Many/most of our meds are made out of the USA. And a majority of the ingredients used to make them come from China.

I went to an Urgent Care place once and they gave me meds that were made in Syria, of all places.

My wife gets her insulin from a place called hawthorne. I think
it is in Kentucky. They ship it overnight in a cold pack. Same
exact thing that she gets at walgreens.

I worked in the drug industry. Many precursors of drugs and drugs are sourced worldwide. Due to the consolidation of the industry many companies are not based in the USA.
When I reach the donut hole in my insurance I buy from the Canadian Pharmacy in British Columbia. My generics come India buy way of Germany. Quality is excellent. Prices are about what my copays are. India equivalent of our FDA
is very good.
Negative publicity is funded by the drug industry lobby. One of biggest lobbies in Washington.
Stay away from drugs made in China and Eastern Europe.
If you think your local pharmacy stocks all USA made products, ask your pharmacist. The shelves look like the make up of the United Nations.

The plan that I am on I can buy online or through drug store for same price ( online & drug store are owened by same company). I hit donut hole in Sept. last year and only had $200.00 out of pocket to end of year.I have notice the meds. are made all over the world and some of med are made overseas for some of our American based companies.

depends on what the drug is - and how much your
life depends on it.

Don't ever trust out of country quality control.

If you're taking something for headaches - try it.
but if you're taking something to keep your hear
ticking, don't even think about it.

by the time you find out you've been taking sugar
pills it'll be too late to complain.

You do realize don't you that around 1/2 of the medications sold in this country are made in out of country factories. That includes single source patented medicines which have no generic yet. If you are taking many drugs it is almost guaranteed that you are taking drugs manufactured offshore.

The last drug company producing antibiotics in the USA closed in 2004.

Another thing Drugs in US pharmacies that are sourced outside of the country, is if they are generic the percent is North of 50%. Also, the quality control is done outside of the USA. Very little is assayed unless the FDA get a complaint.
That could be more than few months after you take your prescription.

I only buy domestic.
