Valdosta - Loette Perry has a long list of prescription drugs. She pays for all of them out of pockets, and says the total price seems to increase every month. "They're a lot higher," said Perry. "I'd say I pay at least $150 each month."
The cost of Perry's drugs would be about half as much in another country, and Pharmacist Jeff Sikes says that's wrong. "The manufacturers are supplying them to other countries at half the price," said Sikes. "I understand giving foreign aid and helping out third-world countries who can't afford it, but Canada, that's crazy," said Sikes.
For example, Sikes pays $34 for 30 tablets of Allegra D, while Canada sales it for $21.42. Ninety tablets of Lipitor costs $260 in the U.S, but only $167 in Canada. And the list goes on.
"Nexium, the purple pill, costs about $70 in Canada for 28 tablets, and I pay $98," said Sikes.
Sikes says re-importing drugs is illegal, and its only amatter of time before it stops.
