Hi. I was just wondering, before I place an order, how many of you have ordered overseas, as in India or anywhere else? I really want to try and learn a little more before I go through with it. I am a tad nervous...
Thank you.

We could get into the reasons why but none of them are good. Greed, mostly, same thing that is keeping us all sick.

Customs may or may not confiscate these shipments. Both scenarios have happened to people on this forum.

Be careful. Certain countries such as India have very poor quality and safety control measures. You really cannot be sure what is in that pill you are taking. I believe Mexico, Canada and Australia are closer to what we have here in the states in terms of FDA and reg.s.

desertwind, do you know of any specific places that require no rx in these safer places? I am pretty desperate right now.

Thanks

I ordered a couple times, felt more comfortable knowing that my meds came from europe rather than india. Both times the meds seemed effective and helped as they should have.

One time I had an order of capsules get squashed and all busted up during shipment. I took tons of detailed pictures and contacted the pharmacy immediately. They sent me a replacement for what was ruined by the mail.

So if you can, order tablets instead of capsules. They hold up better in shipment. Also expect that it will take at least 3-4wks to arrive at your house. That is normal. Plan ahead so you don't run out.

I was desperate too when I ordered my RX meds. I only ordered what my doc prescribed and my ins co here would not cover. I could not afford to pay for the meds out of pocket here in the US and that is just sad.

Me neither--no issues (India's seem to work).

I have ordered from overseas with no problem. I tried to pm you lymeboy but your box was full. This person lists links on his site:

http://www.michaelharrah.us/parasite-protocol/protocol/168-dr-klinghardt-parasite-protocol

I have these sites bookmarked so I think I got my last order from them.

http://www.superdrugsaver.com/generic-medicine/284/Stromectol.html

http://www.alldaychemist.com

http://www.magicpharma.com/create_account.php?osCsid=bda0869803886d14e3358646c4f098a7

I have no idea if these companies are selling bad drugs or not. I can only say that I am not dead or sicker from using them. Desperate times require desperate measures.

Ok, sorry Nefferdun, it's cleared out now! Thanks so much for the info!

Sammy, is there a way to tell if the pills are coming from Europe? I know a lot of those companies front in places like Canada and Europe, but it's mostly all Indian Pharma.

How about Mexican pharmacies?

i understand some people have prescriptions filled in mexico.

but they are american prescriptions. i've seen drugs like diflucan over the counter but i don't know how they buy them and get them back onboard the ship.

i wouldn't risk it.

I don't know of any specific resources.

A close family member use to work for a Pharmaceutical company in quality control and they told me that India was one of the worst places to gets meds over seas due to safety issues.

A doctor friend of mine told me when I asked about ordering from Canadian pharmacies that the U.S. has much higher impurity tolerance for generics than almost every other country.

He said that Germany has always had the highest quality, but dumbed down when they joined the EU.

He also said that India has much higher quality generics than the United States, and that their drugs will perform much closer to the original patent than U.S. generics.

Given that information, I now order my generics from UniversalDrug.com, a Canadian pharmacy that will tell you which country each drug is from, and the prices are half of what I pay locally most of the time.

Here's a good website and article, confirming that CIPA certified Canadian Pharmacies are safe http://www.cipa.com/.

I have used Canadian pharmacies in the past without any problems. Sorry, but I no longer have the name of the pharmacies I used.

Do you absolutely need a prescription to get the ivermectin? Will a LLMD write a script knowing you'll go overseas?

universaldrugstore.com is the best for me. they even have iv drugs. you need a script

if you don't have a script, magicpharma.com is good for orals.

One thing about universaldrugstore dot com...
I order my natural thyroid from them and was

surprised to discover my script is not processed/filled in Canada.

They have "dispensaries" that fill the scripts througout the world, India being one of them (can't remember the others)

I felt a bit misled... here I thought they were being filled from Canada, but most scripts from

them are not -- a bit deceiving, but I've had no problems as long as I am able to get the product

in the original manufacturer's bottle versus the brownish/gold pharmacy bottle. The original bottle also provides the Lot# and Expiration Date.

I know my product comes in bottles of 500, so that's how I get my script written... I pay out of pocket (ins. doesn't cover "natural" thyroid) so the large quantity doesn't matter, it's almost a year's supply.

I saw a segment on "60 Minutes" I believe about other countries putting things like drywall in the medications. The pills looked just like the real ones and were packaged like the real ones, but when they were analyzed they had a lot of unsafe things in them.

Please be careful.

Yes, that is the sort of concern I am talking about.

I ordered some from overseas. Some of the tablets looked different from one another. I did not trust them at all.

I had someone energetically test them and the tablets were not all the same medication.

I wasted my money and could have hurt myself.
