Being on the Medicare RX plan I hit the donut hole in 5 months, Systemic Lupus. I think that might be a record. I take several medications which are not generically available so I began to look elsewhere.

Celebrex works for me and it works very well. Well worth the money but when you combine this with with several others ouch. Prevacid is the only medication that works for my acid reflux, so it is a must.

Remembering my oil field days and my trips to 3rd world countries, most recently Egypt, these drugs were available there. Sure enough I found a generic version of prevacid and celebrex both made by international drug companies who also have products here. Many countries do not honor our patent laws with regard to pharmaceuticals. I took part in a biotechnology conference inCairo and this was the main reason they did not sign a patent treaty.

So I received my first order from an Indian Pharmacy, most of my doctors are Indian after all. They worked great.

A years supply will cost about what two months costs here.

So I ordered my two blood pressure medications and the two Parkinsons medications that I also have prescriptions for. I don't have Parkinsons but a Lupus relation version of severe restless leg syndrome and myoclonic spasms.

So now I can afford to buy stuff for the MH. You can have a 3 month supply of your prescription medications and it take about two weeks for the medications to arrive by air mail though the USPO.

You may find this web site useful: drugonepage.com. It has drug information, cost comparisons, and coupons. It is also a gateway to insurance companies, pharmacy chains, drug companies, and the like. Good Luck.
