inboxQ: “Is Nexium 40 mg. available in Canada at a cheaper price?  Or any other country? ”

More importantly, Medtipster recommends the generic, Omeprazole to treat  GURD. 95% less cost and VERY similar results. Search for Omeprazole (generic Prilosec) on and go pick up a 30 day supply for $4….

Happy surfing on,



Importation – Be Afraid, Very Afraid

pharmasueann_logoMedtipster is available “free of charge” to assist all consumers in reducing prescription drug costs. We do not believe that consumer safety can be ensured in any system that allows of the personal importation of prescription drugs. You should be very concerned about the safety and effectiveness of these drugs. Your life is to important.

Everyday your neighborhood pharmacist is available to assist you in obtaining cost effective, therapeutically appropriate drug therapies. This personal service is not available with imported drugs.

One of the most cost effective ways to reduce your prescription drug cost is through the use of generic drugs.

Medtipster applauds the pharmacists of the United States for their continued effort in reducing prescription drug costs.
