I just refilled a prescription I will be taking the rest of my life. Due to it's high cost I enter the gap after 9 months worth and due to the vanishing gap promise the price has doubled just this year to $1550.00 for this refill. I live in NH and this drug is available in Canada under a different name but by the same manufacturer. What is the procedure travel to and get this filled in Canada (once a year to cover the gap)? I live in middle NH.

    I am NOT interested in filling online or responding to scam artists.

  • djm5657 Oct 10, 2010

    Should I just drive to Canada and shout my request on a street corner? Please no more links to websites to order. I can get plaster of paris at my local Home Depot without sending CC info online.

  • djm5657 Oct 10, 2010

    I WILL NOT accept website links so avoid complaints to FIXYA bt NOT sending any!!!!!

  • djm5657 Oct 10, 2010

    The prescription is for 200mg Provigil (Alertec in Canada). I live close to US93 and can drive or take a bus if less costly. Finally after 10 scam artists in a row trying to direct me to websites, a legitamite answer.

    Sherbrooke, QC is 149 miles from my home. $20 for gas roundtrip.

    Out of ALL replies the only non scam artist. Or the other responders were poorly informed.

You actually have to travel to Canada and physically fill the prescription. Just take your current prescription bottle with you to Canada to any pharmacy and they can help you fill it. Reply back to me and I will find an article in the mean time with exact descriptions and information on how to do it. Also I will find some Pharmacy locations for you by then that will be closest to New Hampshire for you.

Thanks
Tim

    Drive there with your US prescription in hand and present it to the Pharmacy of your choice. After they verify that your prescription is valid and fill it, drive back home and then your mission is complete.

Canada regulates drug prices as part of its national health care system, while the market dictates pricing in the United States. For this reason, many popular medications can be bought in Canada at less than half the U.S. price. There are several Web sites that allow you to purchase medications from Canada at this discounted rate. And buying over the Internet is much easier than making the trip to Canada for the purchase. Be aware that the U.S. does employ scare tactics by telling you how they discourage Canadian drug sales because they can't vouch for the safety of Canadian medications. However, the pharmacies in Canada are just like the ones in America so don't buy into the scare campaigns of the U.S. pharmaceutical companies. By doing a simple online search, you can easily find several online Canadian pharmacies to fill your prescriptions. All of them offer the same name brand medications that you can buy here in the U.S. only through the Canadian market you will realize a savings of up to 50 percent and you can buy your medications in bulk. Most Canadian pharmacies do require a valid prescription depending on the medication. However, some medications that require a prescription in the U.S. are available without one in Canada. For those medications that do require a prescription, you can either mail or fax your prescription to the pharmacy with which you are doing business. Once they receive your prescription, you can order and place your refills over the Internet, by fax, or by calling their customer service representatives. After they receive your paperwork, your prescriptions will usually be delivered to you in about a week. It is very simple and will save you a lot of money! Hopefully, if enough consumers keep buying their medications in Canada, it will eventually bring about policy changes in the U.S.

Kindly let me know the prescription first. I assume that your knowledge is perfect and you know that you will get this prescription cheapest in Canada. Further kindly let me know both the names which are being used in your country and in Canada. I further understand that you live in New Hampshire but without complete information I won't be able to provide you the solution. I would also like to caution you that I may demand the scanned copy of the prescription written by your doc in order to authenticate via drug act.

    OK now when I have got the required information I will require another 8 hours. Kindly have patience. I have contacts in canada I won't be making calls as that will be costly for me. Hence already sent the mail and waiting for that docs response. You need to give me another 8 hours or less depending upon when he mails me.

What is a good antibiotic? Can you buy it over the counter


Way too generic question. There are many types for very specific treatments. Antibiotics need to be directed according to a rigid plan. They are only effective within a prescribed time parameter decided by whatever factors are concerned with your treatment. The course of treatment can usually last no more than 10 days and must not be repeated for at least a month after end of preliminary treatment. Other wise any current or future treatment will fail due to the body resisting the "cure". This is the same for both internal and external applications. Hope this is useful ...

Batteries are going down one phone at a time. Is it cost effective to buy new batteries?


Most cell phones have relatively cheap batteries these days. For example, my current phone's battery only costs about $30; my previous phone's battery only costed $15. If you're experiencing worse than usual battery life on your phone, it's completely worth it to buy a new battery. I suggest looking on an online store (such as Amazon.com) for batteries rather than buying directly from the manufacturer due to the lower cost.
Smartphones generally have slightly more expensive batteries, but it's still worth it, in my opinion, because you'll always be sure you're getting the full life out of your phone.

Stay away from Acer


I agree, but bear in mind most laptops only have an average shelf life of 2 years, so it was due to show up some problem sooner or later, but yes I agree. Go for well known brands like Packard Bell or HP, they are expensive, but they are certainly worth it

Screen doesn't turn on!


This is usually due to bad capacitors in the montior, something a good computer repair or TV repair shop could fix. The caps can be replaced.

If the monitor is a smaller one, like 17-19 inch, it might not even be worth fixing if the cost is too high. Usually the 22" and larger cost a bit more and might be worth fixing.

How to set up Speed Dial on a Uniden phone?


My Mom had this same problem.   I found these instructions on Uniden's website (uniden.com) under the "Owner Manuel" section.


Here you go - good luck!








Using the Speed Dial Memory 
Storing Numbers in Speed Dial Memory 
Your cordless phone can store up to ten numbers (up to 20 digits each) in the speed dial 
memory. To store number in memory: 
1) When the phone is in standby, press [memory]. The talk/batt low LED flashes. 
2) Use the keypad to enter the phone number. 
 (To enter a 2-second pause between numbers, press [redial/ 
pause]. Each pause counts as a digit. ) 
3) Press [memory] again. 
4) Select the speed dial location where you would like to store the 
number ( [0] to [9] ). You will hear a confirmation tone indicating 
that the number has been stored. 
NOTE: 
• Storing a number to a speed dial location will 
overwrite the any previously stored number without 
warning. 
• When storing numbers into memory and the handset is idle (i.e., no key is 
pressed) for more than 0 seconds, it will beep rapidly, and then the phone 
will return to standby. 
Dialing a Stored Number 
1) When the phone is in standby, press [talk], and listen for a dial tone. 
2) Press [memory] and enter the speed dial entry ([0] – [9]) that has the stored number 
you want to dial. (If you enter a digit that does not contain a stored number, the 
handset will beep rapidly, and the phone will not dial.) 
Chain Dialing 
The speed dial memory is not limited to phone numbers. You can store any number (up 
to 20 digits) that you need to enter once your call connects. This is referred to as Chain 
Dialing. An example is a frequently refilled prescription number. Store your pharmacy 
phone number in one speed dial and your most frequently refilled prescription number 
as another speed dial. To use, once you ring your pharmacy's automated prescription 
line, simply press [memory] and the speed dial number where you stored your account 
number. 
Erasing a Stored Number from Memory 
1) With the phone in standby, press [memory] twice. 
2) Press the number of the speed dial entry. A tone indicates that the stored number is 
erased from memory.
