Since the beginning of the Great Recession in 2008, economic concerns have been paramount among American citizens. Over the past year, a number of reports have emerged indicating that the slow economy has forced many patients to cut corners to pay for medications; but what is of even greater concern is that many individuals under the age of 65 are failing to fill prescriptions simply because of cost. With mounting evidence that prescription prices in the United States are prohibitive, online pharmacies such as DoctorSolve are encouraging consumers to consider Canadian drugs as a safe and affordable alternative.
According to a recent report in PharmaTimes, 45% of US consumers aged under-65 who do not have a prescription drug benefit are now failing to fill their prescriptions because of the cost. These figures have nearly doubled compared to last year according to their research. Lack of insurance for medications is clearly the determining factor, as individuals under age 65 are also foregoing other medical treatments. Nearly two thirds of subjects reported declining medical tests because of cost, and similar numbers of patients put off a doctors visit to save money.
Similarly, many Americans find they are in a position where the need to sacrifice other necessities to pay for their medications. Without prescription drug coverage, ConsumerReports.org suggests consumers are nearing a crisis point. The site recently conducted 2 surveys that suggest that difficulty paying for health care including prescription drugs and other medical bills remains the top financial problem for American households. More than half of survey respondents indicated they needed to reduce other household expenses or change how they manage their finances to pay for medications. Indeed, the report continues that problems paying for medical bills and medication remain the most severe financial issues Americans face. That beats problems making mortgage payments or paying other big household bills.
Yet Canadian online pharmacies offer safe drugs at a discount of up to 80% compared to American pharmacies. The Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA) is an association of licensed, retail pharmacies, and according to their website their member pharmacies sell pharmaceuticals and maintenance medications and that each pharmacy is licensed and regulated by the government for safety. In fact, the National Bureau of Economic Research conducted a scientific review of CIPA pharmacies in March 2012 and concluded there was no failure of authenticity found in drugs that came from verified websites. In other words, CIPA pharmacies sell the same drugs you would find in American pharmacies, but at a drastically reduced price.
DoctorSolve is a leading online pharmacy that has been verified by the CIPA as a source for name-brand and generic medications at discount prices. According to their website, DoctorSolve has been operating as a trusted Canadian pharmacy since 1999 during which time they have maintained a perfect patient safety record. Co-founder of DoctorSolve, Dr. Paul Zickler wants to encourage American patients to consider our pharmacy or other Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA) sites for affordable access to medications. He continues, there is no need for American patients to cut corners in household costs or medical expenses to pay for prescriptions. DoctorSolve is a full-service pharmacy that provides its customers with genuine drugs at heavily discounted prices.
