    Of course they don't tell you why they are cheaper in Canada. The reason of course is because the government there institutes prices controls on drug prices like most nation's with nationalized healthcare do. Since the US is one of the few nation's where we have a private healthcare systems drug companies pick up the losses here by charging ridiculous prices for drugs. This problem won't be fixed until other countries STOP PRICE CONTROLLING DRUGS

    WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY DID BACK IN BIBLE DAYS??
    THEY PRAYED AND ASKED FOR FORGIVENESS OF THEIR SINS. AND PAYED THEIR VOWS. THEN THE FATHER WOULD HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND HEAL YOU.
