Buying painkillers in Canada minus a prescription?
We live in the U.S. My wife suffers from chronic migraines. Doctors here are greatly reluctant to prescribe painkillers with narcotics, which are the single thing strong satisfactory to help her. A friend said that she go to Canada to buy Tylenol #1 (Tylenol with codeine, which is not avail. in the U.S.) over the counter for her migraines and which her doctors will not prescribe, is available in need a prescription in Canada. We are considering doing this. Is within any city in Canada that would be best for such a activity? We are thinking of Quebec. Is Tylenol #1 the strongest non-prescription painkiller available within Canada? Are there any customs issues we should be aware of? Thanks, "suffering in Boston"
Get your wife to a distress clinic-- preferrably one where the discomfort management doc is a neurologist. I promise that they will work next to your wifde and find the medications that work best for her distress, even if they are narcotics. She will need adjectives her medical records. This webiste have a search function to relieve patients find pain doctors within their area: http://www.aapainmanage.org/info/patient...
Seeing a pain doctor is much safer than trying to self medicate. The Tylenol #1 is not worthy for long-term use because of the Tylenol. My pain doc is wonderfule; even the doctor wqho FOUND the lead to of my chronic pain and told me I have to see a pain doctor made me consistency like a junkie because narcotics be what worked, but this doc definitely doesn't. He have put me on Oxycontin and OxyFast liquid for my stomach-ache and it has changed my energy. Pain docs are not afraid to write narcotic scripts because they trade name patients sign a contract stating specific rules they have to follow and agreeing to monitoring such as chaotic urine tests and pill counts to insure compliance next to medication. Good luck to you and your wife.
http://www.canadapharmacy.com/ is a big one .
Tylenol beside codeine is strictly prescription only, not available rotten the shelf in Canada (unless Quebec have their own rules as they often do).
I construe the Canadian rules say Canadians can bring tablets or Rx to Canada if its for your own use, but you're not allowed to provide it or sell it to anyone else. USA rules might diverge, they might ban it outright if they classify it strictly as a narcotic even despite health/pain wishes.
