I just priced my first prescription for cialis 5 mg. I live in Canada and the cost is $155.00 for 30 tabs. Can anyone give me advice as where to purchase this or levitra at a lower cost. I do live on the border of a US city, and can cross to the US to buy.
 
Thanks Fred

You are finding , as we all have that ED drugs are over priced and often not covered by insurance.  I am surprised that the Canadians are not more helpful regarding this problem.  I priced Canadian drugs and found them to be about the same as in the US.
 
If you find that you can use Viagra, you can get it from All Day Chemist in New Delhi India.  Occasionally your shipment will be intercepted by the government inspectors, but ADC is good about shipping a new order without additional charges.  The product is comprable to Viagra and only  a few cents a pill. I don't think a generic for Cialis is currently available. The shipping is higher, but if you buy enough it is not a factor.  Try www.alldaychemist.com .

Cialis is available from ADC but I believe it is not able be be sent into the US because of patent stranglehold. It is supplied from ADC under the name Ceebis but contains the same active ingredient i.e. 20mg Tadalafil. I have had no problem bringing it into Australia but I don't know how you will go getting it into Canada. I have recommended ADC to other Australians who later tried them and were happy with the effectiveness of the generic Cialis (including the same side effects). Likewise a generic Levitra is available.

 Thankyou for your posts. I found out from Canadian customs that it can only be brought in by having a prescription from your doctor. I guess it has to be something that can be prescribed, and is also sold in Canada

I received my first order of generic Levitra, from All Day Chemist, today.  I have an Rx from my doctor but ADC did not ask for it.  It only took about 10 days. 20 pills for about $40 shipped. My out of pocket through my health insurance is $60 for 5 pills so this is a big savings for me.
