Help: Have American prescription for Canadian Drug

16 years ago

My daughter received a prescription from her doctor here in the U.S. for a drug that is only available in Canada. The medicine has had very good results for people with her condition (gastritis). We live about 6 hours from the Canadian border.

Will the drug companies that mail medicine from Canada accept a prescription for medicine the FDA has not yet approved in the States? Which companies are most reliable to work with? Will these companies accept U.S. Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance?

If she cannot use these mail order companies, how do we get the medicine? Will a pharmacy just over the border accept an American prescription? Will they accept U.S. health insurance? Or must she go to a Canadian doctor to get the prescription?
