Can I drive to Canada to fill a prescription?

 

Question:
Hi, I understand that Trulicity is no longer available online. What if I drive to Canada with my prescription and buy my meds directly?

Answer:

Driving to Canada to Fill Your Prescription

 

In general, you can drive to Canada, buy medication and bring it back, as long as it's for your personal use. When crossing the border, the U.S. Customs Border Patrol (CBP) is not allowed to stop the importation of FDA-approved medication from Canada for personal use — even though it's technically prohibited. See: Public Law 115-31
