Should we expect Repatha and/or Praluent to become available through Canadian pharmacies soon?



Question:
Should we expect Repatha and/or Praluent to become available through Canadian pharmacies soon?

Answer:

Repatha and Praluent are already available through Canadian pharmacies. Verified online pharmacies in our program offer Repatha and Praluent for pickup only due to the very special refrigeration storage requirements for these medications. 

 

Repatha 140 mg/ml is currently $649.00 on PharmacyChecker.com. That's 44% cheaper than the average U.S. retail price.

 

Using PharmacyChecker price comparisons, Praluent 75 mg/ml and Praluent 150 mg/ml are currently 33% cheaper than the average U.S. retail price.

 

Repatha and Praluent are both known as PCSK9 inhibitors, a class of injectable drugs that are known to greatly lower cholesterol levels. They may be used alone or in combination with a statin, a class of lipid-lowering medications, also known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors.

 

If you are located outside of Canada and are looking for ways to save on Repatha and/or Praluent, you may be interested in using PharmacyChecker.com's search tool to find patient assistance programs. Many pharmaceutical companies offer assistance with the cost of medications through patient assistance programs.

Another option to find savings on your medications is to search online for rebates or coupons that can be used at local pharmacy in the U.S. using services, such as NeedyMeds or GoodRx. These sites may provide savings and make the medication more affordable.
