It looks like PharmacyChecker’s drug price comparisons show lower prices internationally. What’s that about?

You may have searched for your medication prices on and found the not-so-secret secret that international online pharmacies, located in Canada and other countries, sell prescription meds at extraordinarily steep discounts. These international prices are much lower than pharmacy discount coupons, whether offered by GoodRx or PharmacyChecker.

Not so fast though! International savings are far greater if you are prescribed a brand name drug without a generic alternative. It’s true that a select few generics are cheaper if ordered internationally, but the savings usually aren’t worth skipping your local option.
