If you are considering purchasing medication from outside the U.S., be aware that, in most circumstances, it is technically not legal for individuals to import prescription drugs; however, U.S. government officials have stated that individuals who order non-controlled prescription drugs from Canada or other foreign sources (up to a three-month supply) for their own use are not being pursued or prosecuted.
Is there any difference between Rasagiline and Rasagiline mesylate?
No, there isn't any difference between Rasagiline and Rasagiline mesylate.
Generic versions of medications are sometimes referred to by the chemical name of the active ingredient (rasagiline mesylate), and are sometimes shortened to only list the chemical base of the active ingredient (rasagiline).
Rasagiline mesylate is the active ingredient in the brand-name product Azilect, a prescription medication used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. It can aid in improving certain symptoms of Parkinson's, such as shakiness and stiffness.
The average U.S. retail per pill cost of Rasagiline mesylate 1 mg is currently $20.76.
At PharmacyChecker-verified international online pharmacies, you can order Rasagiline for as low as $0.47 per pill. That's a 98% savings!
