Find other Proparacaine strengths
There are currently no PharmacyChecker-verified pharmacies shipping refrigerated products internationally to patients in the U.S. We hope Canadian pharmacies will supply refrigerated medications, such as insulin, to U.S. customers with a valid prescription in the near future.
Proparacaine 0.5 % op is a temperature-sensitive medication and requires cold chain management during shipment. To best guarantee safe shipment, pharmacies in the PharmacyChecker Verification Program must ensure that shipments of Proparacaine 0.5 % op are not exposed to temperatures below 2 degrees or above 8 degrees Celsius. That requires very fast delivery times. Unfortunately, it is not clear whether major private mail couriers with the capability for overnight delivery, such as Federal Express and UPS, will ship insulin and other medical products from pharmacies in Canada to people in the U.S. Allowing Canadian pharmacies to do so would enable them to meet PharmacyChecker's standard for shipping products, such as insulin.
