Important News to Help You Afford Medication:

Americans and Politicians Voice Concerns Over FDA Import Regs; Bring on the Noise!

Over 2,000 Americans voiced their concerns over proposed FDA regulations that would allow Customs and Border Protection to destroy your imported medication. As one person put it, "The Meds I take daily, are the difference between 'Life and Death'. I cannot afford the higher prices at local pharmacies."

We submitted public comments to the FDA. Some senators are listening!

Get louder! If you are in a similar situation, or know someone who is, keep the pressure on and send a message to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Let her know that you do not want to see any safe and affordable imported medication destroyed and that she's there to protect patients not drug company profits!

Americans questioning the quality of their drugs may also be wondering where there drugs are coming from — and the answer isn't simply the location of the headquarters of the drug company.

To find out how you can find affordable, brand name, Toprol XL, and also get the skinny on where drugs are coming from, check out our blog post.
