Buy insulin & syringe in Halifax, NS Canada, no prescription


My wife and I will be vacationing in Halifax this summer. We are bringing enough insulin and syringes with us to hopefully last the summer vacation but, just in case, can you buy insulin and syringes in Halifax, NS, Canada without a prescription? I have heard that you can buy insulin in Ontario, Canada without prescription but even if this true, perhaps every Canadian province is different. Any advice or information anyone can give me is greatly appreciated.

You should contact a Canadian pharmacy online & ask them if an Rx is required, because if it IS, Canadian pharmacies will NOT fill prescriptions IN CANADA if the Rx is from a non-Canadian MD.

I have a Canadian MD friend, so I know this for a fact. She was unable to fill an Rx for me in Toronto written by my US MD.

If I wanted to have the Canadian pharmacy fill it for me online, to be sent to me in the US, that is ok.

So, find out if it requires an Rx in Canada by contacting one of the MANY Canadian pharmacies online (just type Canadian pharmacy into GOOGLE) & email them...

I would assume it does require an Rx & in that case you should bring it.

It's too important to take the advice of travelers on this website.
