I found out the only reason I could buy the meds from the wholesaler was my medical license but I could not be a distributing pharmacy. You see here in the US, a patient can only get medications from a distributing pharmacy which can mark up the price as much as the market can bear. The big pharmacy chains can be their own wholesalers and also negotiate with each insurance company a cost for each medication. As a a result of this their proffit goes through the roof.
There is a reason why there are pharmacies on every corner and why drugs cost so much. It isnt so much the drug companies but the pharmacies. (When you get meds from Canada you get them from wholesalers). So, ignore the man behind the screen at the pharmacy because he is robbing you blind.
