Hydroxychloroquine may also be used to treat discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis.

The medication to treated SIBO in the USA is absolutely over priced as it has to be used usually twice a year. True Canada Pharmacy helped me obtain 2+ treatment doses of it for far, far, far less than 1 treatment dose cost in the USA. Due to the pandemic it takes a while to get it but we are all set for the next time it recurs. Thank you so very much.

I have used Canadian Pharmacy for at least 10-12 years. I have been very grateful to be able to get my life saving scripts at reasonable affordable prices. The follow-up of your Reps is excellent. During the COVID 19 virus outbreak scripts took much longer to receive. I think thus was partly due to the U.S.P.S. assault by DeJoy as Postmaster General. Before COVID 19 it took approx. 2-3 weeks to receive meds; during COVID 19 and the US General Election year, it took easily 2 months to receive scripts. It will be interesting to see if future orders arrive any more quickly after DeJoy is no longer Postmaster General?!

Good experience. I found another pharmacy with a lower price than yours, and you did lower the price for me. It took some time to get everything straight, so you expedited the mail and I received it on time. Thank you.
