The Price of Medicine Around the World


Roger Bate, who has done amazing work exposing fake medicines all around the world, says that reputable pharmacies overseas can still be found, and if you can find one, use it. This is how he describes the chart here.

The most expensive price of each of seven medicines sampled equates to '1,' and then the averages of the price of good quality 'passing' medicine as related to the most expensive is recorded. From over 800 samples it is pretty obvious that US-sourced medicines are always more expensive than any other source. The US provided the most expensive medicine in each case and easily the highest averages.

Bate says Internet-sourced medicines bought from credentialed pharmacies "are as good quality as those bought from brick and mortar pharmacies and US-based web pharmacies." Know your source!
