Medication needed

I am having difficulty getting vital prescribed  medication sent from US to DR

How have you tried getting it shipped? What's the issues? I have had mine shipped in via CPS direct from the pharmacy, no issue at all.

I also have mine sent directly by CPS with no problem. Those that cannot be shipped from the pharmacy I have a friend pack them up and send via CPS.  I have been doing this for years.

Thank you for your response . I had an individual send it via USPS. It has been lost for two weeks. I have the tracking number and all it tells me is that it is enroute.    I suspect that it may have been intercepted by customs . I may be casualty in "The War on Drugs"

Thanks Bob for the response. I assume that the CPS is the Canadian Postal Service. I have sent mine by the USPS. Perhaps yours coming from a more civilized country had less problems. My medications have  been traveling for two weeks. Thank you again.

NO CPS here is a package forwarding service.  You get a Miami address to send your things to and then they ship it in and take care of any customs and forms.

If you sent it to the DR by mail it is long gone.  Get it sent by registered mail to a freight forwarder account in Miami. Where are you here in DR?  We can recommend one.

We are in Santiago. Long gone is what I feared. Thank you.

Thank you. You have all been very helpful.

I found CPS in Santiago. Thank you again.

Use them, they are awesome!

Thank you again. This site is awesome. I wish I did my homework before coming. Life gives the test then the  lesson .

I buy my monthly meds at any local farmacia.  The month's supply for 5 drugs comes to 1400 pesos, back in Tennessee it is about $40.00 so a bit cheaper here with no shippin charge, but mine are very common meds. Metformin, simvastatin amlodipin and lisinopril.  Spell check says I got them all spelt wrong, but it is the best I can d since i buy them here with Spanish spellings.

Thanks Dingo, I get most of mine cheap. My wife's are more complicated. She has one you need a prescription for and is not available in DR . One of the others is OTC but around 4000 thousand pesos for a weeks supply. Thanks again for your response.
