Mark Cuban has started a new website selling medications at cost+ 15%

Take a look at:https://costplusdrugs.com/

One of my BP medications here costs around 80 dollars a box. The same through costplus - 11 dollars. Big savings.

I know some of the couriers don't like to move medications, but still worth looking into.

Generic vs. name brand.

I use COVERSYL (perindopril ) for HP and haven't yet found a generic form here in the DR. Cost 3,437 pesos with the cash discount. cost in the US I believe is around 60 dollars. I get it free in Canada as part of my Veterans medical.

Cuban wants to disrupt the stranglehold that drug companies and insurance companies exercise on the American people.
He is a disruptor.
Not just any old garden variety disruptor.
He seems to have in mind the "public good".
What a concept.
Of course, he is an entrepreneur and the company will have to turn a profit.
It's no charity.
His past successes have provided him with the fortune necessary to move forward with this venture.
He is right.
Something has to be done.
The problem is ginormous and growing.
I wish him success.

How do you get it here?

Once I checked out the prices online with the shipping costs it wasnt worth it. I am sure for some drugs it is. All my other medication is common and cheap here. My neighbor is a pharmacist and lets me know which brands are trustworthy. I have to get it in person in Canada.

So, I just received an email from Mark Cuban's website, which now offers the same medication I take for BP.

My current cost here is a little over 4000 pesos for 28 pills. Take a look at the price below:

Valsartan-Hydrochlorothiazide
Tablet • 160mg-12.5mg • 30 count

$10.80​

Form
Tablet
Strength
80mg-12.5mg160mg-12.5mg160mg-25mg

I wonder if they would accept prescriptions from local doctors?

A local prescription might be difficult to fill in the US. They are going to wonder why it's shipped to Florida and that's if your re-shipper will even consider any type of pharmaceutical drugs to ship to the DR.

I think what Mark Cuban is doing is fantastic but I doubt if it will work for the DR.

Reshipping pharmaceuticals filled by a pharmacy in the United States of America is not a problem.
Fact ‼️

Now that being said I have not had a Schedule 3 pharmaceutical as listed Controlled Substance Act shipped here.
If those are the types of drugs you wish to be shipped, I would seek counsel about that.

It all depends on your re-shipper. Our opinions don't count. The company re-shipping it has final say.

The re-shipper I use to reship pharmaceuticals filled by a pharmacy in the United States of America has delivered them to me in the Dominican Republic without a problem.
Our opinions don't count.
See my statement above. It is not my opinion. It is a fact ‼️
Fact: "a thing that is known or proved to be true."
The company re-shipping it has final say.
My packages arrive so I guess the company re-shipping them do have their say when it come to my packages.

Now that being said I have not had a Schedule 3 pharmaceutical as listed Controlled Substance Act shipped here.
If those are the types of drugs you wish to be shipped, I would seek counsel about that.

Can we say pedantic?

As I said the re-shipper has final say. If yours does good for you. Take a good star and chill out. Not all shipping company's will ship pharmaceutical products as not everybody tells the truth about what's in the box.

Those who are actually ship things into the country know that DGM inspects a very high number of packages entering the country.
I am not moving container loads of pharmaceuticals (legal).
It is funny how people who get put into check ♟️find the need to tell others what to do while licking their wounds.

You were wrong.
DGM has the final say. 🎯
If you really get down to it.
But it's ok to be wrong.
Just don't compound it with attitude.
But that is just my opinion.

Each re-shipper has it own rules.
But now, can someone tell me why they would use a re-shipper that will not provide the service they seek and others will?
It is no harder than going to a different website and filling out the forms online.
