My first cycle on clomid I purchased it at the pharmacy (in the U.S.). My insurance didn't cover, so the 5 pills (one cycle at 50mg per day) cost $35. The pharmacist gave me the generic brand, which kinda peeved me because I paid full cost.
The next cycle I needed to re-fill my perscription and found out that you can buy clomid on-line from Mexico. I asked my RE about this, and he said that some people even drive to Mexico or Canada to buy their injectible drugs for a lower price. Knowing I could always go to my local pharmacy at the last minute, I decided to give it a try.
I found two websites, medsmex and safemeds. I ended up going with safemeds cause their site seemed easier. It's a company in Mexico. I ordered one box of clomid, which contained 30 50-mg pills. As I was taking a 50mg dose, that was enough for 6 cycles. The list price was $30 I think.
I went to check out and they were doing free shipping plus a new-user disount, so my total due was only $25. For 6 cycles of clomid that was pretty amazing. I paid with my debit card.... which was kinda dumb, LOL... but they charged the correct amount and were extremely professional (sent confirmation, an invoice, a notice when it was shipped, etc). I had been cautioned they take 6-8 weeks to ship, but I got mine in about 2 weeks. It was packaged in a small shipping box, and was the Aventis brand of clomid "Omfrin." The packaging was in spanish but it was clearly from the drug company and was bubble-sealed and nothing suspicious. I was surprised to get the name brand, cause here in the US pharmacies they were always giving me generic.
It was interesting that the company did not ask me at any time for proof of a perscription (which I did have). I guess outside the US you can get clomid without a perscription. I have since had friends in my infertility support group who have ordered from their site (without a perscription) and they had the same experience as me. We all got pregnant too.
