    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had experience buying insulin from Canada while living in the USA? I've looked at prices online and they seem great, but I have no idea what's legitimate or what is a scam. It's getting impossible to pay for insulin and my insurance hardly covers any of the cost until I hit my massive deductible. All the financial resources I've looked have me dropping my insurance to qualify and even then I'm not sure I'd be approved. If anyone has any knowledge, it'd be much appreciated.
