    Thank you. Toronto is 6 hours away so it would be a last resort. Maybe see them once and then we could skype afterwards.

    Yes, it is a possibility. I would only try a place that has been tried and tested profusely by other ME patients though, to lessen the risk.

    I also know someone from another country who has offered to get it for me and ship it to me.

    Like @MeSci said, they wouldn’t know what it is. Unless they open it for some random search which I doubt would happen.

    Save your money @Dechi. Not worth it. (Both options)

    Too bad my integrative doctor retired a few year ago, he would have been much closer to you!

    You’ve tried LDN yourself ? I guess it did nothing for you ?

    No I haven’t. i need a prescriber and i haven’t found anyone to do it. But i am not sure why you are bringing up LDN? Is that what you were planning to get?

    Yes, and I thought you were talking about LDN when you said don’t waste your money.

    Honestly I don’t know. I have ordered overseas a few times but never really paid attention to anything pertaining to customs.

    You did not specify in your original post, you said ‘drugs commonly used with ME’.

    I am probably not always clear, and I often forget so much. I’m sorry if this is confusing.

    At first I was talking about off the shelf drugs in general, then I was specifically talking about LDN. And the original post was talking about a skype appointment with Dr Teitelbaum. Why would you be confused, lol !

    It is really sad that Canadian patients cannot be offered basic treatments. The majority of GP’s would only know to offer anti-depressants or stimulants. They have no clue at all. :( This has to change.
