Hello,

I spoke to Abbvie Canada and they told me that Viberzi was going to be available again in Canada. You should really check again.

However, if you go to a doctor in the US and show them your prescription for Viberzi in Canada, they will most likely write a prescription for you and you can purchase it there. You should know that it is quite expensive without a drug plan. Check into any Viberzi assistance programs to see if you quality for a discount.

Did you get it in Canada?  I've been without since early January, due to shortage.

I am US and my insurance doesn’t cover it so my Doctor said to try Canada. How much would 100mg 60 count be? Is the a particular pharmacy in Canada that I should contact a?

Any pharmacy can order it for you in Canada depending on which province you are near; however, you will require a Canadian doctor's prescription to receive it. Viberzi isn't cheap by Canadian standards. I can tell you what I paid at Costco pharmacy, it was approx CDN$3.30 per tablet so 60 might be ~CDN$200. You will also have to pay for a walk-in-clinic visit to try and get the prescription. I am not sure what the cost of that is and it's not necessarily a guarantee that the doctor will prescribe it for you.

If you decide to go this route, it would be probably be best to send a letter to the walk-in-clinic from your own doctor and also arrange for the pharmacy to have it in stock.
