Does anybody know if you have to pay for anti seizure medication in Canada?In the UK and Ireland it is free. I'd be interested to know what the situation is like in canada, how costly it could be.
Thanks

No Drug Plan, you are on your own, unless covered due to age or financial situation by the Government.

Canada's Health Care does not include Drugs, these you either take Insurance for, get as part of Benefit Plan at work, or pay directly.

Is the med for a child, or an adult?

Thanks for your reply Max 1944. It looks like I'm on my own covering the cost of the meds.The meds are for myself, an adult.
I'm not epileptic, I had one grand Mal seizure but have to take meds to be allowed to drive.I'll try and get as many months supply as I'm allowed before I leave.
