Moira Jackson-Drage, left, who cannot afford medication to treat her fibromyalgia and neuropathy, talks with Rep. Susan Duckworth, D-Magna, after Jackson-Drage spoke in support of HB267, which would allow importation of certain drugs from Canada, during a House Business and Labor Standing Committee meeting at the Capitol in Salt Lake City on Thursday, Feb. SALT LAKE CITY — After years living outside the state, Moira Jackson-Drage moved back to Utah to be able to better spoil her three grandchildren and be closer to family. But pain from fibromyalgia and other conditions is holding her back. Medications that would help her myriad symptoms would cost hundreds of dollars each month, even with insurance and a lower dose than what she needs. I do what I can," Jackson-Drage, of Magna, told the Deseret News. Without it, she says she does what she can to live a barely normal life. She's tried more affordable substitutes and they haven't worked or bring on even worse side effects. "I feel like I've become a drug cabinet," the 50-year-old said, adding that the runaround only adds to her anxiety and depression issues. Federal documents show that pharmaceutical giant Pfizer increased the price of Lyrica — the drug Jackson-Drage needs to adequately control her pain — by 145 percent from 2009 to 2015, with an increase of 19.3 percent in 2017. "We went without a lot of things trying to afford the medications over the years," Jackson-Drage said, adding that she just wants it to be "more doable." "What else can I do," she said. "I just wish they could make it affordable for everyone." Rep. Canada Drugs, as a company, was very customer focused as well as employee focused. They were very flexible with shifts/scheduling for their employees and also worked hard at maintaining high morale in the workplace and had a strong HR department. In turn, what was expected of the employees was, to show up to your shifts, show up on time and provide high quality customer service for the patients. In an example of being customer focused, I have seen many occasions where the company lost money in order to assist patients. This didn't happen on a regular basis but there were certain dire situations where this was done without thinking twice. A typical day at Canada Drugs would be to take calls, emails or chats (what ever you were assigned to do) and provide the best customer service for each patient that called in. It was normally pretty busy where you would receive back to back calls.
A source close to a federal investigation told CBS News Haughton's role in shipping the fake Avastin into the U. "We didn't buy it out of someone's trunk of the car," Haughton said. "What that means is that they are not allowed to legally ship products to the U. They are violating state law every time they ship a package into the U. But regulators and law enforcement officials tell CBS News this is exactly why it's illegal to sell unapproved drugs from overseas in the U. Houghton told us he didn't know the drugs were counterfeit. Its pharmacies follow all laws and regulatory requirements in the jurisdictions where they operate." says its company had nothing to do with the fake Avastin. "We bought it through a licensed and registered wholesaler." It's not his fault? "It's my fault that my company sold this product," Haughton said. "But I'm telling you we sourced it from the controlled and regulated EU supply chain that millions of people trust every day." Regardless of the source, according to the U. Food and Drug Administration, it is illegal for pharmacies based in Canada or other countries to ship prescription drugs into the U. patient." In a statement, said it "has been legally licensed to carry on business as an international prescription service pharmacy by the Manitoba Pharmaceutical Association. Court documents are providing new information about the U. investigation into a Manitoba online pharmacy, including details about the surveillance of five Winnipeg homes as recently as last month. American prosecutors are accusing Kris Thorkelson, owner and CEO of Winnipeg-based Canada Drugs.com, his company, and affiliated companies and associates in the United Kingdom and Barbados of illegally importing and selling $78 million worth of unapproved, misbranded and counterfeit drugs to American doctors between 20. Some were improperly labelled and some were contaminated with bacteria after not being stored properly in a cold temperature, prosecutors say. Thorkelson and five other people associated with Canada Drugs, including four Winnipeggers, are facing charges."I believe it is necessary in the public interest that the Court order the arrest of the persons sought, to ensure they remain in the jurisdiction, attend Court appearances as required, and to maintain confidence in the administration of justice," the affidavit says."The persons sought, along with another Canadian in another province, stand charged in the United States with serious criminal offences for which the Requesting State is seeking their extraditions. If convicted, they could face a substantial period of time in jail given that the pharmaceutical drug operation in which they were involved endangered people's health and safety."The knowledge that their extraditions are sought to face such charges may be an impetus for them to go into hiding or flee the jurisdiction in order to avoid the extradition proceedings," the affidavit says. Charged along with Thorkelson are Canada CFO Ronald Sigurdson; Thomas Haughton, president of two Canada Drugs subsidiaries operating in Barbados and the U. K.; Darren Chalus, director of clinical sales for Canada Drugs; and Troy Nakamura, clinical manager for Canada Drugs — all residents of Winnipeg.
