Alternative generic treatments?

Hey everybody! It’s very nice to meet all of you. I’m 69 years young and I'm going to start some prostate cancer treatments. They prescribed me doxorubicin which is pretty cheap. They also told me to look into Viagra to go with the doxorubicin. However, at my age, and still working, I don't have a lot of money. I was wondering if anyone had any tips as to how I can save some money. Unofficially, my doctor suggested looking into alternatives such as “generics” and when I asked about more information he gave me some reassurance that Canadian pharmacies might be a good option but I’m very nervous about getting into something I know nothing about and risking my health. Does anyone happen to have any insight about this, or has anyone ordered from any of these sources? Please let me know as soon as possible. Feel free to message me privately if you prefer that to posting publicly. Thank you so much for any help in advance, as well as your time and support.

It would be helpful if you would tell us about the history of your prostate cancer (Gleason score, stage and prior treatments). Perhaps that would explain the proposed chemotherapy with doxorubicin. And where are you located? USA, Canada or someplace else?

Regarding Canadian pharmacies, some are trustworthy, but I don't know which ones. Some on-line 'research' might help.

Glad to see you took my advice and opened a new thread on this topic.  For the benefit of others, this is the response that I posted in response to your other post previously:

I can tell you that there are many "good" discount pharmacies available online.  I've been using ProgressiveRx for years to buy daily dose cialis, which only costs me around 60 for a 3 month (90 pill supply) which is about 2/3rds less than what Walgreens will charge me for the same medication. 

ProgressiveRx has offices in the State of Washington but the drugs are made and shipped from Bangalore, India. Never had any problems in the shipment and/or quality of any medications received by me from them.

You can find their website here: http://www.progressiverx.com/store/

They also get good feedback on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ProgressiveRx
