Sources for inexpensive prescription Rapamycin

My understanding is that in the U.S. Rapamycin is expensive with prescription, but it can be purchased overseas for much cheaper. Recommendations for pharmacies (compounding or otherwise) that have websites where it can be purchased if you have a prescription? Canada would be ideal.

    Well, that is certainly disappointing.

    I have just placed an order though not funded it yet. I was hoping to use their echeck payment method but can't figure out how to do it. I am not willing to send sensitive banking information in an unsecured email format. But if the product is not really rapamycin....

    Steve, what was your sirolimus level when tested after using a more "legitimate" source?

    • Van I have no idea whether Dropshipmd md supplies real Rapamycin. It seems that some have also been happy taking the placebo I purchased as well. I do not have any particular concerns about payment mechanisms or the state of their office. Do you know for certain you are taking Rapamycin? Have you had a level checked? Even taken once per week as most of you folks would, a level taken the next day would likely show a “toxic” level because the normal values are designed for trough levels.

      Steve Roedde Are uou kidding.  Bicon has a AAA rating manufactures and ships $100 Billion of drugs around the world every year. They are much more reliable than this site.  I would have never ordered from here.  Check Dun and Bradstreet, Linkin.

    • Van No need to be hostile. Are you certain your Rapamycin is made by the manufacturer stated? I have a Pinarello bike that hardly anyone can tell from the real deal... except its not. $780 for the frame instead of $8K. There are counterfeit bikes, counterfeit handbags ... and counterfeit drugs. How do you know? I was burned once. Now I'm more cautious. Has anyone purchased from dropshipMD and had their pills tested? Or a serum level done? That would go a long way to reassure me.

      Steve Roedde There are aliens in Area 51 also.  All of the conspiracy theories are one thing for fly by night firms but established firms that is ridiculous.  I guess Pfizer or Novartis will be the next target.  Anything short of complete drug analysis is very suspect.

    • Van sarcasm is often amusing... but unsurprisingly you missed my point. I’ll try and be more clear for you... because you seem to have difficulty with nuance and simple concepts. I was not implying that the big pharma firms (either brand name or generic), were in the business of making fake drugs. I was suggesting that in many nations (China comes to mind), knock-off products are a winning business model. This applies to branded medications as much as handbags. So (and pay attention so as to not misunderstand again), it is conceivable that a drug with a particular “brand”, marking or insignia, stamped on the pill, may not in fact, be manufactured by the company identified. Again, because you seem to have difficulty comprehending a simple concept, I am providing an explanatory link.

      Ozone8 I was just what's apping with an india manufacturer that I found under a website that lists almost all pharmaceutical distributors and their prices and the one I found to be the cheapest had a pretty high minimum requirement to even place an order. So that makes it that much more concerning to chance since they wont sell a small handful so you can check it out. Smh

  • I have done more hard thinking about my experience with placebo sold as “RapaPro” purchased through the AAS. I implied that the store itself is complicit in the fraud. This is possible, but not certain. I know nothing of their supply-chains or who makes their products. Although they are ultimately responsible for selling mis-labelled placebo, it is possible that they have been victims, not perpetrators of this fraud. However, if this is the case, they should provide  clear, transparent and complete information about how things went so terribly wrong. Until then, I’d have to view any product sold by them with suspicion. As for other suppliers such as Dropshipmd, at the moment, I will go back to the grossly overpriced “Rappamune” and suck up the $12 per mg. I can sell some stuff. However, if anyone can offer evidence that any of these companies sell the real deal, I will be willing to take another risk.

    • Steve Roedde the manufacturer of the RapaPro is Profound Products .  They make so many other anti-aging / health products , and have a website as well , although they don’t sell to the public .  I’ve purchased and used lots of their supplements , including RapaPro , MetPro(Metformin ), NalPro(low dose Naltrexone), and just  recently DasaPro ( Dasatinib).   They have always seemed a reputable company , as their products are carried at other places as well , so disappointed to hear about your experience !  You may wish to contact Profound Products  directly . I’ve emailed them before regarding product availability, and they responded promptly.

    • angie4life , I'll leave it to the AAS to deal with their manufacturer. As I said, that the drug was fake is certain... How wide the fraud goes, and what drugs are involved... I do not know or care. I've done my bit to wann folks.

      angie4life To me it is disappointing that there has been no response here from the people involved with AAS. Steve posted his lab results and described his regimen of taking RapaPro. Something is going on there.

      And the COA that was kindly provided really does not indicate the existence or lack of rapamycin. It is of no value.

      I am still waiting to complete my RapaPro order.

    • Ozone8 , I agree , and believe IAS should be concerned as well , as they carry other products from Profound as well .  I just ordered DasaPro (Dasatinib) , and do hope it’s the real deal .... the manufacturers’s website (PROFOUND PRODUCTS), looks very professional, and states they’ve been around since 2001 as wholesale distributors for innovative products of interest to “the Antiaging physician and the life extension enthusiast “.  I’ve ordered so many products manufactured from them in the past , and never had any suspicion they might be inert medications .... i sure hope not !

    • ....a poor mans chemical analysis is to crush and taste a US sirolimus pill, and remember it’s taste (spit out if you wish), then taste the Indian sirolimus and see if the taste is different before you try an expensive lab spectro analysis.

    • are we there yet The serum trough testing is widely available and probably not too expensive... no spectographic analysis required. If the rapamycin is prescribed by an MD... quite possibly covered by insurance as well...

  • Using goodrx app I buy 500 mg tablets of metformin at 180 pills for under $18 or about 5 cents per pill all made in reliable America.  And get sirolimus using goodrx from Kroger at quantity 20 of 1mg for $100. Or about $5 per 1mg pill.

    i have faith in US pharmacies for quality more than foreign sources. However, dasatinib is so costly I would consider the risk of a foreign source.

      are we there yet  Yes I did the same thing.... and got mine through Walmart pharmacy and am paying about 4 dollars and 30 cents a tab using the same Goodrx coupon. I bought 120 at a time though. However since a new study came out that Sirolimus suppresses NAD I have been hesitant to use it. Also I travel alot and am exposed to more germs since I am around lots of people so I have been hesitant to do that as well....Dr Green says that it gives one vulnerability to regular germs.... not sure what to do with this...

    • garland ... I agree..I adapt and have been happy with 2 to 3 milligrams per 7 day cycle. Less than half of Dr. greens protocol. And if I am going on a airplane, or get a flue shot, I skip a weekly dose cycle before it. Sirolimus does make one feel younger. Espicially if you had stiff or sore joints. Very anti inflamitory. I also take NAD supliments but have noticed little from them.

      are we there yet   Thanks for your ideas... I like them and will try to implement them.. I did talk briefly with Dr Green and he suggested a smaller dose as well. I just read a study done on NAD which compared injections with oral use and found that the NAD only really got to the organs with the injections. When done orally it is processed by the liver. I had one injection and one 3 set series of NAD absorbed through the skin. Seems to work that way. I do notice some results with NAD but I am taking 500 mg and also with 100 mg of pterostilbene which is supposed to make it more available....I just read that study so maybe the fact that Siromilous suppresses NAD is less important if it is not so absorbed. I plan on getting another injection when I head back to Florida and will try to get a couple of them. THe NAD which is absorbed through the skin I am not sure if that works any better then the pills... but it is fairly cheap....

    In 28 years IAS never had an issue and there’s no need to distrust the supply chain. However we’ve halted RapaPro sales in the meantime until the results are in and we will take steps accordingly when we have them.

  • Some of you might find this article...and perhaps the book "Bottle of lies" of interest. I listened to a podcast with the author.... frightening! Sadly, at the moment, I would not trust any offshore supplier...or their tests... Unless the testing was done by a reputable body in the USA or Western Europe. The history of generic drug fraud is long and deep. That said... Big Pharma and their patent-protection and extortion prices an obscenity. I'm back to paying $310 per month for Brand name (Rapamune) in Canada... Sigh!  I'm not sure of the solution... but I am 100% certain I was the victim of drug fraud... cynically initiated by someone...

    • Steve Roedde $310 per month for rapamune or sirolimus is 60 1mg pills if you if you use the goodrx coupon app. That save me a lot, and it is free. I agree India is prone to fraud.
