Yes, this rings true, but my Doc did tell me that insurance was the problem in my case, not the college. He did refer me to a specialist, (gerontologist) but they weren’t even aware of Rapamycin as an anti-aging treatment. So it sounds like it will take a while, but all this communication adds up.
The only insurance issue would be if you were looking to have the drug covered by some extended health insurance. OHIP would only cover the drug for transplant patients and your drug plan wouldn’t cover it for anti aging. Your physician could write the script but you’d be paying out of pocket.
So I’ve had my package delayed from Medkoo in North Carolina, I suspect I will never see it if customs decides to hold on to it. What happens from here, have people had similar issues and what basically happens…
Thanks for sharing

To be clear, I was referring to the doctor’s malpractice insurance, which was an obstacle to the doc prescribing Rapa off-label. He was willing to do so otherwise.
Then that makes sense. If something were to go wrong his malpractice insurance wouldn’t cover him.
I’ve had two successful orders from them into Canada. Super quick. I was advised I would have to pay half for a repeat shipment, but so far so good.
How many tablets in each order? Just curious how many you are able to get each time…
I did one order of 180 tabs of rapamycin. The other order was some LDN and other things. Box about the same size. Had both in hand in about two weeks from ordering.
They were labelled “medicine for personal use”. Needed a magnifying glass to read it.
Yes, but it’s not clear to me why that is an issue in Canada, while it’s not a problem in the US, which is generally considered to be more litigious. Maybe Dr Green set a key precedent by being first to do it, and took a risk in order to help people.
It’s because the professional conduct is overseen by a regulatory college. A committee of physicians that work for the college will decide on complaints issued to the college. Those physicians are typically under informed and heavily biased in their opinions. It is the weakest in the profession that ends up in government and teaching institutions because they can’t survive in private practice. We saw many examples of this during the pandemic where major decisions were made by under qualified people on government and it resulted in a lot of rules that made no sense. Eg. Wearing your mask to your dinner table and then going maskless for your meal. If this group of physicians is under informed about rapamycin, which they are certain to be, then their ruling will be against the prescribing physician.
