As prescription medication prices continue to rise in the United States, some Americans are looking north of the border for their solution.

Many are finding their medications can be bought from online pharmacies based in other countries, namely Canada, for much cheaper than what they would cost in the United States.

But some pharmacists in the United States say other countries may lack regulations to ensure that you'll be shipped the correct medication. Experts say that if you do decide to order online, check with your doctor or pharmacist to ensure that you were shipped the correct medicines.
