I have an Rx for Latisse from my family doctor but three Pharmacies have told me they don't have it and don't have access to it. They said to try a Spa? How is is that a Spa can sell something that needs a Prescription?

I have an Rx from my Family doctor and have been to the Clinic Pharmacy and two Shoppers Drug Marts and none of them have Latisse. Disappointed! I've been using extensions for a few years and finding that my natural lashes are thin and weak...I'd like to get away from them and back to natural...so I was thinking Latisse would be a good place to start. The Shoppers said I'd have to find it at a Spa. How is it that Spas can sell something that we need a Prescription for?

Can I trust some one in kijiji who sells Careprost (generic Latisse) just for $25? He says that he is an Authorized dealer of Careprost in Toronto with fresh authentic products - guaranteed- coming from the manufacturer.

I just found out from my Botox doctor that Latisse is available generally in clinics in Canada that offer botox (but not dental offices). Just ask your botox doc. Just google latisse and the name of your city. You should be able to find a number of places. Most places charge $150 a bottle. My doctor office is much cheaper but he only sells to his patients (bonus!, I saved lots:::)))). I guess you have to call around and ask.

Just want to pass my info out of Vancouver. I just Googled Latisse Vancouver and easily found a few clinics that are already set up for Latisse. Generally it is $150 a month but some clinics will likely offer promotions in the beginning. I was told November 16 by one clinic. Also it will be available from a specialized Latisse pharmacy but not your regular local pharmacy. However, you will still require to get a prescription from the certified clinics. The cost will be the same.

Canadians are only weeks away from the Latisse results other RealSelf users have been talking about since the lash growth medication won FDA approval in 2008.

According to Dr. Arie Benchetrit, a Montreal plastic surgeon, Latisse has been approved by Health Canada, and Allergan representatives are busy meeting doctors throughout Canada ahead of the November 15th launch.

 "The suggested price will be $150.00 Canadian dollars per kit. There will probably be some promotions at launch so stay tuned," says Benchetrit.

In addition, some clinics already have samples that can be given to patients.

More than 150 RealSelf community members have shared their experiences with Latisse so far. Ninty percent of users say that Latisse is "worth it"--one of the highest ratings on RealSelf.

I believe you can take it to any pharmacy to have it filled. Have you tried taking it to your regular pharmacy?

As mentioned above, Latisse will be available in Canada this November. It is a Class F drug meaning it is only available by prescription in a doctor's office and not available in pharmacies.

Hi Hazel, Latisse will be available around September 2010. You will need a prescription from your doctor and will be able to get the product everywhere. Health Canda has given its approval, so it will be launched in fall. Hope, this information helped.

The above comments was submitted in March 2009; it is now October 2009 and I am wondering whether there is any progress concerning Latisse availability in Canada?

Did you see the above answer from Dr. Benchetrit?

us Canadians are still waiting for the product to become available here. Health Canada has not given approval, yet, as research and testing is still underway to ensure its safety and effectiveness. But not to fret - Toronto Cosmetic Clinic will have Latisse as soon as Health Canada gives the green light!

How much longer is it expected for the wait for approval

Does anyone know if it will be covered by most health plans?

I am happy to announce that Health Canada has finally approved Latisse and it will be available as of November, 2010. We already have samples in our Cosmedica clinic in Montreal that we are trying on selected patients.
