Israel grabs a share of U.S. drug market
Lenore Ward of Palm Harbor has been ordering prescription drugs through Canada for the past few years and has been pleased with the savings.

But several months ago, with the prospect of saving even more, she tried a different offshore drug source. After seeing an ad for in a Jewish newspaper, the 72-year-old library volunteer tried ordering generic Zyrtec through the Israeli prescription broker.

"I figured I'd take a chance," Ward said of the fast-acting imported antihistamine that was 70 percent cheaper than brand-name Zyrtec purchased locally.
