Best Source for 5% Rogaine Minoxodil Foam in Canada?

Hello,I use 5% minoxodil foam on my son to help speed growth of hair that is growing (yes I know it's not going to fix follicles in dormant state due to alopecia) I previously bought a box of 3 bottles from loblaws/superstore pharmacy for $150, and have also seen a box of 6 of the same bottles at costco pharmacy for $160. Any other great low cost sources for this product? unfortunately insurance hasn't covered it in spite of it having a DIN and being prescribed by his dermatologistthank you!See More

My Doctor today is willing to write a script for Topical Xeljanz however she doesn't know where I can buy it from. Is everyone buying the tabs and getting a compounding chemist to prepare it or can I purchase it as a cream without having to buy tabs first and find someone to prepare it for me? Any help would be appreciated. I live in Australia.

This site is great.
