    Hi glkjim,

    I’m so sorry you’re having a problem getting the meds that work for you. Unfortunately, we don’t have information on Canadian PAPs. Have you contacted Glaxo to see if they offer a PAP in Canada? You can reach them at: 866-728-4368. I hope that they can help. -All Best, Donna ( team)
