First off, it should be important to KNOW the reciever of the Imitrex does not have heart problems.
Secondly, the reciever should refuse the package if asked to come to the Post Office and sign for it.
Third, if the reciever does get the package delivered to their home, do not open it for several days. Yes, they can check once you've brought the package in your home. If by chance they do, it would be soon, and the package would not be opened. You could simply say you had no idea where it came from or what it is, and they could take it back to the Post Office for you.
It is illegal to send medications this way, and as Tony pointed out, they are watching mail.
Once two have agreed on the exchange, delete all e-mails concerning the subject. No trails.
It's truly sad we have to resort to these measures, but there are many who simply can't afford the outrageous prices of their meds.
Another possible approach could be to send the package to the reciever "in care of/yourself" (sender). Include a letter that asks the reciever to hold on to these meds for me so when I come to visit you I'll have them. Again package not opened for several days.
The first route is the best in my opinion though.
