Hmm. The willingness for pharmacies to carry infrequently used drugs may be proportional to the margins they can make from the drug.

So, the reason they have it w.o. special order may be because they can charge $100 a month.

To be honest, I'm not 100% sure. I know in Ontario, there are caps on what pharmacies can charge for certain drugs (i.e. most common antidepressants, antibiotics etc.). However, other drugs have no cap.

I remember paying over $50 for 30 x 10mg of generic fluoxetine from a Canadian Wallmart in 2009. Outrageous.
