Affordable and Quality Medicines: Safe Importation of Medications From Canadian Pharmacies

A major concern among consumers in the United States is the increasing expenditure on prescription drugs or medicines, and because of this most person who are not insured, especially the elderly avoid taking their medications or tend to skip doses. Drug importation available across the border is considered as a costs-cutting measure, relieving the burden of buying expensive drugs in the United States. Just recently, a press release from FDA regarding Canadian pharmacies stirred the thoughts of many consumers, and somehow caused a little confusion on how to find one. FDA already acknowledges the fact that there are legitimate Canadian online pharmacies selling cheap medicines, provided that consumers are properly guided on how to find the right one, and therefore it is safe to do online transactions such as processing online orders.

One way to safely obtain an imported drug from a Canadian pharmacy is verifying through an online Canadian pharmacy verification program. Canadian online pharmacies may not show the Canadian pharmacy price on their website, but you can always call them and inform them that you only want the medication sold from a licensed and legitimate Canadian pharmacy. A reputable Canadian online pharmacy will always tell where their product is dispensed from, to give their clients assurance that they are safe and effective. Pharmacies around the world sell brand names of the drug produced in either one or a small number of factories run by multinational pharmaceutical companies, and there’s no difference in the quality of medication whether they are sold in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, India, and others. Verified Canadian online pharmacies are often tied-up with pharmacies in other countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and Turkey, to give you the lowest price for prescription drugs.

How can you protect yourself from fake online Canadian pharmacies? A fake Canadian pharmacy’s website may use the Canadian flag, with red and white colors and the maple leaf, and other graphics of Canada, but are actually based overseas such as Eastern Europe and Russia, and no actual ties with Canada. A fake online Canadian pharmacy often doesn’t require prescriptions, no valid contact information, doesn’t have licensed pharmacists, doesn’t sell safe and real medicines, and doesn’t protect financial and personal information. The qualities of a real Canadian online pharmacy includes having a licensed pharmacist, validates prescription, with valid contact information (phone number and mailing address), with regulated medications as approved by a respected national drug regulatory authority, affiliated or operated by a licensed Canadian pharmacy, and offers licensed pharmacists to give free counseling.Overwhelmed by the Complexity of Medications?
