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

A major concern among consumers in the United States is the rising costs of prescription drugs or medicines, prompting a large of uninsured of population, especially the elderly skip doses or avoid taking their maintenance medications. It is perceived that drug importation from across borders such as Canada and Mexico is the solution to reduce the burden of buying expensive drugs in the United States. There has been the latest press release of FDA regarding Canadian pharmacies, and you might be wondering how to proceed with it. 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.

As a consumer, you need to ensure that the Canadian online pharmacy is verified by using an online verification program. You may notice that the website of Canadian online pharmacies may not always show the Canadian pharmacy price, and the prices at pharmacies from other countries, so it is best to call them and inform them that you only want the medication sold from a licensed and legitimate Canadian pharmacy. Canadian online pharmacies that are trusted, established and reputable give their customers assurance that their medicines are safe and effective by telling where their product is dispensed from. There is really no difference in the quality of medication whether they are sold in Canada, United Kingdom, United States, India, and other parts of the world, because pharmacies throughout the world sell brand names of the drug produced in either one or a small number of factories run by multinational pharmaceutical companies. Canadian online pharmacies that are verified properly are often partnered with pharmacies in other countries such as Australia, New Zealand or Turkey to give consumers the lowest price for prescription drugs.

How do you safeguard yourself from online Canadian pharmacies that are fake? Usually, a fake Canadian online pharmacy uses Canadian flag and graphics to dress up their website to look like legitimate, 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. Fake Canadian online pharmacies do not require prescriptions, don’t have valid contact information, don’t sell safe and real medicines, don’t protect financial and personal information, and don’t have licensed pharmacists. A legitimate and real online Canadian pharmacy should have a licensed pharmacist, with valid contact information (phone number and mailing address), can validate prescription, 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.
