How do you check this? Easy. Just call the pharmacy and speak with their registered pharmacist. If this is not possible, avoid this pharmacy.
Avoid foreign-based online pharmacies
Buying medicine from unapproved foreign sources is not safe. When you purchase drugs from a foreign source, there is no assurance as to what you will receive or where the drugs will actually come from. For example, many sites claiming to be Canadian pharmacies actually obtain their supply of medicine from regions such as Asia, Central America, South America, the Middle East, or Eastern Europe. In many of these regions, the quality standards are not as stringent as those of the United States, and the sale of counterfeit drugs runs rampant. While we realize the sale of counterfeit prescription medicine can occur anywhere, it is much more prevalent in developing foreign countries. Drugs obtained from these countries are not subject to the same safety standards enforced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the medicine obtained there may be unsafe, not authentic, or of questionable purity.
Don’t skip getting a prescription from your doctor
If you are ever asked to sign a waiver that releases the pharmacy from any legal action prior to ordering your medicine you know you should avoid this pharmacy.
