Are you wary of buying Canadian mail order prescriptions, or wondering how to make the right choice from all of the Canadian pharmacies online? It's wise to be cautious, but there are significant savings available to those who know what to look for when purchasing Canadian prescription drugs over the internet.
- First, make sure that you are buying from a licensed Canadian pharmacy. Canadian pharmacies are overseen by regulatory bodies in each province. For example, pharmacies in British Columbia, Canada are accredited and regulated by the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia. Look for a pharmacy license number and contact information including a physical address, phone number and the name of the Pharmacy Manager. If you have any questions or concerns about the legitimacy of a British Columbian pharmacy, you can contact the College at 200-1765 West 8th Avenue; Vancouver, BC; V6J 5C6, or online at http://www.bcpharmacists.org.
- Second, look for a Canadian drug store that is accredited by the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA). CIPA is the only organization in Canada with a licensing program to certify Canadian online pharmacies to provide prescription drugs to international customers. CIPA certification ensures that the pharmacy is licensed, reputable and adheres to stringent safety protocols. CIPA member pharmacies have provided one million patients around the world annually with Canadian prescription drugs since 2002, with a perfect safety record.
- Third, look for the PharmacyChecker Seal. PharmacyChecker checks the credentials of Canadian online pharmacies and allows consumers to quickly and easily compare drug prices and Canadian pharmacy reviews. PharmacyChecker's online pharmacy verification program is the largest and most accepted in North America, and both Yahoo! and MSN require PharmacyChecker.com verification of their Canadian online pharmacy advertisers. A Google search will reveal a number of sites offering Canadian pharmacy reviews should you feel the need for a second opinion.
