Health - Things to look for in Canadian pharmacy reviews
Published on April 23, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

Part of an occasional series focusing on health and saving money.

Canada’s drug regulation system is quite similar to that of the United States, with the only difference that Canadian drug manufacturing companies usually do not require passing through a rigorous drug review process like the US-based companies require. This is mainly because Canadian manufacturers usually develop tested or FDA approved drugs. This saves a lot of R&D costs associated with manufacturing new drugs. As such, Canadian pharmacies can offer drugs at much lower prices, as compared to American pharmacies.

Quite obviously, buying prescription drugs from Canada can help you save a lot of money. Moreover, if you choose to buy online, you can save more. However, not all online Canadian pharmacies are legitimate. Before placing an order from a Canadian pharmacy, be sure to check whether the pharmacy is a member the Therapeutic Products Division of Canada. It is also important to read unbiased Canadian pharmacy reviews. Here are some important things to look for when going through a Canadian pharmacy review.

What to Look for in Canadian Pharmacy Reviews

Some examples of acclaimed online Canadian pharmacies include CouponCanadianPharmacy.com, GoCanadianPharmacy.com, CouponCanadaPharmacy.com, licensecanadianpharmacy.com, BestPriceRX.com and CanadianHealthDrugs.com. You can easily find a lot of reviews about these companies over the internet. Here are four important things to check in any Canadian pharmacy review.

1. Credentials of the Pharmacy: The Therapeutic Products Division of Canada is responsible for regulating Canada's drug supply and distribution. The store you choose should have a license from this agency. You should also check whether the pharmacy has a permanent address and phone number.

2. Requirement of doctor’s prescription: One common misconception about ordering medicines from online Canadian pharmacies is that these pharmacies can take orders without a valid prescription. However, this is not true. On the contrary, ordering drugs without a valid prescription may be a violation of international law. As such, you should be wary of Canadian pharmacies that do not require doctor’s prescription for taking orders.

3. Inventory of medicines: Another thing to look for in a Canadian pharmacy review is whether the store has a huge inventory of medicines. Visit their website and check whether they have all specific prescribed medicines you need in stock. If not, then they may import those medicines from another country. Not to mention, this will cause delay in delivery.

4. Scams: It is also important to check whether the pharmacy you choose has a clean past record. Many online Canadian pharmacies work without the bounds of the law. Make sure that the pharmacy has no record of scams. The best way to know whether the pharmacy has been complying with guidelines set by the Canadian government is by reading reviews about the company on legitimate Canadian pharmacy review websites.

Another very important thing to check is the refund policy of a Canadian pharmacy. Acclaimed drugstores will usually have a client-centric money back policy. This is to ensure that you can get a refund if you are not completely satisfied with the purchase. These are some important things to look for in Canadian pharmacy reviews. Knowing about these things will help you take an informed decision buying drugs from an online Canadian pharmacy.
