For those of us looking online for safe and affordable medication, it’s very disconcerting to hear about the problem of fake Canadian online pharmacies, or any fake online pharmacy, and the myriad ways they can endanger your health, such as by sending counterfeit or substandard medication or engaging in identity theft. We can help you avoid the bad guys.
Just last week the FDA reported that – through Operation Pangea VI – thousands of illegal online pharmacies, including fake Canadian ones, were shutdown to protect Americans from dangerous medication. The FDA should be applauded for shutting down dangerous sites. However, even though there are real Canadian and other international online pharmacies that are safe and have very low drug prices, the FDA continues to warn Americans not to use them through its BeSafeRx program. We believe this confuses Americans about what they need to do to obtain prescribed and affordable medication safely online.
A fake Canadian online pharmacy is essentially a website dressed up with the Canadian flag, maple leafs, with red and white colors, or other graphics of Canada, but without actual ties to Canada. In fact, a majority of so called “Canadian” online pharmacies are based overseas, many in Russia and Eastern Europe. Some of them are even known to have ties to organized crime. Simply put, they are not Canadian pharmacies. Like all rogue online pharmacies, fake Canadian online pharmacies often:
- Don’t require prescriptions;
- Don’t publish verifiable and useful contact information;
- Don’t fill orders through licensed pharmacies;
- Don’t sell real or safe medications;
- Don’t have licensed pharmacist dispensing your prescription order; and
- Don’t protect your personal and financial information.
A real Canadian online pharmacy offers the following:
- Regulated medications that are approved by a respected national drug regulatory authority;
- Prescription fulfillment through licensed pharmacies, dispensed by licensed pharmacists;
- Requirement of your valid prescription, issued by your doctor – NOT through an online questionnaire;
- Verifiable contact information, including telephone number and mailing address;
- Online pharmacy operation by or affiliated with a licensed Canadian pharmacy; and
- The ability for consumers to speak with a licensed pharmacist for counseling;.
You can find real Canadian online pharmacies on PharmacyChecker.com. We have verified that they meet critical safety criteria.
There are a small number of real Canadian online pharmacies that no longer work with a Canadian bricks and mortar pharmacy because they have transferred prescription fulfillment to licensed pharmacies in other countries. They retain the Canadian moniker or have the word “Canada” in their web addresses to keep their original branding and website. That doesn’t mean they are not safe. However, they ought to be transparent and disclose that medications ordered come from pharmacies outside of Canada.
This brings up an important side note: where are your medications really coming from and who is making them? When you buy a prescription medication at your local U.S. pharmacy that does not mean it was made in the United States. Almost half of all prescription drugs sold in U.S. pharmacies are imported. Furthermore, U.S. pharmacies do not inform you who made the active ingredients (the main ingredient that treats you) – in the medication you are taking. Most active pharmaceutical ingredients – 80% according to the FDA – found in U.S. pharmacy prescription drugs are made outside the U.S., mostly in India and China. If you buy a prescription drug from Canada and most other countries the same holds true. Don’t despair, the U.S. and many other countries have strong safety protocols to protect their prescription drug supplies: those same supplies usually just cost much more in the United States.
Here’s a chart to show you the difference between real and fake Canadian online pharmacies. As you’ll see it’s like day and night:
|Real Canadian Online Pharmacies||Fake Canadian Online Pharmacies|
|Sells only regulated medication?||YES||NO|
|Prescription fulfilled through licensed pharmacies and by licensed pharmacists?||YES||NO|
|Requires your valid prescription?||YES||NO|
|Provides verifiable contact information?||YES||NO|
|Protects your privacy?||YES||NO|
|Does not send you spam?||YES||NO|
|Is owned by or works with a Canadian pharmacy?||YES||NO|
This information was very helpful and I found it easy to see the fakes.Thank You
I should add during my own search I found every pharmacy search that came up with a large Viagra ad. I felt were a red sign to avoid that site.
do you have some names of “real” pharmacy that sells cialias,vigra?
Hate to get ripped off. what is a good price for 20mg.
You can find prices for Viagra and Cialis at reliable pharmacies here:
I’m interested in pharmacies that sells cialias, Viagra?
Hi Carlos – There are online pharmacies in our program that sell Viagra and Cialis. You can compare their prices here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com.
Wasn’t very helpful at all but thanks
If you are telling us not to use those pharmacies why does’nt someone do something about the price! Thirty bucks a pill is robbery, I can not afford to pay that much.
I have used these outlets and been abel to aquire Viagra Brand with the pfizer imprint for 3.00 and I see no reason for a prescription.
There are reasons the pill costs $30. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean they are cheating you.
When you get that $3 pill it almost certainly is NOT the real drug. It may contain binder and nothing else.
Color, shape, size, imprint and package are all EASILY faked.
Hi Greg –
Drug prices differ greatly country to country for the exact same drug. Some medications made in the United States cost seven times more in a U.S. pharmacy compared to a foreign pharmacy. We ran some numbers on these price discrepancies: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/news/american_made_prescription_drugs_cheaper_abroad_2013.asp.
The price differences you point out, $30 to $3 pills, are exceptional but sometimes the same drug is sold at those different prices! If the consumer is buying from a licensed pharmacy, then the $3 price is more likely for a generic version, one that is not the exact same as the brand but therapeutically equivalent.
Unfortunately, there are bad people who sell fake medications online. That’s one reason what we do at PharmacyChecker.com is so important. By sticking to verified sites, people are far more safe when buying drugs online.
Hello Mr. Levitt.
I was responding to medical costs in general; not a specific pill nor your organization. But your response caused me to do a little research on you. I was unhappy to find the following:
Care to respond?
Hi Greg –
LegitScript.com published that post as a response to this post – https://pharmacycheckerblog.com/legitscript-not-so-legit that we published five years ago. As we see it, LegitScript’s founder acted unethically, and potentially illegally, by starting his business verifying online pharmacies while he was still working for the U.S. government on Internet pharmacy policies that ended up benefiting his business. That’s wrong. We also brought to light that LegitScript is in alliance with the largest drug companies and U.S. pharmacy trade groups, and that their combined efforts undermine online access to safe and affordable medication, which really hurts Americans. LegitScript has also done some good work by helping shutdown truly rogue pharmacy sites.
Very simply, LegitScript implies or claims things about PharmacyChecker.com that are not true. What is true is that we verify online pharmacies that operate safely, and provide information that help consumers spend much less money on prescription medications. In its blog post, LegitScript identifies a variety of rogue online pharmacy behavior, activities that we do not approve of as well, and tries to imply that we do. I believe some things its founder has written about PharmacyChecker.com are either lies, misleading, or just plain wrong.
You can thank your politicians for the outrageous drug prices in the United States. They are owned by and work for the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. The only option you have us to change the asses in the seats of Congress by voting out those who do not work for you and or have held their seat for DECADES.
You might be an anarcho-capitalist
You can thank the insurance companies not the Pharmaceutical companies. The insurance companies are the culprit! Why does everyone give them a pass and blame the Pharma companies?
Yes there sure are reasons they cost thirty dollars a pill! One very good reason is a CEO of a Pharmaceutical company getting a BONUS which adds up two TWICE what most people paying for the drug ever made in TWO YEARS!! That could very well contribute to a $30.00 per pill price tag! How about the BIG THREE commercials we see on TV every day? You know, drug companies, insurance companies and law firms. Think about it, before the prices went through the roof, we were MOSTLY buying beer and cars! Wouldn’t you like to have been a fly on the wall when that back room deal went down?
What people make in bonus or just their income is often sighted as “unethical” if it is more than the general public gets. Socialism isn’t a good system really. So competition and profit are what make capitalism work. Incentives attract qualified people. I do not see any reason for a person making a huge bonus to be criticized unless their company is losing money or they have truly done something unethical or illegal. It’s really none of anyone else’s business. You are just mad it isn’t you getting the bonus right? Not just anyone can run a large corporation. So, before you speak, how about learning a little first?
Horrible analogy fraught with left wing propaganda.
A CEO’s salary vs earnings before tax and investment is a drop in the bucket for these drug firms.
I want the best CEO I can find if I’m investing in a corporation.
How can you defend the obscene profits of American pharma companies when the EXACT SAME drugs, from the SAME manufacturer — are sold for much less in other countries? Maybe you guys are rich … or maybe you never got sick … but I take a drug that is $30 a pill, every day. How would you like to be in my shoes? Meanwhile, the exact same drug — a GENERIC — is available in Canada for $10 a pill. That’s a savings to me of more than $6,000 a year. Maybe you could absorb that kind of cost.
I can’t. So I buy from Candid and India and have had ZERO problems.
I used to work in pharma, buy the way … in marketing no less. 🙁
Oh, I forgot to mention the huge bonus is what they get when the company’s stock is DOWN! No cheating there!! No sir,You know the people getting gouged lose a ball game they LOSE. Their purchased stocks for their retirement bottoms out, they lose. They pay FAR to much to stay alive long enough to buy MORE overpriced drugs that don’t cure them but give side affects a mile long facilitating MORE drugs to counteract all of the other ones AND even pay their lawyer a portion of the lawsuit against the company, which was DAMNED small compared to what he will pay for healthcare because of the suffering and they LOSE but the CEO gets a BONUS? No cheating there!!
People are tired of being ripped off for medication to make life normal. You know damn well they rip us off. Try going to a pharmacy executives home and tell me these bastards aren’t getting rich off everyone’s misery.
Anyone get texted saying regant healthcare ltd ca?
That’s true…it’s all about greed and cornering the market. I’ve bought from so-called “fake” pharmacies before and got the same exact pill from India that I paid over 2X for on the “approved” site. The trouble is, there is no one committed to rate these online Pharms and so we just shoot in the dark and hope we don’t kill somebody…..like ourselves. The profits from Viagra are staggering…but that’s not good enough for the makers….jacking the price up sky high to collect more profit.
You don’t have to “shoot in the dark” when looking for affordable medication online. If you choose to buy online and purchase medication internationally, we recommend sticking to those websites that PharmacyChecker.com has verified as meeting safe standards of pharmacy practice: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp.
What site did you use ? Curious
Can you tell me if Canadian Pharmacy Meds is a legitimate pharmacy? Their address is:
PO Box 97176

i have received bogus Endocet from a pharmasave in sechelt,b.c.
I believe it is plain tylenol.
I need to have this remaining med analyzed. I have arthritis & DDD. The

What does your Pharmacy Checker Seal look like and where is it usually found on a pharmacy’s web site?
The seal is often found at the bottom of pharmacy websites, or in the about us section. You can view a sample seal here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacies-what-you-need-to-know.asp#seal
Recently “Canada Pharmacy” called me about renewing my prescription. They said they were no longer accepting credit cards and that I should send a check to Vogue Marketing.
Do you know if this is legitimate? I haven’t sent any money yet and they haven’t sent my prescription yet although they said it was processed last week and that they would send it “in good faith.”
Update: I received my prescription from Canada Pharmacy in the mail this afternoon. It appears they are for real.
This is a HUGE scam, buyer beware. Also don’t fall for the fake reviews.
They go by several names, one is rxmaple.com to mention just one.
Hi, can you tell me if Canada pharmacy is legit. I think it’s odd they ask to send checks only to vogue marketing. Thank you,
Hi Lori – It is “odd” but not because there’s something wrong with the online pharmacy, which we have verified as filling orders with licensed pharmacies, requiring valid prescriptions, and meeting other important standards of practice. From our perspective, safe international online pharmacies are now often unable to offer their customers credit card payment processing because U.S. FDA and pharmaceutical companies have pressured VISA and MASTERCARD not to allow it. So there are asking for checks.
I’ve used them over and over and they are legit.
I am in the process of ordering a prescription for my pet from Canada Pharmacy, and I am so nervous! I also thought that sending the check to Vogue Marketing was odd — I am so glad to hear the explanation about sending the check and the comment here from Jennifer that the company is legitimate.
I use them, and they are legit. Also very courteous. I must take a drug that is $30 a pill in the USA (list price), and it’s less than $4 a pill from Canada Pharmacy! The RX comes from India and works perfectly. My doctor actually recommended this pharmacy to me! He sends many patients there because so many of us are being killed by the prices here in the US.
I’m waiting to receive an order from Canada Pharmacy too but was also concerned about their request to make it payable to Vogue Marketing. Gabriel, I see you saying that they’re legitimate but I don’t see them listed. Am I missing something?
Hi David – Please tell me which website you’re referring to (i.e., http://www.SampleCanadaRx.com)? There are a lot of rogue sites that call themselves “Canada Pharmacy”. Then I can tell you if the site is verified by PharmacyChecker.
Just received my prescription from Canada Pharmacy after making my check out to Vogue Marketing. Service was very professional, never pushy. Got the sense they processed my order even before they received my check.
Over the last 5 years I have ordered generic Viagra from an online site. It is cheap 200 pills 220 U.S dollars overal I have been satisfied but a couple of times the strenght has been poor. I believe they are manufactured in India and the quality control is substandard.
where did you order from

recently the patents ran out for viagra,the pharmacist here in Australia advised that within weeks of the patent running out and lower cost alternatives coming on the market the genuine manufacturer dropped the price from close to $30.00 to Below $3.00 a pill. who says that the genuine article was not overpriced. Why would you buy copies when you can now buy the genuine article for the same price.
I do really hope my advice will help somebody!
I can reveal the truth about those Canadian Pharmacies sites as a FORMER EMPLOYEE of such company in Russia. There are dosens of such companies around here in Russia (i don’t really know the exact number) that are barely legal….Your meds actually come from Russia, Turkey, India, Ukraine….and of course meds are NOT FDA APPROVED as claimed on sites. Basically you just have your health at stake when buying this staff…im not saying it’s not all poisonous….but it’s manufactured in large basements in poor unsanitary conditions.
It’s almost impossible to split such companies because they are really kinda masterminds on cheating.
This business brings more money than you saw on “breaking bad” series so here’s always a shitload of IT guys behind every online site to ensure they work impeccable. All content is generated exactly in those companies so that you’ll never find out the truth…for example…they paste fake seals of quality on sites to look credible, some even have their own call centres with english speaking operators. Theres how it all works…everything is fake, so take CARE because it’s a matter of fortune, some organisms digest those meds ok, but for the other it can be deadly experience.
Thanks for sharing your story. It’s those rogue sites that make the work of PharmacyChecker instrumental to helping consumers shopping online for medication.
So why won’t you check the sites that people ask you about? What is this nonsense about looking for ‘yor seal’. Truthfully, what guarentee do we have that you are legitinmate?
Hi Stephanie –
Our Verification Program is open to online pharmacies that can meet our standards that wish to apply. For information about the PharmacyChecker.com seal, please consult this page: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacies-what-you-need-to-know.asp#seal.
Empirical studies, our safety standards, and thirteen years of experience demonstrate that our information is very valuable for consumers looking for affordable medication online.
I have been using Canada drugs on line for 5 years. They always require a Rx and are always prompt with the medication. I was taking Lipitor but went with the generic, Atorvastatin from Canadadrugsonline. The price was significantly less than Lipitor and my lipid blood profile has remained excellent, especially the cholesterol marker. They also honor the number of refills indicated on the Rx by my primary physician.
I had called this canadien pharmacy and had ordered a prescription. Once I figured out they were not regulated I can’t get these idiots to quit calling me. They call DAILY from different out of order phone numbers. They started to now SAY they are US PHARMACY and I have started to curse them every single phone call and they will try to offer 85% discounts and try to keep talking but eventually they hang up. I have started to answer with the awful sounding LINE IS DISCONNECTED ON A HAND HELD RECORDING DEVICE. They call every day, any way to flood them back or do I have any recourse? thanks
Hi Ren – Looks like you ordered from a rogue online pharmacy. We have a page on our website about how to avoid rogue online pharmacies: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/rogue-pharmacies.asp.
Gabriel, there seems to be a large number of sites that have your seal but are on the no good list for the NABP
Why the discrepancies?
Hi A –
By “no good” you mean “Not Recommended” list. Well, there are over 11,000 websites mentioned on that list. Unfortunately, in addition to thousands of dangerous rogue online pharmacies, ones that PharmacyChecker.com also believe are not safe, the NABP adds to its Not Recommended List websites, about fifty, that we have verified and believe are the safest international online pharmacy options available. In other words, the safest non-U.S. online pharmacy that sells medication into the U.S. would be eligible for NABP’s Not Recommended List.
NABP probably reasons that because of the federal restrictions on importing medications for personal use, no international online pharmacy that sells into the U.S, regardless of its safety should be recommended. PharmacyChecker.com believes that it’s misleading to consumers for NABP to include the safest international online pharmacies on the same list as very dangerous rogue pharmacy websites, as it may (and I strongly believe it does) scare people away from the only medication they can afford.
It may not surprise you that the Not Recommended list program was funded with a grant from Pfizer and NABP’s constituencies are the U.S. boards of pharmacy, run by U.S. pharmacists that have commercial interests in discouraging the use of lower cost foreign pharmacies.
For more, see RxRights: http://www.rxrights.org/nabp-report-lumps-real-and-rogue-pharmacies-together/.
Thanks Gabriel, I agree that this entire buy-at-your-own-risk policy is made so much worse by apparently sanctioned sites that promote fear instead of understanding and awareness. Unfortunately, like many other parents, we see the idea of getting affordable drugs from overseas as a horrible idea given the worst case outcome. I have to weigh the possibility of my son given a much stronger medication because it “seems” that his current meds aren’t doing the trick, when in reality they were just sugar pills. Of course worse case gets worse from here, but my other option is not having enough money to provide for the rest of his needs, oh yeah the rest of the family too. Pharmacy support doesn’t really kick in until you are less than 3x the poverty level. I don’t know who can afford a $700 monthly bill for 30 pills, regardless of how far away from poverty they may be. That’s two car payments, easily! I applaud what you are doing, but is there a way to know if these pills are good? A testing option? Where anyone could get their stuff checked, wouldn’t that help stop most of the dummy drugs? The fact that any drug sent from any supplier could be randomly sampled and then that site would be shut down with the speed of Internet bad news. Is the idea of bogus SSRI sweat shops even a real threat? It seems that the profit margins are so wide here in the U.S. that even just a small dip in price would net a huge reward without the need to setup some medication mafia.
Aside from venting, my questions were:
Do we have a way to test these (dubious?) pills?
Do the same factories provide stock for American pharmacies as well as the International drug websites?
I suppose as a sidebar, do you have further links to the association between big pharma and NABP other than grant money?
Hi – That’s a lot to chew on. I think fears of “sugar pills” are really only warranted when it comes to rogue sites not international online pharmacies in our program. Two peer reviewed studies did test the authenticity of medications sold by foreign pharmacies approved in the PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program. The results were perfect. You can find that data here: http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/bejeap.2014.14.issue-1/bejeap-2013-0085/bejeap-2013-0085.xml. This data was recently referenced here: http://www.moneytalksnews.com/should-you-buy-your-meds-through-online-pharmacies-weigh-the-pros-and-cons/.
I’m not sure what “dubious” pills you’re referring to. There are ways to test the authenticity of medications in labs. See the referenced study.
The same factories often do provide stock for American and foreign pharmacies, but by no means all of them.
NABP’s application to become a gatekeeper of sorts for online pharmacy was funded by drug companies: http://www.rxrights.org/rxrights-launches-petition-opposing-new-pharmacy-domain/. There’s more where that came from but that’s for another day.
As I see it most of you are missing the real problem. The problem is politicians who really could care less that we cannot afford meds or good health care for that matter. As long as voters keep re-electing the same politicians who only work for themselves nothing will change. Congress has completely stopped working thanks to Ted Cruz,Mitch McConnell and others who know that there are no penalties for their obstructionism so they will continue to keep giving us the shaft while feathering their own nests with our tax dollars and the millions that they get from lobbyists.
Trying to smear Canadian pharmacies because they sell cheaper medication then the USA is a waste of time. Why does our Government encourage the pharmaceutical companies to ask for such astronomical prices for medication? My father pays $390/month for Jaylin (a prostate medication) out of his $1000/month pension. I pay $356 for an ounce of estrogen cream that I need to use twice a week. How in the world can we keep up with these exorbitant prices? Insurance in this country is good only to charge your huge premiums every month, but when it comes to paying they pay next to nothing. It’s a shame!
You are absolutely right, it is shameful and the gov does almost nothing about it. My international marketing instructor talked about it when I was in college 50 years ago and people are still talking about it today (no significant change).
The law prohibiting Medicare from negotiating with drug suppliers is scandalous. Everyone knows there are at least four prices on most drugs: the list price, the volume discount, the insurance contract price, and the price you sell it for in other countries. Guess which one our tax dollars are paying for.
This may be a stupid question but do they work through your Insurance Co?
International Online Pharmacies cannot accept U.S. health insurance.
Does PharmacyChecker.com charge a to online pharmacies to be verified that they meet critical safety criteria? If so, is it a one time fee, monthly, yearly.
Hi Jen –
The PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program does have application and ongoing program fees to support our work verifying online pharmacies and monitoring them on a continual basis. Information on our program fees can be found here: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/sealprogram/choose.asp.
What can you tell me about Canadian Prescription Drugstore
1275 West 6th Ave Suite 300
Are they legitimate?
Canadian Prescription Drugstore has been verified by PharmacyChecker. You can see their profile information here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/pharmacies/canadianprescriptiondrugstore.com/225/
I ordered Zetia and Crestor for my own personal dog from Prescription Point. I am a licensed Veterinarian with a current DEA license. I waited 45 days and never received the drugs. I called only to be told another Veterinarian would have to right the script. They also told me they called several time and left a message on the answering machine. What a LIE since I don”t have any answering devise period. Also that would be like them telling an MD to have his partner wright the script for ones wife. I WOULD NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM PRESCRIPTION POINT.
I haven’t seen any mention about CIPA (other than the link in the sidebar). What can you guys tell me about CIPA?
CIPA is the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, a group which sets standards for its retail online pharmacy members.
Gee, thanks Henry. I actually found that much out on their website. 😉 I was actually looking for some more detailed info. But, I’ll skip that for now…
How about this question: Why don’t some of these pharmacies take VISA or MasterCard? I’ve had my credit cards compromised before (unrelated) and the only reason VISA can give me is that these pharmacies may be trying to avoid scrutiny from the major credit card companies’ fraud departments. Can you shed some light here?
Hi Holt –
VISA and Mastercard have been pressured to stop working with international online pharmacies, even the safest ones that require a prescription and ship medication from licensed pharmacies. RxRights gives a good explanation of the situation: http://www.rxrights.org/why-has-my-online-pharmacy-stopped-taking-credit-card-payments/.
Thank you. 🙂
I guess the direct bank transfer is the preferred method? Money orders and cashiers’ checks seem to be no safer than sending cash.
I believe the online pharmacies are taking personal checks, e-check and in some cases direct debit, as preferred methods of payment. I don’t think online pharmacies in our program accept direct bank transfers.
CIPA, the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, is a trade association of Canadian pharmacies and people that operate international online pharmacies. Many of their members but not all are also verified in the PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program.
looking for a legimate canada pharamacy that sell generic cialias at a low price. Around $3-$4 a pill would be great 20 mg or stronger if possible.
Any Ideas? can’t afford $15-20 per pill. Thanks foe everyones help
You can find prices for tadalafil, which is generic cialis here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/generic/tadalafil-prices. These prices are for Canadian pharmacies (and other international pharmacies) that we have verified as being safe and reliable, and in many cases you can find this medication for well below $2 per pill.
I recently placed an order with Canada Pharmacy (that was the website) but was turned off when they said send a personal check to Vogue Marketing. Anyone know if they are legit?
I’m sorry you had a bad experience with that pharmacy. Unfortunately they are not one of the pharmacies that we verify, so we cannot comment.
We do have a ratings page for pharmacies that we do verify here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com:8080/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp
I just placed an order with them today. They’ve been calling me for over a year..because I started an order but never finished it because I was concerned about the same thing. They didn’t seem too concerned about payment. They say they’ll send my prescription within 2-3 weeks even though they won’t charge my back account for 30 days. They said my prescription would send out regardless of me sending in the check I promised in a couple weeks. I’m feeling like I want to wait until I get my order before I send in payment. The whole thing doesn’t make business sense to me. And things that sound too good to be true usually are. I’ll try to update this if the prescription ever really arrives.
Unlike some online pharmacies, pharmacies listed on PharmacyChecker.com are monitored to ensure they have good business practices. Please take a look at this page for more information on our Verification Program: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/safe-online-pharmacies-verification-program.asp. Always look for the PharmacyChecker seal on the pharmacy website. To see a list of some of the pharmacies we verify, see our Ratings Page: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp
Where can I order Flagyl from a legitimate website with no prescription. Sick of paying these stupid doctors to run these expensive ass tests for crap I do not have. I know for a fact I have trich and cannot get the prescribed meds because these fools say my test is negative. Wife popped positive so what the hell does that tell you?!?!?
We do not recommend ever attempting to purchase medication without a prescription from a doctor. Pharmacies listed on PharmacyChecker.com require a valid prescription. See this blog post: https://pharmacycheckerblog.com/your-prescription-is-required-to-order-from-a-pharmacychecker-approved-online-pharmacy
I agree Trey. I have low testosterone levels for 24 year old but doctors won’t give me clomid or testosterone shots . Willing to take my chances without Rx
Could you tell me please if this site: http://canadian-pharma.com/ is real? Can i trust it? Thank you !
That website is not one of the ones we have verified. When looking for safe pharmacies online, you should always look for the PharmacyChecker.com seal. See this page for details: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/safe-online-pharmacies-verification-program.asp
I think that the following online pharmacy is a scammer: [DELETED WEBSITE] I ordered 30 pills of generic Viagra from them last November and found out that their product had no effect whatsoever. I know this because I tried same kind medication from other online pharmacies before. I emailed them twice in the hope of returning the product and getting a refund, but they never responded. What other options Do I have? At I least we should expose them and stop them. Thanks.
Seems like a scammer. That’s why it’s critical to only use verified online pharmacies. https://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp.
Hope all is well. For over eight years, Canadian or US Pharmacy has been calling me, three to four times a day trying to sell me Viagra or Cialia. I never nor will I ever buy anything from them. I have asked them to stop calling. I tried the nice approach and I have tried the nasty approach. Nothing works. Them FCC, FTC and the phone company tells me that there is NOTHING that they can do because the company is in India. I am begging you to please help me stop this from continuing.
Hi Ben – I’m sorry you’re dealing with a scammer, rogue company. I have been subjected to those same phone calls and emails for years, because of the online research we do. Your story helps others to avoid ever dealing with unverified online pharmacies.
I get a phone call at least once a week. Today I told “Steve” from the Canadian Pharmacy as it showed up on my phone that the 4 kilos of heroin I shipped to him was signed for at his company and I need payment or my cartel suppliers are going to be pissed. Steve hung up. I guess Steve doesn’t like it when you play their game with them. Next week if “Steve” calls I may tell him the cartels are sending Saul to deal with him.
If you’re hounded by unwanted calls, don’t suffer, you could 1) change your number or 2) you might try a DIGITONE ProSeries Blocker for about $96 from the Mfr. or from amazon. It can handle hundreds of numbers, area codes, exchanges and all hidden caller-ID calls. I have no connection to them, I found it by online search.
What about people who cannot find a doctor to prescribe a medication that was used by years before her long time doctor passed away?
Hi Sammie – This is on my mind a lot and it haunts me. People can’t afford a consultation to obtain a new Rx and the no-prescription sites are a risk. This is not medical advice but it’s to note that some communities in the U.S. will have free clinics nearby that you can use to obtain a prescription.
Order from them and they will call you EVERY DAY asking for another order. Sometimes they call as many as three times a day. They say they are Canadian but have strong Pakistani accent. Over and over and over they call. Over and over and over.

I have the same problem as Quincy above. They are an illegal pharmacy and their phone number ( I got this surreptitiously, but I have called them so I know they go by the Canadian Online Pharmacy at 404-410-3595, they are located in Atlanta GA. They don’t have a website that I can find.
Any 1had luck with meds care online. Com?
How do you get rid of a company? They call constantly, day, night, weekends, etc, sometimes 2 to 3 times a day. Every time we tell them to take us off their calling list, we still get calls. I see no contact for this action.
Hi Diane, I’d say try blocking the phone numbers via your landline or cell. I received a similar call at least 5 times a day until I finally blocked the phone number.
Someone know https://canadian-generics.com
They take my money and i did’t recive the pills
I have bought Atacand 16 mg from Canada Pharmacy for many years. The price is much less than here in the US.
I have been pleased until recently when I received my pills with completely foreign language, both on the box and the papers inside. I could not tell where it was made.
I am not sure I want to continue getting their meds.

I made the mistake of using a “Canadian Pharmacy”. Do Not give your usual email address or you phone number, They will constantly fill your email with Spam Ads !! They will only call you to Spam you by phone !! Bruce
