Ordering Generic Drugs

What are generic drugs?

A generic drug must contain the same active ingredients (the specific chemical ingredients that makes the drugs work) and be equivalent in strength and dosage to the original brand-name product. Generic drugs may differ in color, flavor, or binding. By choosing a generic medication, you can save a significant amount of money.

Are these the same quality medications that I can buy at home?

We offer brand name and generic medications that undergo rigorous quality tests and pass exceptionally high manufacturing standards. While some medication may have a different name or appearance, the active ingredients (the contents that make the drug work) are the same as ones that can be bought from your local pharmacy.

Why do generic drugs look different from brand name drugs?

US trademark laws do not allow a generic drug to look exactly like the brand-name drug. However, while colors, flavors and other inactive ingredients may be different, the drug must duplicate the active ingredients to produce the same medical effect.

Why are generic drugs less expensive?

New brand-name drugs are developed under a patent, giving the company the sole right to sell the drug during the patent period. During this time, a drug company charges more for a brand-name drug to recuperate the development costs such as research, marketing and promotion. When the patent expires, other manufacturers can begin to produce and sell generic versions of the brand-name drug. Often patents expire in other countries sooner than the United States. This phenomenon of differing patent expiry times provides consumers with opportunity to purchase their medications cheaper from Canada and other international pharmacies online.

How can I get the less expensive generic drugs?

Talk to your doctor and ask for prescriptions for generic drugs whenever possible. Less expensive generic drugs can be found through our Canadian drug store database.


Why do I have to fill out a health profile form?

The health profile form helps us understand your unique medical profile for the purpose of your safety. Similar to brick-and-mortar pharmacies, our pharmacists and physicians use the provided information to assess your prescription and potential drug interactions. If necessary, our Customer Care Specialists may contact you or your physician (with your permission) for further clarification.

I'm having some negative reactions with my medication. Is there someone that can help me?

If the reactions are severe, please contact your local emergency service provider. Our Pharmacy Helpline would be happy to assist you with any medication-related issues at our toll-free number 1-855-218-5085.
