Frequently Asked Questions about Drugs from Canada
In addition to our Canadian dispensing pharmacy, we also dispense your medications from international pharmacies and dispensing facilities that are approved by regulatory bodies from their respective jurisdictions. We only affiliate with pharmacies and dispensing facilities that are certified by independent, third-party companies, CIPA and Pharmacychecker.com, who verify CanDrugStore on an annual basis. We ship products to our customers from Canada, Mauritius, New Zealand, Turkey, Australia, United Kingdom, India and the United States.
We will need a valid phone number, as we must establish verbal confirmation of the order before it is processed. The most effective way to confirm an order is to call our toll-free number, 1-866-444-6376, 2 hours after you submit the order. A home address is also required for shipping. An email address is not necessary, but recommended, as we will be sending invoices and tracking numbers through email.
A valid prescription is required from a licensed physician who is able to practice and prescribe medicine in Canada or the United States. Your prescription must be faxed or mailed to us to complete your order.
All prices on CanDrugStore are quoted in American Dollars.
CanDrugStore will not handle controlled and narcotic drugs. It is unlawful to sell narcotic or controlled substances through mail order. If you come across an online pharmacy selling narcotic or controlled substances, please contact the FDA.
An account is created when you submit an order. Your order information can be found once you log into your account. Please feel free to phone us at 1-866-444-6376 regarding any questions, or if you would like help navigating your account.
The best method to confirm your order is to give us a call 2 hours after you submit your order at CanDrugStore for verbal confirmation.
From the time your order is submitted, your medicine has an average delivery time of 2-4 weeks. However, there are several scenarios that may delay the arrival time.
- The order forms are incomplete, illegible, or missing the prescription
- Delays resulting from processing payments
- Canada Post or the United States Postal Service can experience unforeseen delays due to extreme weather or shipping volumes.
- US Customs and the US Food and Drug Administration officers have the discretion to examine and detain your shipments for up to 30 days.
Unfortunately, our Canadian pharmacy cannot transfer prescriptions from other pharmacies located outside of Canada. Orders for prescription drugs require a valid prescription from a licensed physician. In order to complete your order, we require an original copy of your prescription mailed to us or faxed from your doctor.
There is a $9.95 US shipping fee per patient (additional shipping charges may apply for special shipping requirements). All stated prescription drug prices include the prescribing fee and pharmacy dispensing fee.
Our most common payment methods include Personal Checks, International Money Orders and Certified Checks. We will also accept American Express and E-checks. Please ensure a phone number is included when submitting your order.
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.
We offer brand name and generic medications that undergo rigorous quality tests and pass exceptionally high manufacturing standards. Our drugs pass a stringent approval system overseen by the authorities in Canada. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 your physician for further clarification.
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.
