Let’s Put An End To Concerns About The Safety Of Licensed Canadian Pharmacies

While it is well-known that prescription medications from Canada are less expensive than the same drugs in the U.S., many consumers have concerns about the safety of Canadian drug imports. But is there any real reason for consumers to fear purchasing medications from licensed Canadian pharmacies?

The fact is, drugs purchased from licensed Canadian pharmacies generally come from the same U.S. drug manufacturers that ship them to American pharmacies. Legitimate pharmacies in the U.S. and Canada rarely, if ever, receive counterfeit medications.

In 2003 the U.S. House of Representatives approved importing prescription medications from Canada by a vote of 243 to 186. The U.S. Senate has voted similarly. Many state and local governments are currently purchasing Canadian medications for their employees. These actions by government officials speak volumes about the quality of drugs coming in from across the border.

Canadians drugs from licensed pharmacies are safe — period. So, why has the Bush Administration opposed legalization? The pharmaceutical lobby has enormous influence in Washington — and they are worried about their profits. Millions of Americans are already buying their prescription drugs from Canada. Big drug companies such as Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline have even gone so far as to refuse to sell to Canadian pharmacies that ship medications back to the United States.

Debates about these programs continue in congress and support for legalizing the importation of prescription drugs from Canada goes both ways. Supporters contend that the added pressure will force the American government to allow the importation of prescription drugs from Canada forcing American drug companies to lower their costs. Others against importation believe that Canadian drugs are unsafe so importation is out of the question, and since the cities and states are cutting into the profits of the drug companies by importing from Canada, it is just going to force them to raise prices in America even more.

Does this sound like a safety concern to you?

Online Pharmacies – A Level Above the Local Drugstores

August 14th, 2016

“Convenience” is the keyword that has spelled instant success for the Internet pharmacies. While the traditional drugstores have continued to be the preferred option over the counter drug distribution center, the Internet pharmacies are soon catching up with their popularity. Unlike a decade back, today Internet penetration is around 70% in the United States. More and more people are increasingly relying on the Internet to carry on their transactions. Customers find it easier to order online rather than going all the way and queuing up in front of the nearest drugstore. Patients with severe disabilities and those who are bedridden due to an illness find it difficult to reach the local drugstore to get the medicines. With an online pharmacy, they can now conveniently order drugs without moving out of their residence. Though convenience is a key factor that has given the web-based pharmacies an edge over the local drugstores, there are other factors as well that has collectively contributed to the increasing popularity of Internet pharmacies.

The cost of drugs is on a rise. Patients requiring such expensive drugs over a long period of time feel the pinch more than anybody else. The Internet pharmacies, particularly those based in Canada, offer drugs at discounted prices. The Canadian government has regulated the price of prescription drugs sold in their market; furthermore the low value of Canadian dollar along with time-to-time discounts has made drugs a lot cheaper in the Canadian market.

Most patients do not want their medical status to be revealed in the public. Local drugstores operate in public and thus such confidentiality is difficult to be maintained. Online pharmacies on the other hand practice a far more secure mode of operation. The patient’s details supplied to them during the course of a transaction are kept secure and confidential. Once the order is placed, the drugs are delivered straight to the patient’s doorsteps.

Amazing discounts, low cost, security of patient’s information, good quality and above all the degree of convenience associated with an internet pharmacy has made them a preferred alternative for the patients. Over a period of time online pharmacies (particularly Canada drug pharmacy) are likely to become the most sought after distribution point for prescription medicines.
