Unfortunately, medication can be very expensive in the United States. 
Meanwhile, the same drugs can be significantly cheaper in Canada and other countries. This is why many American patients end up buying their medications from international pharmacy websites online.
But who runs these pharmacy websites? And are they safe?
We here at Canada Drug Warehouse understand that buying medication online can feel risky. But as a Canada Drug Pharmacy service, we value our patients’ health, safety, and peace of mind. So we aim to help you learn more about buying prescription drugs safely on the Internet.
If you’re new here, this article will serve as an introduction to buying affordable medication online in general.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is buying medication online safe and legal?
While you should always consult with a lawyer for legal advice, we recommend that you read the FDA’s position on buying drugs online.  In general, the FDA does not prosecute people for importing medication for personal use into the USA. Millions of Americans import medications every year from safe and affordable online pharmacies.
At the end of the day, safety is paramount and something we take very seriously at Canada Drug Warehouse and is the reason why we have a 100% safety record.
Are all your drugs from Canada?
No, Canada Drug Warehouse works with licensed pharmacies and fulfillment centers around the world. The pharmacies we work with are licensed by the regulatory bodies of the pharmacies’ jurisdictions. This means your drug’s packaging may look slightly different from what you’re used to but its coming from a pharmacy that is appropriately licensed.
If you prefer your drug to be shipped from a specific location (i.e., an English-speaking nation like Canada), you can request this. As long as there is a supply, we will honor your request.
Why are your products so cheap?
In Canada and elsewhere, government entities negotiate pricing with pharmaceutical companies. This ensures that our medication remains relatively affordable for most residents. The United States does not currently have a similar system.
