How can I find the most reliable Canadian online pharmacy?

Request for Question Clarification by tutuzdad-ga on 18 Jan 2003 09:03 PST
What is your definition of "most reliable"? I doubt there are
statistics to back up a claim such as this if indeed someone were bold
enough to make it. If so, every pharmacy in Canada would be formally
competing for the title. If you could define what you are looking for
I'll gladly help you find it. Would the most popular or widely
recognized pharmacy (store, franchise, chain, company) in Canada
offering online service suffice as an answer perhaps?

Please let me know.

Are you referring to Canadian Online Pharmacies that fill and deliver
prescriptions for people who live in the United States?

Whis canadian pharmacy is the most widely used by Americans? Which
pharmacy has had the fewest problems with sending orders, orders being
received on time, correct orders sent, ease of connecting with a
representative, correct billing.Perhaps the most widely known and/or
most popular pharmacy offering online service would be helpful also.

I compiled a few testimonials from consumers that used Canadian Online
Pharmacies in order to give you a better idea of their reliability
from personal experiences.


Here is a testimonial for Doctorsolve (  )

“After investigating several Canadian pharmacies, my wife and I just
paid $624.77 for a three-month supply of drugs at Vancouver’s
DoctorSolve. These same drugs cost us $1,208.04 buying at Walgreen’s,
Target, and Kmart where we shopped for the lowest prices.  That's a
saving of $583.27 including a Canadian physician’s charge of $39 per
person for rewriting prescriptions - required by Canuck law - and
personal consultations, plus a total of $16 for shipping.”

RXNorth and Teamdrugs appear to be reliable as illustrated in this

“I have dealt with the following two without any difficulty, the
correct medications arrived promptly.”

In this comment in a Google newsgroup Sarah shares a bad experience
she had with Canada Meds.

“Sarah wrote in message: 

Can anyone recommend a reliable, affordable online pharmacy?

I just had a very bad experience with -- I filled out
their online forms, faxed my prescriptions, and waited . . . and
waited . . . I called once and emailed once to check on the status of
my order, and was told by two different employees that my
prescriptions were still being processed.”

Jessica finds that Cross Border Pharmacy is reliable:

“Actually, for Canadian pharmacies the cheapest I've found is Cross
Border Pharmacy ( ) I’ve placed a
couple orders from them and they are very reliable (and nice too!).  I
keep checking other sites and they are always less expensive.  They
charge a flat $10.00 shipping per order (no matter the number of

Someone else wrote:

“I bought drugs from RXNORTH.COM and the drugs never came and were VERY rude and refused to file for postal insurance
even though they charged me for postal insurance.”

The online pharmacies in Saskatchewan must link must make thier
license available online. My inlaws in Arizona seem to think that and both provide
reliable service and patient counselling.

I totally agree with meyer18-ga that to go with Canadian Pharmacies is
the best choice. My Grandpa ordered his mediciation from which is located in Canada.

If you think that site has high prices you might want to try or because my grandma ordered from
there because they had cheaper prices than the first one.

I know of couple more health related websites that might interest you

This one is in Canada and they have cheap prices.

I hope this post will help you out on what ya need
