The Government of Canada has provided some tips to minimize the potential risks associated with buying drugs online and recommends the following:
Patients do not do business with a website that:
Refuses to give you a street address, telephone number, and a way of contacting a pharmacist;
Offers prescription drugs without a prescription, or offers to issue a prescription based on answers to an on-line questionnaire;
Claims to have a “miracle cure” for any serious condition; or
Sells products that do not have a DIN (see below) issued by Health Canada.
Make sure you are dealing with a Canadian-based website that is linked to a “bricks and mortar” pharmacy that meets the regulatory requirements in your province/territory.
We recommend Canada Drugs.

More questions about Canada Drugs Direct?
Is a prescription required?
Yes, just like your local pharmacy, we require a valid prescription for your medications; it is required for all prescription medications in the USA. For your valid prescription to be accepted, it must be from a physician licensed to practice in your area of residence. We also require you to FAX us your original prescription to 1-800-859-5270.
Be sure to include your order number on the prescription.
Is there a limit on how much I can purchase?
Yes. You can only purchase a maximum of a 3 month supply of each of your medications, provided that you have a valid prescription for the supply of that medication. If your physician writes a prescription for more than a 3 month supply, we can refill your prescription as the refills become due.
