Q. Is there a shipping charge for every prescription?

A. Shipping charges are always $15.00 USD, per order shipped (maximum 4 items), not per prescription. All dispensing fees, physician review fees, and interdisciplinary consultation fees are included in our prices. (If two people from the same address order at the same time, there is only a single shipping fee because all of the medications will be sent in the same package.)

Q. Are all brand name American prescription drugs available from Meds Via Canada?

A. No, but most brand name prescription drugs are available through Meds Via Canada. We also provide a large selection of generic medications that match the brand name formulations. Ask your prescribing doctor to contact us to determine if the brand name (or its generic equivalent) will suit your needs.
BACK  TOP  Pricing  Brand/Generic  Order/Shipping  Privacy/Security


Q. What is the difference between brand name prescription drugs and the generic drug equivalent?

A. A generic drug is a medication for which the original manufacturer has lost its original patent protection and other drug manufacturers have produced the exact same medication at a much lower price for the consumer. The generic drug is the exact same medication as the original brand name drug, and because of strict industry regulations enforced by the federal government these drugs must provide the same therapeutic effect as the brand name drug.

Q. What is the quality difference between my American doctor's prescribed drugs and those offered by Meds Via Canada?

A. Canada and the United States share the same exceptionally high standards in the production of drugs and medication. In a few cases, prescription drug from Canada will use a different name but will be of equal quality and strength as the brand name prescription prescribed by a US doctor.
BACK  TOP  Pricing  Brand/Generic  Order/Shipping  Privacy/Security


Q. Are the generic drugs that you sell safe?

A. Yes, Canadian generics are just as safe and effective as US generics. Just like the FDA in the US, Canada has a government agency that tightly monitors the safety and quality of all drugs sold in Canada.

Q. Why do the pills I received look different than the ones I get from my local pharmacy?

A. If you are used to Brand Name pills and you have ordered a Generic from us, the pills we send you WILL LOOK DIFFERENT. Generics do not look the same as the Brand Name products, even though they have the SAME ACTIVE INGREDIENT and work in EXACTLY THE SAME WAY. In addition, the same Brand Name pill may look slightly different in Canada than it does in the US. For example, Celexa 20mg is a peach colored pill in the US, yet the Canadian pill is white and a little bit smaller than the US pill. Both pills are Celexa 20mg, both have the SAME ACTIVE INGREDIENT, and both are made by the SAME COMPANY. But, for whatever reason, the manufacturer decided to make the Canadian pill a different color. Lastly, when comparing 2 different Generics, they WILL LOOK DIFFERENT if they are made by 2 different companies.

Q. What is the best strategy for ordering new and repeat prescriptions?

A. The best ordering strategy is to have the prescription written for a 3-month supply (rounded up to the nearest manufacturer packaging size). Another good tip is to have at least 3 repeats included on the original prescription, to expedite the repeat process. Combining these two strategies allows you to get an entire year's supply (4 shipments a year) with the least possible shipping charge. It also allows visits to your physician to co-incide with your prescription schedule.

Additionally, the packaging and shipping may take a few days of that time as well. We strive to have the medications to you as soon as possible.
