How do I order a 3-months' supply if different quantities are listed, but my prescription is for 90?

Answered by Gabriel Levitt, MA | Posted March 14, 2019

The pharmacies listing medications on our website are required to follow PharmacyChecker Verification Program standards and guidance policies, which permit pharmacies to market, sell, process and/or dispense internationally a maximum 3-months' supply of non-controlled medication pursuant to a valid prescription authorizing a 3-months' supply quantity.

Ordering a 3-month Supply from Online Pharmacies

In many cases, based on the packaging of prescription medications outside the U.S., medication dispensed from verified international online pharmacies is dispensed in the manufacturer's original sealed package of 90 to 100 tablets/capsules. These packages have individual blisters, often in strips of 10. These are usually referred to as "blister packs."To place an order, consumers should order the quantity that is closest to a 3-months' supply. For example, if the medication is dosed as 1 tablet/capsule taken once daily, a 3-months' supply is 90 tablets/capsules. For medication available in a box of 100 (10 x 10 blister packs), the consumer with a prescription for 90 capsules with 5 refills would order 100. 

Ultimately, the pharmacist of the particular pharmacy that dispenses your prescription is responsible for determining whether a prescription is valid and can be dispensed in the amount ordered by the consumer. This decision is based on based on various laws, clinical factors, and professional judgement of the pharmacist.

Verified Online Pharmacies

Information regarding processing and dispensing of prescriptions is provided by each online pharmacy listed on our site. Questions regarding your specific order need to be directed to the pharmacist of the online pharmacy of your choice. You can access the pharmacy's website by clicking on the pharmacy's logo. This will direct you to their website, which will provide instructions for how to contact the pharmacist.

The PharmacyChecker Verification Program requires online pharmacies to provide consumers who have ordered medication with access to a pharmacist for consultation, and require that they publish a working telephone number and valid mailing address on their website. Most members have a "Contact Us" on their websites, which also typically includes their business hours. Some pharmacies also have a "Live Chat" option.
