The information provided on Ask PharmacyChecker is neither intended nor implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, nor is it an endorsement of any product or service.
If you are considering purchasing medication from outside the U.S., be aware that, in most circumstances, it is technically not legal for individuals to import prescription drugs; however, U.S. government officials have stated that individuals who order non-controlled prescription drugs from Canada or other foreign sources (up to a three-month supply) for their own use are not being pursued or prosecuted.
PharmacyChecker experts are here to help you afford your medication.
PharmacyChecker answers your questions related to obtaining lower-cost, prescription medications.
We help people afford the medication they need by verifying online pharmacies and comparing their prices. Drug prices are out of control. Americans face the highest medication prices in the world. That's why millions of Americans choose to buy medication from other countries.
It is important to know that buying prescription medication online can be dangerous. Rogue online pharmacies are out there! PharmacyChecker.com checks and monitors pharmacy practice standards of accredited online pharmacies that sell lower-cost, lawfully-manufactured medication.
