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.
Why doesn’t the drug price quoted on PharmacyChecker match the price on the pharmacy website?
PharmacyChecker.com provides prescription drug price comparisons among international online pharmacies that we have verified as meeting our pharmacy practice standards. While we strive to provide accurate pricing, occasionally the price for a specific medication listed on PharmacyChecker does not match the price listed on the online pharmacy website.
The pharmacies that list drug prices on our website are responsible for providing us with updated listings. In some instances, the listings may not be updated due to technical error or because prices have changed since the list was generated. When discrepancies are brought to our attention, we take action to fix them quickly.Updated November 26, 2019
