Online Pharmacy Customer’s Open Letter to PharmacyChecker.com


We recently we received an open letter from Mike M. from Syracuse, NY, explaining why he turns to international pharmacies for his medicine. One medicine he takes costs $1,200 for a five day supply in the U.S! In Canada it’s $140.

Check out Mike's letter on our blog, and if you want to share your experience with the high prices of medication please send us an email or post it to our Facebook page.

New Organization Misleads Americans About Internet Pharmacies


The stated goal of the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP) is to “promote and encourage safe online pharmacies through education, enforcement and information sharing.” However, it is sullied by its misinformation about non-US online pharmacies, which have helped Americans safely afford needed medication for over a decade.

CSIP relies on the verifications of LegitScript.com, a company that wrongly labels safe international online pharmacies as unapproved. Empirical research shows that PharmacyChecker.com’s verified international online pharmacies are as safe as domestic ones. By discouraging access to safe – and much lower cost – pharmacies, CSIP’s actions will result in fewer Americans taking their needed medicine.

The savings from international online pharmacies on popular medication are often thousands of dollars, and the prices are often 80% or more lower than those found in domestic pharmacies. For more details, see our most recent price chart above.
