Online prescription medication purchasing is fraught with safety concerns. These include legality, privacy, security, and the protection of your personal data.
While online pharmacies offer convenience and some other benefits, such as privacy and lower prices than traditional brick-and-mortar pharmacies, there are many dangers associated with buying prescription medications online. There are many companies in Canada, that provide drug licensing services.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in order to ensure that prescription medication safety, requires that all medications undergo safe clinical trials and that the benefits of a drug outweigh any risks before they are approved for sale and marketing in Canada.
This poses a risk for the health of those who purchase from them. Some pharmacies in the United States may import and distribute drugs not approved by the FDA. It is therefore important that you only choose an online pharmacy that dispenses FDA-approved prescription medications.
Rogue pharmacies are known for being difficult to reach online. It is therefore important to have up-to-date information, including a telephone number and a physical address. You can then try to get a Better Business Bureau Report.
You can also do an advanced Dun & Bradstreet search to confirm that a better business bureau report is available. Do not do business with businesses that provide only an e-mail address for contact.
Not only will it prevent you from getting credentials or information about your business, but the mere provision of an e-mail address could also be a sign of how good customer service you can expect. You should also obtain the license number of the pharmacy and any accreditation credentials.
