A few months ago Mr. Thompson, my hysterical neighbor from a few doors away, came ambling over to my patio door with a few pieces of paper in hand. He wanted to know about online pharmacies and if he could really save money ordering from them. This led to him doing a lot of research on his own as well as coming by every day to ask me what I thought. Since I have a modest amount of experience ordering pharmaceuticals and prescriptions online, I wanted to make sure that he didnt get ripped off in the process. Being over the age of 80 you might think that Mr. T, as I affectionately call him, wouldnt really be looking for medications to
how to put it delicately .. stimulate his sexual functions. He was after Viagra and Cialis and had a prescription for both of them. When I asked him how he managed to get a script for both he cracked a smile and shook his finger in my face Dont worry about that, just find me a cheap price. Lets just say Mr. T is still pretty popular with the ladies and its not a rarity to see a different car in his driveway at least once a week. Cross Border Pharmacy doesnt stock either of these medications but when I was browsing the site I did come across some of my prescriptions and decided to give them a try to see if they were as easy to use and on the up and up as they claim to be.
Since this site works from your new or existing American prescription, there are no consultation fees to deal with. Some overseas pharmacies are charging upwards of $50.00 to evaluate your case, do an on line interview or establish that there is a need for the medication your request. In most cases these sites are legitimate but in some they are nothing more than scams that are looking to sucker those who are looking to save a few dollars. The only fee that the site charges is shipping and handling, and even that is a flat fee of $9.95 per order, not prescription. To me that is a great selling point for people who have multiple prescription or several family members who are on medications. Since you getting these from a foreign pharmacy you pay no sales tax, another savings that you stand to make when ordering from this site. If you are wondering how you can get prices as much as 80% less than American pharmacies, its due to the fact that medicine prices are regulated in Canada simply put they cant price gouge their residents.
What You Can Order
The site carries a wide variety of medications, some of the more popular ones include: Toradol, Buspar, Allegra, Nizoral, Stieva, Celebrex, Lithium and Zoloft. These are just a few of the thousand or so items that you can order through the site [with a valid United States prescription] and save up to 80% on. If you want to check the prices they are listed at the site, just click on the drug name and it will take you to the corresponding page where you can check the name brand price as well as the generic if one is available.
What You Cant Order
Like I already mentioned, the site doesnt sell Viagra or Cialis, two of the most popular drugs purchased over the internet these days. The do not stock or sell and narcotics or controlled substances [codeine, Valium, Percocet, Ritalin etc] and these items are clearly listed as no-nos at the site by the big red X next to their listing. In some cases they may not stock an item and in others they may be prohibited from selling the item or shipping it out of the country. This list is constantly changing so make sure you check it from time to time to see if the medication you are looking for has been added or removed from the list of goods.
In order to place an order with this site you will need a prescription from a certified United States doctor. Please dont waste your time trying to order items without a prescription because they do call to verify your information and in some cases if you try to pull a fast one with them, they will report you. You should check the site to make sure that they stock and carry your prescription and if you have any trouble finding a specific item, you can call their toll free customer service number,  626-0696, for more help. Since your order will be crossing an international border, it is subject to inspection on both sides, something that can hold up your order and extend delivery time. If you are going to place a prescription with this site, make sure that you have at least a thirty day supply of you medication in case the delivery time is longer than expected or quoted at the time of your order.
All medications sold at the site are under the scrutiny of the Canadian medical council [Health Canada], sort of like their version of the FDA. There will be some difference in color or packaging on some drugs but they will have the same effect on you when ingested. If you are hesitant about ordering or have any questions, the customer service department can answer all your questions with a single phone call. All prescriptions are dispensed by licensed Canadian pharmacists and pass through a series of quality control check points before your order is shipped out. In addition to all this, if you are a new customer you may receive a phone call from a customer service representative to double check your order, go over refill steps and other important things that pertain to your order. To me this shows the level of dedication they have to making sure that your order is fulfilled with speed as well as accuracy.
Items that I have ordered were received in about three weeks from the time that they were approved by a pharmacist. Some of them arrived unopened and other arrived with a stamp or two from United States Customs on the package. Ive never had any trouble with items being seized or held for more than a few days so I cant really complain about the hold up. My average saving on prescriptions is about 46% over what I would pay at an American pharmacy and so far Ive not noticed any difference in the medication strength, effect or potency. When I received one of my prescriptions from CrossBorderPharmacy.com and saw that the color of the pills were different I did call them before I started taking them and I was assured by a pharmacist that the items I received are the exact same as the American version, with the color being the only difference.
Things To Know
= You can only receive a three month supply of a medication, regardless of what it is. If you are written a prescription for a larger supply, you will be given the option to have the prescription on file with them and automatically have the remainder sent to you when the three month time frame has expired. If you have any questions, call the toll free customer service line for more help.
= The site also offers prescription medications from the United Kingdom / British Dispensary. While you might not save as much money electing to receive medications from British pharmacies, it is a great option when you need your meds fast or they are sold out at Canadian pharmacies. These too have to pass through United States Customs so you may have to wait a few days longer for it to be inspected, processed and approved for delivery.
= You can earn free shipping credits by referring family and friends to the site. Once the place an order and it is delivered, you will receive a credit on your next order. This is a great way to save even more money as well as spreading the word about ordering medications from Canada. If you refer more than one person, you can apply those credits to your next order.

The Bottom Line
If you are looking to save some money ordering your medications from a foreign pharmacy, this is a great site to check out. They offer you competitive pricing, fast shipping, an easy to navigate website, toll free customer service and charge no consultation fee for their services. With the skyrocketing prices of medications within the United States and the option to order medications abroad, more and more people are turning to online pharmacies. This is an open invitation for people to get scammed or be sent items of inferior quality so it pays to do some research and check out their credentials. Prescriptions for CrossBorderPharmacy.com are filled by Total Care Pharmacy, a licensed and approved facility as well as a member of the Certified Canadian International Pharmacy program.
