10 Benefits of Using an Online Canada Pharmacy
Category: Healthy Living
A lot of things have changed over the past few years, and one of them is the way that patients seek healthcare. Telehealth options, in particular, have exploded across the world. At high rates, patients have received consultations and other routine services over the phone or the internet, and many are hoping to keep it that way.
What if we told you that there was another service that you could fulfill from the comfort of your own home? Online pharmacies now make it possible to order and receive prescription medications with ease.
Canadian online pharmacies, in particular, have proven useful for patients worldwide, including in the United States. Why are they so popular?
Read on as we discuss the ten unbeatable benefits of using a Canada online pharmacy.
Not everyone who needs regular access to healthcare options also has regular access to transportation. Many people live in places with limited healthcare services, to begin with. What do you do if you can't get to a pharmacy to pick up a prescription or your local pharmacy doesn't have access to the medications you need?
Online pharmacies are making basic healthcare more accessible to patients around the world. We are always working hard to ensure that our website is high-speed and user-friendly from the moment you search for your prescription to the moment you submit your order. Our priority is to ensure that more patients have ready access to the life-improving and life-saving medications they need.
If you're living in the United States, you've probably noticed that the cost of medication is always on the rise. The US government does not currently regulate the prices set by pharmaceutical companies, allowing them to profit off of the people who need their medications. What US residents may not realize is that the cost of medication isn't nearly as high in most other countries, including Canada.
In other words, buying your medication from a Canadian pharmacy online is going to save you money. Believe it or not, we save you money in more ways than one. Not only do medications cost less here, but Canadian online pharmacies provide generic options with all of the same active ingredients as name-brand medications but sold at a fraction of the price.
3. Socially Distanced Healthcare
While we've made strides in curbing the spread of COVID-19 by offering vaccines and educating the public on protocols like masking and hand washing, many people are still taking the extra precaution of social distancing. This can be especially important for vulnerable populations such as immunocompromised or elderly individuals, who are also likely to need at least one medication. It's understandable that you may not want to go into a brick-and-mortar pharmacy to pick up your medication.
Online pharmacies reduce the need to fulfill healthcare needs in person. Some drugs, such as prescription opioids, are not available online and should not be purchased online. However, hundreds of prescription medications are available online, cutting down the need for in-person prescription fulfillment.
Your medical records, including prescriptions, contain private, sensitive information. Online pharmacies understand that, which is why website security is of the utmost importance to us.
With protections in place like the Norton Shopping Guarantee and SSL Security, we ensure that all of your information is encrypted, from the prescriptions you order to your credit card number to your mailing address. With us, your private information remains private.
5. High Authentication Standards
Safe online Canadian pharmacies undergo the same rigorous authentication processes as brick-and-mortar pharmacies. That means that when you place an order for your medication, you know that you're receiving exactly what you ordered.
Just as importantly, these authentication standards go both ways. One simple way to spot a questionable or illegal online pharmacy is to reach the order placement page without having to provide a prescription from a medical doctor. All legal and safe online pharmacies do require proof of prescription to fulfill orders for prescription drugs.
Why is this important? Consumer safety is key when ordering prescriptions online. Any online pharmacy that is willing to mail out prescription drugs to individuals who do not have a prescription from a doctor is operating outside of both safety regulations and ethical obligations.
6. Easy Access to Information
When you are taking a new prescription, you may have questions about how the prescription works or how best to take it. You may also want to know important information about potential side effects so that you can spot warning signs and report back to your doctor. Without talking to a pharmacist face-to-face, will you still have access to that information?
The answer is yes. No matter what prescription you need, you can find information about it on the website used by your online pharmacy. Information access is crucial to the empowerment of our patients, which is why we make it easy to get the answers you're looking for.
7. Easy Access to Support
What if you want to talk to someone about your prescription and ask questions, rather than reading up? What if you have questions about an order you've placed or how to provide pertinent medical history? In addition to useful, user-friendly websites, online pharmacies provide lines of support every day of the week.
At PricePro Pharmacy, we offer support seven days a week. If you call or write to us after working hours, we will always try to get in touch within the next 24 hours. You can talk to one of our certified pharmacists or a member of our support team, depending on the nature of your question, and we'll do everything we can to ensure that all of your questions are answered.
8. Easy Prescription Fulfillment and Refills
Why does 80% of the population enjoy online shopping? It doesn't just open doors to more products than you might find in your town or city. It also comes with unbeatable convenience and the same can be said of online pharmacies.
Once you're ready to start ordering your prescriptions online, you can take a look at our full walk-through. For now, we'll give you the highlights.
To get started, you'll make a password-protected account and submit your prescriptions. From there, you can either order your prescriptions online or over the phone. We'll hang on to your card information and send you reminders about any upcoming refills so that when you return, everything is in order for more fast and easy fulfillment.
9. Affordable Shipping
If you're living in the United States, you might be wondering how much it costs to order medication from another country. Do we charge a fortune to ship medications to our American patients? Absolutely not.
While we do offer tiered shipping options, allowing you to pay a little more to get your prescription faster, we work hard to keep our shipping costs down. In fact, we're able to keep these additional costs low because the cost of operations for an online pharmacy is much lower than a brick-and-mortar chain. No matter how many prescriptions you order at a time, shipping will cost as little as $9.95.
Verifiability isn't just a benefit of online pharmacies. It's a crucial step to take before you place your order.
What do we mean by verifiability? As we've mentioned already, there are untrustworthy operations disguised as Canadian online pharmacies. Before you place you provide private information and order medications, make sure that you are working with a verified pharmacy.
How can you do that? Look for certifications from pharmacy review boards like Pharmacy Checker. These review boards perform all of the background checks necessary to ensure that your online pharmacy is run by licensed pharmacists who are selling legal, authenticated drugs.
Additionally, make sure that your online pharmacy is completing the steps we've discussed today, such as encrypting your information and asking for a prescription. Any pharmacy that operates outside of these standards is not safe to use. They may be selling your data and selling medications that are mislabeled or dangerous.
