Is it safe to use a Canadian drug company that offers cheaper prescription fills? Check with CIPA.com.
The letters stand for “Canadian International Pharmacy Association” and it is run by the Canadian government. CIPA has a list of approved online pharmacies where it is safe to buy prescription drugs. (We liked the name “cheapodrugs.com.”) You must have a doctor’s prescription to make that purchase. Keep in mind, however, that a drug isn’t necessarily cheaper than the generic version at your local pharmacy. It pays to check there first.
