Licensed pharmacies in Canada meet stringent standards for safe dispensing practices which require you to provide your original prescription even for pain medications. A valid prescription written by a licensed physician is required when ordering medications from a legitimate Canadian pharmacy online.

Under the laws of our dispensing pharmacies in most countries, this is completely legal; from a US perspective, the reality is that millions of Americans have purchased (and continue to purchase) medications from Canadian and other international sources without problems or interference by U.S. authorities. The official U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) position is that re-importing U.S. prescription drugs originally manufactured in the United States or importing medications made in other countries could violate US laws. In fact, however, the U.S. government has never been very vigorous about preventing individual U.S. residents from buying small amounts of prescription drugs for their own personal use, or that of a family member, from foreign sources.
