(1). Question: Can I get into trouble importing medications?
(1). Answer: *To our knowledge there has never been an instance where anyone attempting to import medicine for personal use in 90 days supply has ever had any legal problems. A visit to US Customs Website http://www.customs.ustreas.gov - See Traveler Information will confirm this. Customs reserves the right to refuse any shipment entry, but this does not mean that such attempted importation is a crime unless the drug in question is illegal to possess, i.e. Marijuana, LSD, Extacy etc.
When medications are obtained through the mail, Customs only has two options with regards to import of prescription meds coming from a legitimate pharmacist or physician, to refuse them entry or to pass them through. Since no less than 250,000 pieces of foreign mail, including flat envelopes resembling correspondence, regular mail, documents, small packages, etc. arrive at every USA port of entry each day for clearance, it is physically impossible for them to reject or even scrutinize any more than 10%. So 90% of the time meds pass uninspected, but legally. If a package is randomly looked at, if a customs clerk deems it inadmissible for import, the worst scenario is that the package is 'held' or what is usually called 'seized'. This seizure can be contested if the meds shipped are in a 90 day supply or less for personal medical use.
There are no legal repercussions for this type of import. It is not unlawful, and a 'seizure' is less ominous than a parking ticket. You have to 'pay' a parking ticket. A 'seizure' simply means 'Shipment refused entry'.
(2). Question: I want to order your Guide, but I am not convinced. What more can you tell me about all this?
(2). Answer: The reason we have put so much information on this Website, is to try to reassure our customers that we are legitimate and honest and are telling you all we can tell you in a public forum. We are available to talk to you.. Just call us at: 1-302 996 0635 Company Code # 9. But remember, there are hundreds and hundreds of individuals like yourself interested in this information and if each called for reassurance, we wouldn't be able to do anything other than answer the phone all day...In addition discussing individuals physical maladies and emotional problems due to a lack of facility in the USA is something we are more than well aware of, but not always eager to talk about as we also must run a business. Similarly, talking about specific drugs (medications) with a high incidence of abuse is certainly not what we would care to discuss with you on the phone.. Discretion is necessary in this business!
(3). Question: I have heard rumors that some foreign pharmacies sell counterfeit meds. How do I know the meds I receive are real and not just fakes?
(3). Answer: Our customers have a unique advantage in that they will never get 'cheated' in any way, shape or form by any pharmacists we list. Reason being, we send thousands and thousands of customers to our recommended pharmacies and the revenue they enjoy from this commerce is tremendous. The success of their business is dependent on our good will. If we eliminate them from our lists, their ongoing enterprise is more or less finished. This insures our subscribers the best service, and indeed these listed pharmacies are wary of creating any bad reputation or misunderstandings.
Additionally, we only list pharmacies we believe to be reputable, and monitor our lists continually. Also, the controls and guidelines governing the manufacture of pharmaceuticals in foreign countries are very high. Basically the same standard manufactures meet in the USA. The rumor that counterfeits are manufactured abroad is baseless.
(4). Question: What is the difference between your offer and others on the Internet?
(4). Answer: It has become quite a problem of late, that many con-artists have attempted to pretend they are savvy to this foreign pharmacy facility and lure customers to buy their worthless materials. Most copy our Website presentation, attempt to duplicate our offers, and elaborately go to great lengths to rip-off unsuspecting purchasers. When our enterprise first began this venture, there was no one else making such information available. Usually at pretender websites, remarkably, the alleged offered information very closely resembles ours.
PLEASE beware of frauds and cheaters who are competing for your patronage. And thank you for visiting this Website.
We get no payment from the foreign pharmacies listed by us, but do insist that they deal fairly and honestly with our clientele.
5). Question: How long do I have to wait before my orders arrive? How long does it take to get the books and then the meds?
(5). Answer: Once we receive payment for the materials you request from us, we process the order and ship them immediately. Please allow up to 24 hours from the time you submit that order to us until merchandise gets shipped. Since all shipping is done by First Class Mail, packages arrive in 2-3 days from the time they are sent depending on where you live. International orders are shipped First Class Airmail.
As far as actually receiving any medications you order from our recommended pharmacies. There are many of our suppliers who effectively ship meds via Express. Such turn around is relatively fast. Under ordinary circumstances allowing three weeks for meds to arrive is standard. Since meds may be ordered in 90 day supply, only the first order may require patience, as subsequent orders can be made in a timely fashion, so they arrive before your supplies are exhausted.
(6). Question: How do I know that the drug I need is available from your Pharmacy List.
(6). Answer: Let me begin by acknowledging that we don't know whether or not each and every drug desired by our customers is available from the recommended pharmacies on our lists. Foreign pharmacists usually put the most popular meds on their price list and it is necessary to email them and inquire about price and availability with regards other meds not listed. Availability of medicines for mail-order from foreign pharmacies tends to be very similar to what is available in the USA. And generally if a med is on the market it is available in foreign markets. Of course, at the same time sometimes meds still not available in the USA are already available abroad. As was the case with a new popular diet med just released called Xenical. You will need to purchase our materials to learn how to order meds from abroad without a prescription, for less.
(7). Is ordering
from an online pharmacy a good idea?
(7). Answer: We cannot encourage you to search for actual on-line pharmacies. There are only two or three, really, and even then there is a big problem in dealing with them. Their shipments never arrive! The pharmacies we recommend for mail-order of prescription meds generally do not have high profile websites. If they do, what usually happens is that they become 'high profile' targets at Customs. The reason of course being, that the FDA and Customs considers any pharmacy outside of the USA maintaining a website which can be viewed in the USA, to be advertising to USA citizens. They deem this illegal and in defiance of USA import policy.
Consequently, all shipments from these 'on-line' pill mills usually get rejected (seized) at Customs. The pharmacies that we 'recommend', do have email and can be reached via your computer for prices, availability and ordering info.. Our pharmacists are very discreet.
(8). Question: DIET MEDS? Can you tell me if they are available?
(8). Answer: Every type of diet medications is available from foreign pharmacy suppliers. Including Diet pills restricted for sale here in the USA, i.e. Fenflouramine, Dexfenflouramine, Phentermine, etc. Also Meridia, Xenical (Fat burning new med only recently approved in USA) And even experimental meds not yet approved by the FDA but legal for import in 90 day supply.
(9). Question: Do these pharmacies and recommended techniques for ordering prescription medicines, work just as well for Canadians?
(9). Answer: They certainly do! Canada recently redefined its import policies which mirrors USA policy, but with even more liberal interpretation. So.. ordering 90 days' supply of meds for personal medical use is allowed. Utilizing techniques we prescribe for protecting shipments always helps. And foreign pharmacies that we recommend ship all over the world, very discreetly and effectively.
(10). Question: Will I be able to find out where to buy my medication at the lowest price by using your Guide?
(10). Answer: Yes! At least 40% cheaper than what US citizens are accustomed to paying. We recommend pharmacies whose track record, i.e.. quality, customer service, customer satisfaction, and reputation are perfect. The prices are drastically less than here in the USA, and no prescriptions are required.
(11). Question: Do I need to know the foreign name of a med to order from any of your recommended pharmacies?
(11). Answer: No. Just the US name or generic name. You can usually get the name and strength right off your prescription bottle. Our guide will give you links to some of the best pharmaceutical drug sites or you can purchase a PDR (Physicians Desk Reference) from any bookstore for about $10. This book lists thousands of meds and offers all kinds of info about meds, i.e. side effects, interactions, dosages, usage, warnings, etc.
(12). Question: How do I order from the pharmacies?
(12). Answer: Here are Step by Step Ordering Instructions:
A:) Pick a pharmacy from our pharmacy list.
B:) Email them for their current price and availability list. If you can't find what you need email them and request what you need. Usually they will respond quickly if they want your business.
C:) Read their ordering instructions and print them out so when you place your order you can read it.
D:) Decide what you want, the quantity you want and how you are going to pay for it.
E:) Place your order following their printed instructions.
F:) Be Patient. I know some of you are in desperate need of the medication but this is not a quick process. Be prepared to wait from 2 weeks to 3 weeks to receive your order.
G:) When you receive your order it will arrive in different forms. Usually a plain white or brown envelope with the contents of your order in a zip lock plastic bag. Whenever possible they try to use the factory sealed punch through Blister Cards, It doesn't arrive in a cardboard box in prescription bottles like you get at your corner drugstore.
(13). Question: Can I get my prescription filled without ever leaving the United States from ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD?
(13). Answer: Certainly, that's the main purpose of our Guide. It includes all the information you need to order drugs at great savings without leaving your home. Telephone numbers, and email take the entire hassle out of ordering for all our listed pharmacies. Exact mailing addresses in the correct format with fax numbers and even e-mail addresses makes everything easy.
(14). Question: Can prescriptions be filled through a respectable pharmacy at a cheaper rate than the USA?
(14). Answer: Yes they can and savings will vary but at least 40%. Most antibiotics are 50% less. Many stomach medicines cost about one third as much. It is quite common to save $1,000 for a six-month supply of prescription medicines.
(15). Question: I can only speak English, does that matter and how about currency?
(15). Answer: All of the pharmacies in our guide have some English speaking employees. Most people working for a Mexican border pharmacy speak English. American dollars are very acceptable and there is no need to change your money to Mexican Pesos in Mexican cities. All of our listed pharmacies have their pricelists in American dollars for your convenience.
(16). Question: Are the drugs the same in Mexico, Europe and Canada?
(16). Answer: Yes and no, other countries do carry the same medicines that we have available in the US, these drugs are identical in name and dosage and are produced by the same big name pharmaceutical manufacturers in America or other parts of the world and are shipped worldwide. They also carry medicines made in their own country, and other countries. The pharmacies in our guide all supply and sell FDA approved medicines, and the ones that are not, (usually generics) are clearly marked.
(17). Question: Is it legal to import prescription medicines into the US?
(17). Answer: Yes it's legal and you don't need prescriptions for almost all medicines. The most important thing to remember is that you can only order up to a 3 month supply ( 6 month for seniors ) in any one order, and you can only order for yourself. Please be sure to follow the instructions and recommendations in our guide.
(18). Question: Is it safe?
(18). Answer: Yes! Do you really believe that the people in any country would tolerate unsafe or dangerous pharmaceuticals, they have families that depend on their medication same as you do. They may not have a FDA, but each country does have some bureaucracy with identical duties as our FDA.
(19). Question: How about Homeopathic medicines or even Veterinary products?
(19). Answer: Yes they have a huge variety and assortment, much more than available in the US, at big savings.
