FDA Validates the Safety of Medications from Canada

Jason’s Canada Drugstore applauds the FDA’s authorization of Florida’s drug importation program from Canada as this validates the safety and authenticity of Canada’s drug supply in the eyes of the FDA and Florida.

The FDA has historically been cautious about drug importation. The authorization of Florida’s plan is the first step on this pathway of importation to Florida. This implies that the FDA believes Canada’s drug supply would meet the safety and quality standards that they would implement for Florida. These safety and quality standards would ensure that drugs imported from Canada are safe.

The FDA approval of this Florida initiative confirms what millions of Americans have already known: importing medications from Canada is safe and provides a large amount of savings when comparing prices to the same medications in the United States.

Our US patients have been importing medications from Canada for years due to the potential savings. Medications purchased from Canada can offer savings of up to 80% off the same medication sold in the United States. Canadian online pharmacies have been exporting medications to US customers for over 20 years now. The FDA allows US patients to personally import a 90 day supply of prescription medication from Canada and other foreign countries.

Medications ordered from a licensed Canadian online pharmacy are safe for personal use. Mass importation of medications into Florida may save money for the state but the regulatory oversight requirements for wholesaling medications has yet to be developed. The regulations, requirements, and safety measures will need to be developed and implemented. This process will have a cost.

Canadian wholesale exportation to the US will also be fraught with restrictions, Health Canada federal approval, and various other legal challenges that will need to be overcome before the importation of medications will be able to start.

Thankfully, through personal importation and Canadian online pharmacies, US citizens already have access to safe and affordable medications from Canada. By ordering direct form a Canadian pharmacy, patients can avoid the federal bureaucracy and various middlemen costs. Mail order pharmacies in Canada are already delivering savings that Americans need – particularly those on fixed or lower incomes.
