Websites Providing Accurate Info on Safe Online Pharmacies

by Libby Baney, Medications Expert
August 25, 2016

Question: Which websites provide accurate information on identifying safe and legal online pharmacies?

Answer: Nearly 97% of all websites selling medicines online do not comply with U.S. laws and regulations. To ensure that the websites you are using to purchase medications are legitimate, please visit any of the following websites to verify your online pharmacy: www.XTheRisk.pharmacy or www.LegitScript.com. Consumers can also ‘look to the right of the dot’ for websites that end in .pharmacy. For more information on websites that use the .pharmacy domain, please visit http://www.safe.pharmacy/buying-safely. For consumers in Europe, look for the Common Logo and ensure the logo links to the Member State regulatory authority’s website.
