TOP MEDICATION QUESTIONS

1. Are prescriptions needed to order medication?
We care about your health and you need to realize that consuming prescription medications without a prescription is risky. We will never compromise on our client's health so, yes, a prescription is required AFTER YOU ORDER your medication. But we have good news. Once you place your order we will work with you, your pharmacy, or your health care practitioner to obtain a copy of your prescription for our file. IN SHORT: PLACE YOUR ORDER ONLINE NOW AND WE WILL OBTAIN THE PRESCRIPTION PRIOR TO DISPENSING.

2. How do I send my Prescription (Rx) Evidence to you?
For years, our technicians have worked hard to make it easy to get your prescription evidence to us.

Visit the following link to learn how it's easy to get your Prescription to us.

3. Are you a pharmacy?
Buckaday pharmacy is a prescription arranging service. We arrange products on your behalf from the best pharmacies around the world. Currently we have an active relationship with a pharmacy based out of Mumbai, India that fills prescriptions for our customers. Very soon we will be launching a service where we can offer you high quality brand name products from Turkey.

For providing this prescription arranging service we charge a small service fee of a maximum of 40 cents per day of medication ordered. As a result the maximum you will ever pay for a product at Buckaday pharmacy is the retail price of the product in the country of dispensing plus 40 cents per day. The only way to get medications cheaper would be to fly to India or Turkey and buy them.

4. Are the pharmacies that you arrange products from licensed?
Yes we only arrange products from pharmacies that are licensed in that jurisdiction. Not only this, we also look for accreditations. Our pharmacy in India is licensed by Indian FDA to sell and export pharmaceuticals. In addition our pharmacy is the only pharmacy in the industry that also has an ISO 9002 certification. To learn more about ISO please visit www.iso.org.

5. How much medication can I import?
Customers normally order a 3-month supply of their medication. If you are ordering a refill you have the choice to order more so that you pay for the same shipping charge for more medications. However you can't order more than the number of refills on your prescription.

6. Can medication you send me be returned?
Normally you can't return medications. However, Buckaday Pharmacy offers a 100% no questions asked money back guarantee. If for any reason you are unhappy with the product or service simply call us and talk to our Customer Care Executive who will be happy to refund you the money and give you information about shipping the return product.

7. Do you guys have a licensed pharmacist to counsel me?
Yes, and we advise that if you are confused or need any counseling you must talk to our north American licensed pharmacist.

8. How is it your medication prices are so much lower than my local drugstore?
That is the question more than 50 million people in the US are asking. As USA is a free market economy companies can charge any amount of money for the product that they want to. Making matters worse is the patent rule where only the company with the patent can sell the product and what we have is a situation where big pharma has become a government approved monopoly. They can charge how much ever they can get away with.

The situation is a bit different internationally. In countries like India, the government controls the price of products, as they want to ensure that more than 1 billion people living there have affordable access to high quality products. As a result pharmaceutical companies selling in India have to sell at a government mandated affordable price.

9. What is so unique about Buckaday Pharmacy?
Buck a day pharmacy believes everyone should have and millions would benefit from access to safe, effective, and affordable medications. That is why everything we do is designed to make ordering and receiving your medications at fair prices from an overseas pharmacy darn right simple and risk free. We do this by leveraging the marketing and information power of the Internet to attract then educate consumers on manufacture price disparities, expose unethical marketing practices, price gouging and explain why you should choose an ISO CERTIFIED PHARMACY with licensed pharmacists like ours, with transparent marketing pricing, and clear images of the products you're buying to fill your next brand or generic medication order. So go ahead and checkout how little our clients, like you, pay for authentic medicines online and start enjoying the savings.

Now you can buy your medicines at the same price as someone in Europe, Canada, or India might, plus a small order-processing fee.

10. How much more am I paying as compared to a local pharmacy for my Meds?
Glad you asked. Unlike many of our competitors we do not try and hide what a local person in India may pay for their medications. Instead, we believe in being transparent, because it is stamped on the manufactures packaging in India anyhow. Then we value add with our service and standards to make sure you get a north American buying experience, with north American customer service and north American pharmacists counseling, who accurately arrange the processing of your order via our ISO CERTIFIED MAIL ORDER PHARMACY seamlessly to your door. Our processes are consistently being refined to set the industry service standard so that your experience is as main-stream as going online these days to google something. Although the process, I can assure you, is much more complex than a local order, due to checks & balances for your wellbeing. We literally take care of all the details for you to ensure your overseas pharmacy mail order experience is safe, accurate, and affordable for a maximum order coordination up charge of no more than 40 cents per day above what an Indian living in India pays.

11. Will my prescription be filled with a generic version of my medicine?
At Buckaday Pharmacy we clearly show you the product you are choosing to buy, which could be a brand name or a generic version of the same medicine guaranteed by the government to contain the same active ingredient as the US brand you may know. In any case you will see images on our site of the exact product we will be shipping to you. Regrettably we cannot say the same for all online marketers who often show one image of a product and ship another brand / generic. Keep in mind though one of our goals is to ensure you never pay for more than $1 a day for your medication. To enable consumers to achieve this goal we do strongly recommend that you buy generic version of the medication. It is the same molecule as the brand only a lot cheaper. If you absolutely positively must buy a brand and are ready to pay a bit more money then you can also order a brand version, if its available. In case of any questions about what you are buying or if a generic is right for you please feel free to call and talk to our Client Care Specialists.

12. Is it better for my health to buy brand name medication or a generics?
Any active pharmaceutical ingredient must bear a generic name. This is also the molecular name. All applications to FDA are made under the generic name. Brand name is the name given to it by the pharmaceutical company for marketing purposes. When you buy generic you are buying the same thing as the brand; in many cases even made at the same manufacturing facility; only you are not paying for the huge marketing expenses and so buying it cheaper than the branded version.

25. Am I breaking laws by ordering medication online?
The importation law states that you can import medications for personal use for a maximum of 90 days use. The FDA obviously frowns on this as do the big pharmaceutical companies as now you, as a consumer, are able to finally afford your medication. Having said this the FDA has been asked to look the other way as there are literally millions of Americans who cannot afford their medication today and if all drug importation were to stop, the US would be in the midst of a health crisis. Historically we have shipped more than 500,000 parcels to other pharmacies customers and we have had less than 0.2% parcels that have been stopped by FDA.
