Prescription Ordering

Should I be concerned about buying prescription medications online?

Rest assured that when you purchase from AmeriMedRx Online you are dealing with a U.S.-based online facilitator that contracts with state-licensed physicians and pharmacists in the U.S. We dispense only FDA-approved, brand-name medications, and our online pharmacies are secure. In fact, our online pharmacies originated in 1998 when U.S. physicians began working with rural clients by telephone and the Internet. Writing prescriptions based on a physician’s review and filling those prescriptions through an electronic/online format, has long been a legal way to dispense many types of medications for various types of conditions.

When you purchase online medications from companies that are not based in the U.S., through companies that sell “non-genuine” versions of FDA-approved, name-brand medications, there may be a risk involved. These medications are often described by foreign companies as the “generic” version of U.S. name-brand medications, but they are considered to be illegal in the U.S. and often contain different ingredients/dosages found in the FDA-approved, brand-name medications. This means “non-genuine” medications made outside the U.S. may be ineffective and/or harmful to your health.

Will my personal information, including medical history, be kept private?

Absolutely. Your personal information is protected by an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and the highest level of encryption available to us. The information is then entered into a database that only the physician reviewing your case can access. Basic information such as your name, address and phone number will be viewable by our customer service representatives if it becomes necessary to answer your questions. We do not sell, rent or otherwise share your personal information with third parties for any reason unless required to do so by law.

How does an online consultation work?

As a part of the growing trend of telemedicine, online consultations utilize the Internet to improve patient access to physician care. The patient does not receive a traditional physical exam by the physician, but rather they complete the online medical questionnaire and one of our contracted licensed physicians will review the results with you during a HIPPA compliant video and or audio consult where you will be notified if you qualify for a prescription. Upon approval, the doctor will submit the prescription to one of our VIPPS certified U.S. pharmacies for fulfillment and they ship your requested medication to you. Although online consultations will never take the place of traditional medicine, they do provide a means for patients to receive treatment for a limited number of conditions that, in certain circumstances, may not require an immediate physical exam.

If the prescription is approved, the physician will write it and send it to the pharmacy, where it will be filled by a state-licensed pharmacist and shipped to you via FedEx or the U.S. Postal Service. Your package will include a copy of your prescription, a receipt, as well as documentation of the usage, dose and precautionary information for your medication. You will also receive contact information for the pharmacy in the case you have any questions after you receive your medication.

How can I verify that the medication is authentic/brand-name?

You will find a lot number on the pill bottle or pill card (packaging). You may contact the manufacturer with this number to verify when and where the product was manufactured, and also to verify the expiration date, which is listed on all of our dispensed medication. Customers may also contact us at 1-800-990-9681 if they have questions for our physicians or pharmacists.

Be wary of companies not based in the U.S., as you may receive “non-genuine” pills that foreign company say are the “generic” version of FDA-approved, brand-name drugs. These foreign, “generic” versions of brand-name, FDA-approved drugs are actually illegal in the U.S. and contain unknown ingredients that may not only be ineffective but also hazardous to your health.

Shipping

What are your shipping policies?

Our customers receive their medications promptly because of our corporate standard: ship all orders within 24 hours of receipt. However, orders placed before 3 p.m. MST are generally processed and shipped the same day unless we require more information from the patient. This could include wrong address, missing apartment #, wrong postal codes, etc. Also, any additional communication between patient and doctor or pharmacist (regarding health and medical follow-up), or conditions beyond our control, could extend the time needed to process/ship an order. Same-day service is our goal; however, it is not a guarantee.

If you order online before 3 p.m. MST, and you want your order to arrive the next day, please call our customer service department immediately after you place your order online. We confirm all online orders via phone, and your direct call to us will help expedite the processing and shipment of your medication.

At the time of your order, you may select overnight, 2-day, or priority shipping (typically 3-5 days). Please note that express shipping is calculated from the time the order is picked up by the carrier – not from the time the order is placed with us. Please remember that carriers consider Sundays and holidays as non-business days, so they will not make pickups or deliveries on those days.
