A generic medication is a medication which is manufactured by a company which was not the innovator. Due to expired patents on certain medications, other manufacturers are allowed to produce and sell the generic equivalent medication at a lower, more competitive price. A generic medication is bio-equivalent, meaning it contains the equivalent active ingredient, to the brand name medication. Due to strict regulations for the generic drug industry, these drugs must provide the same therapeutic effect as the brand name medication. However, there may be some variation to the size, shape and color of the medication.

Our medications that we dispense from our partnered dispensing pharmacies may look different as they are are coming from various locations globally. Generic equivalent medications may differ in size, shape, colour and additional fillers.

However, these medications contain the same active ingredient as the brand name.

Therefore, generic equivalent medications deliver the same therapeutic effect as the brand name medications. If you have any questions or concerns you may contact us at our toll free number located below to request to speak to a Pharmacist directly.

Due to the ever changing market our contracted pharmacies might not have all medications available for sale. If you do run across a medication you would like to order, please feel free to give us a call toll-free or initiate a chat with one of our customer care representatives. We would be more than happy to see if it is a medication that one of our contracted pharmacies can source for you!

Should your shipment not arrive within 10 business days from the date shipped, a member of our loyalty team will be in contact with you.


We do not accept returns on any medications. However, should there be a defect with the supply that was sent to you, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

We currently do not accept insurance as a form of payment. However, we are able to provide customers with medical expense reports to make insurance claims.

Protecting your confidentiality information is our foremost priority. Canada’s PIPED (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents) Act prohibits us from sharing our customer’s personal, medical or financial information to anyone (without your consent) other than the health professionals responsible for filling your prescriptions.
