Verify Your Online Pharmacy Before You Buy

According to the FDA, 97% of online pharmacies are illegitimate and unsafe. Even experts have difficulty identifying a fake online pharmacy from its website alone. What looks like a discount online pharmacy from Canada or the U.S. could be a rogue website from anywhere in the world. Highly sophisticated criminal enterprises are utilizing malware, engaging in identity theft, and selling medicine that does not work, or worse, is dangerous to your health. 

We at CSIP have partnered with North Carolina and a growing number of state governments and health service organizations to provide a website dedicated to helping you determine if your online pharmacy is certified and from a safe source: VerifyBeforeYouBuy.org. We also provide access to trusted partner resources to help consumers save on prescriptions medications purchased from local pharmacies.
