Canada Pharmacy Safe Prescription Dispensing Process!
Rx Drugs Canada Pharmacy ensures that before any prescription drug is processed and fulfilled by any of our international dispensing pharmacies they must take all the steps necessary to translate a medication order (prescription) into an individualized medication the supply that is both safe and appropriate.
Our partnered do not offer medications internationally or to any country valid prescription and prohibit the sale of any controlled drugs internationally and to the United States.
Our online international contracted pharmacy will only dispense medications to a person who has a valid prescription issued for a legitimate medical purpose based upon a medical relationship with a prescribing practitioner.
Below is a brief description of the typical steps the dispensing pharmacy may take to process your order:
Step 1: The dispensing pharmacist will review your patient information. This allows the pharmacist to fill your prescription. The dispensing pharmacy will check your identifier (birthday or home address). This allows for their standard compliance procedures to process your medication within the dispensing pharmacy’s prescription records. The pharmacist will check your health profile to determine if you have had this medication before, and what it is being used to treat. This allows the pharmacist to personalize your medication when the medication is ready to be shipped.
Step 2: A member of the dispensing pharmacy team will enter the prescription information in your profile, and check the: doctor’s information, medication, dosage, and any pertinent indications from the prescriber. The pharmacist will check will check for possible interactions or other potential issues through their local Pharmacy State Council Drug Information Database.
Step 3: The medication will be scanned and packaged with the Lot and Expiry date of the medication. The medication will then counted for the quantity, labelled and handed off to the pharmacist to be checked and verified.
Step 4: The pharmacist will perform a standard clinical check of your medication, assess for drug interactions, allergies, and double check your health profile by reviewing any previous medications for the same use to ensure it is the most appropriate drug, dosage and duration for your condition. A pharmacist or pharmacy technician will perform a technical check on the accuracy of the information entered into the Pharmacy State Council Drug Information Database, the label and the contents of the vial or package. They will then print off any required counselling documents and provide patients with any additional information on the medication you have been prescribed.
Step 5: The medication will be properly packaged and be ready to be shipped. If you are ordering it is a refill, this may include an assessment regarding how well the medication is working for you, and whether you are experiencing any side effects.
