Frequent questions about ordering from Maple Leaf Meds
Monday to Friday: 6:00am – 8:00pm PST
Saturday to Sunday: 7:00am – 5:00pm PST
We can ship medication to the United States and Puerto Rico.
No, we need a valid prescription from a physician who is licensed to practice and prescribe medicine in order for a pharmacist to dispense. You can purchase Over the Counter (OTC) products without a prescription. We adhere to all regulatory bodies in the jurisdictions that accept orders and dispense your medications.
Unfortunately, our contracted Canadian pharmacy cannot transfer prescriptions from other pharmacies located outside of Canada. To place an order for prescription drugs, we require a valid prescription from a licensed physician faxed or mailed to us. If you decide to order from one of our international fulfillment centers, the pharmacy may accept your US prescription.
This is one of the most asked customer questions. While some medication may have a different name or appearance from what is available at your local pharmacy, the active ingredients in generic drugs (the contents that make the drug work) are the same. Trade names for drugs are registered by manufacturers and even if produced by the same manufacturer, trade names often differ for marketing purposes. We only offer brand name and generic medications that undergo rigorous quality tests and pass exceptionally high manufacturing standards.
New brand-name drugs are developed under a patent, which gives a company the sole right to sell the drug during the patent period (usually around 20 years). During this time, a drug company charges more for a brand-name drug to recuperate the development costs such as research, marketing and promotion. When the patent expires, other manufacturers can begin to produce and sell generic versions of the brand-name drug. Different countries have different patent periods. For example, patent periods for Canadian medications are generally shorter than those in the US.
Since manufacturers of generic drugs don’t have the same research and development costs, they can afford to sell their product at substantial discounts. Also, with more products in the market, there is more competition, which keeps the prices down.
If the reactions are severe, please contact your local emergency service provider. Our Pharmacy Helpline would be happy to assist you with any medication-related issues, please phone our toll free number 1-855-218-5085.
The pharmacy can only supply as much medication as your physician prescribes for you, according to the directions, and up to a maximum of three months at a time. This is true whether your are ordering from our Canadian pharmacy or if you have ordered and shipped from our affiliated international pharmacies in other countries.
When your doctor is writing your prescription, ask for a 3 month supply with 3 refills, which would be valid for a year’s worth of medication.
No. We carry a much broader selection of prescription medications than those listed. If you don’t see the drug you are looking for please call our office at our toll-free number, 1-800-998-4016. We do not sell medications that are not suitable for distance based dispensing.
The forms help us understand your medical background and conditions in the interest of your safety. Similar to any other pharmacy, our pharmacists and physicians use the provided information to assess your prescription and potential drug interactions. If necessary, our Customer Care Specialists may phone or fax your physician for further information for clarification.
The market prices, manufacturer prices, and exchange rates are constantly in flux, which affects the prices of the drugs we offer.
