Domain Name Information
We are able to see from the domain records that this pharmacy address was created in 1998.
A long registration such as this, suggests that this is more likely to be a safe and legit drugstore business. If this wasn’t the case they would very likely have closed down long ago.
The information found in the records also reveals that the owner is based in Arizona, USA. It is common to find that a privacy service has been used with less reliable drugstores, so it is good to see that this isn’t the case with this site.
They provide an address for where they operate throughout the pharmacy site. This is a good indication of a legit drugstore. The location is in Arizona which matches with the information found in the domain name records.
When checking this address we find that this is the location of another online pharmacy – AccessRx. However, AccessRx.com has now closed down and it sends you to eDrugstore instead. They provide a message for previous customers of the now-closed pharmacy.
The business behind this store also owned another site as well – ViaMedic – which has also closed, redirecting customers to this site. The business name is a little difficult to find on the site, but it is operated by Secure Medical Inc. which has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
They say that operate with US-licensed pharmacies to supply their customers. While they do say that these pharmacies are approved by the NABP’s VIPPS program, as we would expect for a US drugstore, they don’t provide information which allows us to validate this.
They also have a seal on their store from LegitScript. Checking this shows that they are certified by LegitScript as part of their merchant program. This certification means that their VIPPS approval is also genuine since it would have to be validated by LegitScript.
This pharmacy business provides access to a doctor consultation if you don’t already have a prescription. This takes the form of an online questionnaire which is then reviewed by US doctors, if you are approved they will create a new prescription for you and your order will be processed.

- Men’s health
The pills they sell are sourced from US manufacturers and wholesalers. The meds are dispatched from their pharmacy based somewhere in the US, though they don’t provide exact information on this for some reason.

This comment is typical of those found on this page, but it does highlight one issue with the pharmacy, pricing. While most people seem to be very happy with the service and delivery they experienced with the store, some customers indicate that their prices could be more competitive.
This pharmacy has been operating for a long time, they have correct regulation and good customer feedback. They also seem to have a large number of customers currently ordering from them. There are a few areas where we would like to see some improvements, though, including their pricing and transparency.
