MedicationCa.com, supposedly the number 1 Canadian pharmacy according to its website, purportedly offers a safe environment for the sale of generic, brand, men and women’s health products. This also includes anonymity of product deliveries and very competitive prices. The online pharmacy claims it is a certified Canadian pharmacy and that its products are genuine and meet both pharmacy and government regulations. Interestingly, it also doesn’t require a prescription for the sale of pharmaceutical medications.

The pharmacy domain was registered on April 11th, 2018, and will expire on the same date in 2023. The domain was last updated on February 25th, 2021. While the information on the domain registration and expected date of expiration are available, information on the registrant isn’t. The only available information on the registrant is the country: Bayern, Germany.
The non-availability of registrant contact information to the public makes the online pharmacy a mystery; a strong indicator that the online pharmacy isn’t trustworthy.
The online pharmacy drugstore has no physical address in addition to the absence of information on the employer or any of its employees. The absence of information on the business further adds to the online pharmacy mystery. The online drugstore chooses to be anonymous for either of these two reasons: it is keeping something from the public, or the owner is operating illegally and doesn’t want to be caught.
The only contact information provided on the pharmacy website is a USA telephone number: +442035141638. However, this phone number isn’t a USA telephone number as claimed on the pharmacy website, but a UK telephone number. This seems very suspicious. Lastly, the supposedly leading Canadian pharmacy doesn’t have a Canadian telephone number. Who would have thought?
The online pharmacy claims on its website to have decades of expertise in the online pharmacy sector. However, its domain was recently registered in 2018. Its claim of decades of expertise might be difficult to ascertain or trust, but at least the domain information is. Irrespective of its track record, an online pharmacy with either decade of operation or four years should have regulatory approvals from any pharmacy or health body.
The online pharmacy claims it is a certified Canadian pharmacy, however, it didn’t provide or highlight its certification. We can say for sure that it isn’t recognized by the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA). Furthermore, it isn’t recognized by LegitScript, and it is yet to be reviewed by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). Its non-approval or non-recognition means it doesn’t meet the review criteria of these regulatory bodies, and shouldn’t be trusted.
Products and Pricing
The online pharmacy drugstore only offers two categories of medications:
- Men’s Health
- Women’s Health
Their products are also believed to be the cheapest in today’s pharmacy market.
There are logos of different payment methods on the pharmacy website, but the accepted payment options are only these credit cards:
- American Express
The checkout page has different phone numbers from those on its homepage. These telephone numbers are: +1 888 524 7141 and +44 808 189 1420. These phone numbers are already flagged as suspicious, and their presence in this online pharmacy isn’t good.
The online pharmacy delivers locally within Canada and internationally. The shipping methods are:
- International Unregistered Mail
- Trackable Courier Service
The delivery service comes with optional delivery insurance of CAD 7.68
- International Unregistered Mail: This shipping method costs CAD 12.90 on all orders below CAD 260. However, for all orders above CAD 260, it is free. Delivery of products takes 14-21 days.
- Trackable Courier Service: This shipping option is the fastest, with delivery taking 5-9 days, although it costs a flat rate of CAD 38.70.
There are no customer reviews on the pharmacy website or on independent review platforms like Trustpilot.com or Reviews.io. This is surprising for a company with at least 4 years of operation, and it doesn’t give a great impression of the company or improve customers’ trust.
The online pharmacy drugstore claims not to request prescriptions for its men’s and women’s needs products. It is either the online pharmacy engages in illegal activities by not requesting prescriptions, or its medications are not approved by international bodies. Hence, this online drugstore is either operating illegally or dealing in unapproved drugs, contrary to its claim.
In addition to its non-approval by any regulatory bodies, the online pharmacy is also anonymous, with no information whatsoever on it. Hence, based on all which have been discussed about the pharmacy e-store, it is a scam online pharmacy.
