Domain Name Information

This pharmacy is using a website address that has been registered since 1998. This suggests that they are more likely to be legit since they’ve been online and in business for a very long time.

registered in 1998

We can also find an address for the pharmacy in the domain database. This is a good indication that they are safe since they don’t try to hide their real location information.

Business Profile

The address in the domain name database matches up with the details shown on their website, normally a good sign. When we check this address, we can see that they are really located where they claim to be.

real location

They also say that they have been established in 1992, and are based in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

Regulatory Approval

Pharmex says that they are fully accredited by the Ontario College of Pharmacists. A check with the Ontario College of Pharmacists does prove that they are entitled to operate as they claim.


When we check with LegitScript, we can see that they are also certified as part of their merchant program.


Medications on Sale

The pharmacy is selling all your regular high street pharmacy drugs you would expect to find. They also offer over-the-counter medications along with prescription drugs.

Main product categories sold by this pharmacy include:

  • Allergy
  • Children’s remedies
  • Cough, cold, and flu
  • Pain relief

These medications are dispensed from their pharmacy location in Ontario. This ensures that they are safe as they are dispensed from a reliable source.

Prices on the store aren’t as competitive as we see elsewhere online, however. So if you are looking for low-cost prescription drugs, this may not be the best choice.

Other services provided by the pharmacy include mobile apps for both Android and Apple devices, pharmacist consultations, and counseling over the phone if you need it.

Payment Methods

Their website is secure, and you can pay using the following options:

  • Major credit cards
  • Company benefits plans
  • Ontario Drug Benefit program


This pharmacy offers free shipping, but only if you are located in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba. Outside of these provinces of Canada, they won’t deliver to you.

While prescription deliveries are free, if you are buying over-the-counter medications there will be a charge. This is the case unless ordered with prescriptions or you spend more than $50.

They say that they hope to get your meds with you within 24 to 48 hours of the receipt of your order.

Dispensing Fee

Even though shipping is free, you will have to pay for your meds to be dispensed. This isn’t what we normally find with online pharmacies and is an unwelcome extra cost. The pharmacy charge is $7.99 when you buy 90 days of medication from the store. Reviews

The pharmacy has reviews on their Google profile but only one on their own website. As you might imagine, the customer feedback on their website is very positive about their service.

The customer feedback on the Google page isn’t entirely perfect, however. While 7 of the 9 comments are very good, with people commenting on the great service they have received and fast delivery, two comments are negative.

negative feedback

This comment, though old, does certainly show that some people have had many problems with the pharmacy. This includes a delay in shipping their medication when they needed it. Though despite this, it seems likely that most customers are happy with the service provided and it is safe to use.


This pharmacy does appear to be legit, though not the right choice for everyone. They are correctly regulated as they claim, they’ve been in business for a long time, and they have some happy customers.

These are all good indications of a legit online pharmacy, but there are downsides. This pharmacy only sells medications in a select few Canadian provinces, and their prices aren’t the lowest we’ve seen online.
