Expectation Vs Reality: How to be sure that the drug and service is authentic?

The first and the most basic check is to see if the seller of the drugs has displayed their physical address or is hiding see if the seller of the drugs has displayed their physical address or is hiding behind some "fill-up-a-form-contact-us" curtain. Normal logic says that if they are hiding their address, they have much to hide about their drugs too – Genuine or Fake is your decision.

Secondly, the FDA - The Food and Drug Administration – of almost all the countries require the FDA License Number, the batch number, expiry date and manufacturer's address to be printed on both the primary drug pack as well as the secondary outer package. Check if all these details are mentioned on the drug packs as this is by far the best check to know if the drug is authentic, as authorized for manufacture by that FDA, or is illegal or fake.

Lastly, visual inspection as stated by the World Health Organization (WHO) (1999) is also a good benchmark in identifying potential fake drug irrespective of the analytical methods used. This is because such observation serves as a lead to identifying fake products even in the absence of the knowledge of the physical characteristics of a genuine drug product.

As stated by WHO, commonly encountered physical defects that should be looked out for in tablets include:

a. Excessive powder and/or pieces of tablets at the bottom of the container (from abraded, crushed or broken tablets);

b. Cracks or chips in the tablets, swelling, mottling, discolouration, fusion of tablets;

c. Appearance of crystal on the walls of the container or on the tablet.

d. Hardening or softening, cracking, swelling, mottling or discolouration of capsule shell should also be looked out for.

These are some of the factors which should satisfy you on all our drugs being authentic. Your trust in us to make the first purchase will practically prove that we source and deliver only authentic drugs from licensed international pharmacies and manufacturers located in Australia, Canada, EU, India, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, USA and many reputable countries.

All of the medicines that we sell are approved by the FDA which requires the FDA license number, batch number, expiry date and manufacturer's to be printed on the primary drug packaging as well as the outside secondary outer packaging.
