An estimated 80 to 90 Web sites now offer to sell prescription drugs at lower Canadian prices. Reputable pharmacies say they use the following safety and service standards:

Display the pharmacy's license number and name of the authority that granted it. Canadian pharmacies are licensed and regulated by the College of Pharmacy in each province. Consumers can call them to verify pharmacies' status.

Require patients to provide a doctor's prescription, which will be reviewed by a Canadian doctor as required by Canadian law. (Sites that say prescriptions are not needed are risky.)

Require patients to submit details of their medical history.

Provide the pharmacy's mailing address and a telephone number that patients can call to speak with a pharmacist or ask questions about the service. (Sites that allow only e-mail contact are suspect.)

Explain differences between American and Canadian drugs and labels and why some medications are not sold.

Canadian mail order: Two U.S. nonprofits help Americans of any age fill prescriptions from licensed Canadian pharmacies by mail order: The Minnesota Senior Federation at (877) 645-0261, ext. 124, and the United Health Alliance at (866) 633-7482.
