Q. Is my PBRX card valid in Canada and European based pharmacies?
Answer: No. We do not recommend, endorse or refer U.S. based consumers to Canadian and/or European pharmacy providers. If you shop for pharmaceuticals internationally you run the risk of receiving counterfeit medications out of Canada, China and the European Union. If the medication you are receiving is not FDA Approved, you are putting your health at grave risk! There have been cases out of Canada, where Cancer Drugs have been sold to U.S. based consumers and have been found to be counterfeits and ineffective for treating cancer.
