Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why is no prescription required to sell your products even though one is required to purchase the same medication at the pharmacy?

United Pharmacies is an Oceania-based company that operates under different laws and regulations. Non-controlled drugs can be legally imported into the US and many other countries by individuals for their own personal use (depending on local legislation).

2. Do I need to have a medical evaluation before ordering my medication?

United Pharmacies does not require you to have a medical evaluation, but it is strongly suggested to inform your physician about any medications you are currently taking or intend to take prior to ordering. Some medications may cause unexpected problems that can be avoided by discussing their use with your physician.

3. Are the products that you sell genuine?

All medications sold by United Pharmacies are genuinely branded products unless otherwise clearly stated on our website. As we are based in Oceania some of our suppliers are in countries with different packing laws and branding so the packaging of our products may be different than what you are used to seeing.

4. Are the products you provide within their expiration dates?

As it is illegal to sell any medication that has passed its expiration date we will not ship any medication that has expired.

5. Do you guarantee that I will receive my order?

If your order does not arrive we will happily refund the full amount of your purchase. We can also arrange a replacement order to be sent if you prefer.
