People these days prefer generic drugs to branded ones. However, not all pharmacies sell the same kind of generic drugs. Some of them might be selling substandard meds as well. Today, we will share with you our due diligence of one such pharmacy, which goes by the name of CaMeds.org. We would go into the details of this pharmacy to help you understand whether you should order from this pharmacy or not.
The about us page states that the pharmacy has been in business for 12 years. If this is true, it might be a legit pharmacy, after all. Also, it states that drugs are sourced from Indian companies. Indian FDA approves them. However, that does not inspire much confidence since the standards of the Indian FDA and US FDA might vary.
We found a surprising bit of information when we dig deeper into the domain details of the pharmacy.
While the about us page of the pharmacy states that it has been in business for the years, the domain age states that the domain was just registered 40 days back. It clearly indicates the claim that the pharmacy is 12 years old is false. Even if you assume that the pharmacy entered the online business a bit late than too, 11 years late does not sound good. Due to this reason, you need to think again before ordering from this pharmacy.
The company goes to lengths to ensure that it does not provide much information about the owner or the parent company. You get the name and that the country might be Brazil. Even the third-party trackers are not able to take much information about it. There is confusion regarding the country of ownership as well.
The website itself does not provide accurate information regarding its headquarters. Due to this reason, there is a high probability that it might turn out to be a scam.
The pharmacy states that the drugs are from Indian FDA approved by the company. It does not even provide a certification of the same. Also, it does not provide details regarding the individual certification of the meds that they are selling. In all probability, it might just be another unfounded claim.
Even if the drugs are Indian FDA approved you cannot be 100% sure that they would pass the US FDA. Due to this reason, you have to take their claims with a pinch of salt.
One Department in which the pharmacy certainly scores is that it has drugs across various categories like:
- Diabetes, Women’s and Men’s health
- Skincare, Hypertension
- Birth control, Surgery, Obesity
That is why the number of available drugs on the pharmacy website is quite a lot. However, finding the exact replacement of the branded drug is not going to be an easy task among so many options.
In comparison with branded drugs, of course, you will find these drugs to be more affordable. However, when you compare them with other pharmacies selling generic drugs, you will realize that the price is almost similar. That is why while you do not end up paying more on the prices of meds, but you do not save money either.
Payments and Deliveries
The pharmacy accepts payments by credit cards. That is why, even if you still want to go ahead and order from this pharmacy, you will not face any problem.
However, when you look at the shipping, you will realize that you would have to pay for it. It offers International Express Mail, which can take up to 9 business days. It does not mention the rate of the same. It offers Standard International Airmail, which can take up to 21 days after dispatch. It does not provide tracking. Also, it will set you back by $10.
If you plan to order from this pharmacy despite so many red flags, you need to factor in the shipping cost as well. It is likely that once you factor in the shipping, you will realize that you will not be able to save money, but you might end up spending even more.
During the 1st glance, the testimonials page might seem like a valid one. You might be thinking that this pharmacy might be valid after all. However, the first review itself states that they received the drugs in 2014. The pharmacy started operation in 2020. It indicates that the reviews are fake. That is why; there is no point in trusting the testimonials page.
The third-party CaMeds.org reviews also state that this pharmacy might not be legit. Our research also states that said there are quite a few shady things about the pharmacy. Due to all these factors, it is a good idea to avoid this pharmacy.
Due to red flags, we can only give it 1 star out of 5.
