As per USPS, a signature is required upon receipt of your ordered medications. While it is not the standard USPS policy, in some cases, the delivery personnel may leave the package on the mailbox or doorstep without a signature.

DAW on a prescription stands for Dispense As Written. This means that the pharmacist must dispense the medication exactly as it is written on the prescription.

- What is the difference between a generic medication and a brand name medication?
A generic medication is a medication which is manufactured by a company which was not the innovator. Due to expired patents on certain medications, other manufacturers are allowed to produce and sell the generic equivalent medication at a lower, more competitive price. A generic medication is bio-equivalent, meaning it contains the equivalent active ingredient, to the brand name medication. Due to strict regulations for the generic drug industry, these drugs must provide the same therapeutic effect as the brand name medication. However, there may be some variation to the size, shape and color of the medication.
- Why do the pills I received look different than the ones I get from my local pharmacy?
If you are used to brand name medications and have ordered a generic through us, the pills dispensed by our contracted pharmacies will look different. As stated above, generics do not look the same as brand name products, even though they contain similar active ingredient(s) and work in a similar way.
If you have ordered the brand name medication and see variance from the brand name medication you have purchased locally do not be alarmed. Brand name medication sometimes varies in appearance and name from country to country. In different countries manufacturers will often use different trade names and under international licensing agreements, a different manufacturer may be responsible for the distribution of a brand name medication.
If you have ordered a generic medication and see variance from the generic medication you purchased locally please be aware that generic medications manufactured by different companies will have different appearances.
