Real Customers, Honest Reviews

This was my first order. Everything was handled quite well with knowledgeable, and very friendly phone representatives. It took about three weeks to receive the prescription. That was understandable due to it being the first order, and it was coming from Turkey. No doubt it was probably also affected by the pandemic here and in Europe. Overall I was very pleased with the procedures and will be ordering additional medications as needed from Canada Meds United.
