Today, we will review Ed-RxDrugstore.com. We will go into the details of every aspect of this pharmacy and help you understand if it is a legit pharmacy or a scam.

Usually, when you look at the pharmacy’s about us page, you get a lot of information about it, however, with this pharmacy, that is not the case. It provides generic information on its about us page. You just get to know that it sells branded medicines and generic ones. Also, they do not mention when they have been in operation, which areas they cover and how they source their medicines. This lack of information certainly raises many doubts.
The doubts are somewhat strengthened because the pharmacy has barely been in operation for a year. Even though the domain registration date is 2020 but it is December 2020. The pharmacy has been around for 13 to 14 months. You might be thinking, isn’t that long enough? No, it is not! You can easily find pharmacies that have been in business for over 10 years. When it comes to going with a trusted pharmacy, you should go with those that have been around for years together.
The business profile of any pharmacy can reveal a lot of information about it. Unfortunately, this pharmacy ensures that you do not go through their business profile. They use WHOIS privacy. So, it is not easy to find the pharmacy owner or the country in which the pharmacy is. Thus, if you want to know more about the pharmacy, it is very difficult to do so. On the contact us page of the pharmacy, you won’t find the country of the pharmacy, or anything else. That once again raises quite a few red flags.
Approval from Regulatory Authorities
Without knowing about the quality of the medicines, ordering from any online pharmacy is a mistake. The FAQ page mentions that the generic medicines by companies that are approved by FDA. However, it doesn’t state that the medicines are FDA approved.
In a nutshell, it is not certified by any association which you might deem creditworthy. Also, it is not part of CIPA or the American pharmacy Association. It does not have a verification batch by LegitScript as well. Whether you go through the about us page of the pharmacy or any other, you won’t find any kind of certification or association of the pharmacy with any industry body. This is one of the biggest red flags of this pharmacy.
This factor works in the favor of this pharmacy. It has a huge inventory. Also, the inventory is organized in proper categories. Some of the categories in which it can provide you with medicines include:
- Anti-viral, Antidepressants, Asthma
- Birth control, BP, Cardiovascular
- Eye drops, Hair loss, General health
- Hormones, Men’s health
As you can see, the number of categories is pretty vast. In each of these categories, there are quite a few medicines available. The problem is that it does not inspire confidence that the quality of those medicines will be good enough. Despite having such a large inventory, it hardly makes any sense to order from this pharmacy.
Of course, since you’re buying generic medicines, you might be able to save money. There is no doubt about it. The problem is that you are saving money by compromising the quality of the drugs. That is not good enough. If you’re going to order from this pharmacy because of the cheaper prices, you need to think again.
Payments and Deliveries
The pharmacy states that it accepts MasterCard, Visa, ACH, Diners Club, JCB, and so on. It also uses a trusted payment gateway, so you won’t have to worry about hacking your card.
The pharmacy states that it can deliver you drugs with DHL, UPS, FedEx, and various other courier partners. So, deliveries are not going to be a problem. Of course, you will most likely be paying for shipping charges additionally. The cost adds up to your total.
How can a pharmacy whose domain was registered in December 2020 have customer feedback dating back to January 2020? That summarizes the quality of Ed-RxDrugstore.com reviews available on its testimonials page. Sure enough, there are quite a few testimonials, but most are not genuine because of the date issued. Will you trust a pharmacy that has been posting fake reviews? Of course not!
There are simply too many red flags to ignore. Moreover, the pharmacy website does not do anything to inspire confidence. Hence, we will ask you to avoid it. We give it only 1 star out of 5, considering the red flags.
