Official-drugstore.com is an online pharmacy that claims to be No 1. But one has to see what kind of features and offers it has to substantiate this claim, so here is what we could find out:
Official-drugstore.com bears a Canadian Maple Leaf insignia, so one naturally expects that this drugstore has something to do with Canadian pharmacies or medicines produced in Canadian pharmacies. But when one checks out the inside pages, there appears to be no information related to Canada or any other country, so the seals are a hogwash. One cannot determine from where Official Drugstore is working and for how many years it has been serving its customers. One also doesn’t get to know the actual source of the generic medicines being sold here. Regarding the FDA status of the generics sold here, Official-Drugstore has a roundabout stance and says that all generic medicines are approved by the FDA, which isn’t true. Medicines being sold here have been categorized under areas such as Erectile Dysfunction, Anti-Anxiety and Anti-Depression, Anti-Allergy, General Health, Men’s and Women’s Health, etc.
The Erectile Dysfunction area contains both brand and generic medicines: 4 tablets of brand Viagra (100 mg) are available for sale for $69.99, making the price of each tablet to be around $17.50. However, 10 tablets of the generic version of Viagra (100 mg) cost only $54.95, making the price of each tablet to be around $5.50. 12 tablets of brand Cialis (20 mg) are available for sale for $130.32, making the price of each tablet to be around $10.86. However, 20 tablets of the generic version of Cialis (20 mg) cost only $89.95, making the price of each tablet to be around $4.50.
Customers can use their credit cards like Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards to pay for their orders. They can also use e-checks to buy their medicines. The store uses two standard methods for the delivery i.e., Airmail and EMS. Airmail delivery takes time i.e. from 2 to 3 weeks. EMS delivery is much quicker i.e., from 3 to 8 days, but this delivery time subjective to customs clearance. Airmail cost is $10 and EMS cost is $30.
Official-Drugstore advises customers to contact on +1(718) 340-3454 with their order numbers in case they have any questions. Alternatively, they can send an email to the site admin and wait for a reply:
As per the store policies, Official-Drugstore issues partial or full refund or a replacement after investigation and approval.
In order to see how Official-drugstore.com was doing in terms of customer satisfaction, I decided to check online forums in the hope of finding any postings. I was able to find only one review on Online Pharmacy Reviews forum and this review portrayed Official-drugstore in a negative light:
A prospective customer who went by the name CJ posted 9 months ago that he had placed a “small preliminary order” at Official Drugstore site and his credit card was charged by the store. But he never received his order at was supposedly “detained” at the customs of NYC. To add insult to the injury, the customer support stopped responding to this customer’s calls and emails. He warns other users to stay away from this “scam” medicine store.
Having thin customer testimonials and that too being negative is a big problem and not only Official-Drugstore is lean in terms of customer reviews but the sole review that exists under its name is extremely negative. This is enough to tell us what kind of a generic medicine source Official-drugstore.com happens to be.

It is a site located in the Russian federation, which is a popular destination for scam sites. It doesn’t generate much traffic and is a low trust and unsafe site, with a potentially high-risk score.
Scamner’s findings were a bit thinner than Scam Advisor: it deduced that Official-drugstore.com is not popular with visitors and thus buyers are cautioned against carrying out transactions at this site.

Official-drugstore.com is an online drug mart that goes to elaborate lengths to give the impression of legitimacy, though it’s careful enough not to disclose its own location or experience. The site has the design and content of a professionally managed drugstore. There are bonus pills and discount cards offered to prospective customers. But a quick search on the internet leads to the discovery that Official-Drugstore is not only thin in terms of customers’ reviews but the sole review related to it exposes its scam nature. Scam Advisor determined this drugstore be controlled from Russia, which is a preferred location of scam sites. Therefore, we would give Official-drugstore a rating of 1 (poor) and advise customers to stay away from it in order to save themselves from future disappointment.
