Domain Name Information
The domain name record for this pharmacy backs up the claim on the site that they have been around since 1999. Naturally, a store which has been around for such a long time should be more reliable than one which was started this year, so this is a good sign.
The name and address of the person who registered this website name can also be found in the record. This is also a good thing to find because scam online drugstores often use a privacy service to keep their details out of the records.
Business Contact Details
On the contact page of the drugstore is found an address for the business. The business is based in Acapulco, Mexico and it seems to be a genuine business location.
Proper regulation helps to keep people safe when ordering medicine online. This store shows no sign of having any regulation, they do claim that the drugs they sell are FDA approved but don’t show evidence to support this statement.
LegitScript have taken a look at this pharmacy and their findings aren’t good. They classify the site a ‘rogue Internet pharmacy’. They believe the store isn’t legally allowed to sell medicine in the jurisdictions that they do.
Drugs are dispensed from, what they claim to be, a registered and licensed pharmacy in Mexico. There is somewhat of a problem with this though. All the medicine will have instructions listed in Spanish so you will need to translate if you can’t otherwise read it.
They will supply you with both brand-name and generic pill equivalents. They say that their Mexican generic pills are of the highest quality, but without much in the way of regulation, how can we really be sure?
Unfortunately, there are no coupons or promo codes for MedsMex.com.
You do not need a prescription to order medication from this store. They say that you are agreeing to be buying the medicine for personal use when you place an order. They also say that they don’t have a pharmacist working for them, so they are unable to give advice on usage. You are required to know about the pills or have a history of using them to be safe.
Yet on a different page of the site, they state that their experienced Mexican pharmacy pharmacists will do whatever they can to meet your medical needs. It seems rather strange that they don’t have a pharmacist working in their pharmacy. Perhaps, it is just that their pharmacist doesn’t speak English and therefore can’t give advice.
Payment and Shipping
Whilst the store shows lots of logos for credit cards and other types of payment, they currently don’t process credit card payments. As it stands, they will only take payment by E-check and Western Union money transfer. The site does have a valid security certificate so you should be safe entering your financial details here.
Shipping to the US is by express mail at a cost of $24.95. Delivery times are expected to be between 7 and 30 business days. It should also be noted that they state it can take up to 3 days to process and dispatch your order. Worldwide express delivery costs $39.95. Delivery times are predicted to be between 15 and 30 days. A signature will be required to accept the package in both cases.
MedsMex.com Reviews and Complaints
MedsMex.com reviews can be found on their own Facebook page. The majority of people posting comments here are very happy with the service provided by the pharmacy. The customer feedback we see here seems to be genuine with the overall rating an impressive 4.8 out of five.
Not everyone is happy though, with a few testimonials highly critical of the drugstore. In one customer report, they rather alarmingly suggest that they have received fake medication, and this is from a long time customer.
It is difficult to know for sure if this customer really received fake medication and the people who run the site haven’t commented on the post. This lack of response could leave you to believe there may be some truth to the customer’s complaint.
This pharmacy is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, they have been operating for a very long time with plenty of happy customers. On the other hand, there is a lack of regulation and a possible suggestion of fake medication. Overall we give this drugstore 3-stars out of 5.
