The Israel Ministry of Health uses the most stringent regulations for the quality control of all name brand and generic drugs through the strict enforcement of the internationally recognized Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines. All medications are certified by the Israeli Ministry of Health, and most are certified by the FDA as well.

Very often the same medication is packed differently in other countries, and sometimes the same drug is called by a different name. For example, in the U.S. a medication might come as a round, red tablet; in Canada it could be an elongated white tablet; and in Israel, the same medicine may be a blue and white capsule. Also, the packaging might be different than its U.S. equivalent. All packages contain a patient leaflet printed in English and Hebrew. All medications in Israel are labeled in Hebrew, Arabic, English, and Russian.

To summarize, the drug you order may have a different:

  • Brand name (eg. Fosamax is called Fosalan in Israel)
  • Packaging (blister pack, box, bottle, etc.)
  • Form (tablet, capsule, caplet, round, oval, etc.)
  • Color
  • Name

The bottom line is: The medicine itself is identical and of the highest quality.

Yes. In Israel, a pharmacist receives his or her license to practice only after receiving a university degree, followed by an internship. Only the Israel Ministry of Health can give the license, after which the pharmacist is assessed during his or her years of practice in order to ensure the highest professional standards. Once qualified, licensed pharmacists are allowed to dispense and fill prescriptions. There is constant updating of information, and the pharmacist is required to have knowledge of all of the latest drugs. In addition, our managing pharmacist was trained and is licensed in Australia.

Not necessarily. Although, other Israeli pharmacies will claim that all Israeli drugs are kosher, this is not true. Almost all rabbis will say that a medication that is required for someone’s health, even if it is not for a life-threatening illness, does not have to be kosher. Vitamins do not necessarily fall under this category. Before Passover, you can contact us and ask which drugs are “Kosher for Passover” per the “Badatz of the Eida Chareidit of Jerusalem.”

IsraelPharm’s policy is not to ship prescription medication to people in Israel or Canada.

When the patent of a brand name drug expires, drug companies can manufacture exact copies of these drugs, provided they have the exact therapeutic and standard quality as the original. Generic drugs are usually much less expensive because the price no longer reflects marketing, research, and development costs of the original patent.

Being a legal and ethical online drugstore, we are not able to supply psychotropic drugs (e.g., Xanax, Ritalin, Valium, etc.) or drugs that need to be refrigerated (e.g., insulin). At this time, we are unable to provide medication for animals of any kind.

It is important to know that in the US, personal drug imports are generally permitted but not technically legal.

Since 2000, millions of Americans with inadequate or no drug coverage, as well as those seeking critical medications that are not available domestically, have purchased medication from foreign pharmacies, mostly using online pharmacies. This process is known as personal drug importation.

The U.S. government generally does not stop individuals from importing medication for their own use (usually up to a three-month supply of non-controlled drugs), however, under most circumstances, it is technically illegal. According to the FDA, no one has ever been prosecuted for personal drug importation (importing small quantities of medication for personal use).

U.S. FDA guidelines recommend importing up to a maximum three-month supply of medications at a time. complies with this recommendation. Obviously, buying a three-month supply from though us saves you money, since you only pay one shipping fee.

The most important piece of information is your prescription, which must be less than a year old and written by a physician licensed to practice medicine and prescribe medications in your country of residence.. No prescription medication can be dispensed unless a valid prescription is provided. You also will be asked to complete a medical form, where you will need to provide information about your medical history and current medications, as well as your address and phone number and ID number (social security, passport or driver’s license number).

Place your order online (see how), send us your prescription and we will take care of the rest. Our website is 100% secure and we are PCI compliant.

We keep all prescriptions on file until their expiration date, so you can reorder online after each three-month period; there is no need to fax the prescription a second time. We will contact you before your original order runs out to see if you would like to have your refills filled.
