Drugs from Israel

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.

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.

We believe that selling controlled substances via digital prescription out of state and through online pharmacies is not acceptable. The potential for misuse and abuse is too high. IsraelPharm is a legal and ethical online prescription delivery service, therefore, we do not supply psychotropic drugs (e.g., Xanax, Ritalin, Valium, etc.) or drugs that need to be refrigerated (e.g., insulin). Read here
for more information about why IsraelPharm does not sell controlled substances.

At this time, we are unable to provide medication for animals of any kind.

U.S. FDA guidelines recommend importing up to a maximum three-month supply of medications at a time.

IsraelPharm.com complies with this recommendation. 

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).

 

Pharmaceutical drugs are known to be more expensive in the US than in any other advanced country.
In Israel, the government caps the price of all prescribed meds, and we sell to you at these lower prices. Often, the difference can be between 50% and 70%. 

The United States is the only developed country in the world with no similar price controls, and pharmaceutical companies can set prices for their own products, which invariably ends up more favorable to the company than to the consumer.

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.”
