"What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US."

Vagifem (Estradiol) is used as local estrogen replacement therapy to help patients experiencing vaginal atrophy due to low estrogen in the body during menopause.
The medication works by replacing the estrogen missing from the body. The ovaries produce the hormone estrogen and naturally women from age 45 to 55 experience a decrease in this hormone production. This reduction in estrogen leads to menopause where women can experience hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and the monthly periods stop. The vaginal symptoms can consist of irritation, stinging, and itch. Some women may experience pain during sexual intercourse due to menopause.
