  1. 1

    Obtain a prescription for Metformin from your physician.

  2. 2

    Find an online pharmacy that fits within your budget and accepts your insurance provider (if applicable). Many online pharmacies such as Medisave and International Drug Mart offer substantial savings on prescription medications including Metformin. For more online pharmacies that offer Metformin, see "resources".

  3. 3

    Decide which online pharmacy best suits your needs and log onto their website. Be sure to have your major credit card handy so that you will be able to make your purchase.

  4. 4

    Follow the pharmacy policy to provide proof that you have a legal prescription for Metformin. Many online pharmacies will accept faxed copies of your prescription. Some will call your physician to confirm your prescription.

    If you are having difficulty fulfilling this step, contact the pharmacy you wish to place an order with through their contact number (usually located on the front page of their website, or at the bottom under the heading "contact us"). A pharmacy representative will be more than happy to assist you in completing your order.

  5. 5

    Place your order for Metformin using your major credit card. Be sure to provide a physical shipping address so that you will be able to receive your medication through the mail.

Tips and warnings

  • Bear in mind the shipping policy of your chosen pharmacy. Some ship through regular mail, which could mean a delivery time of up to two weeks. If your medication is needed sooner, be sure to add the Express Shipping option (an additional charge is applied) so that you will be able to receive your medication when you need it.
