Medication Management Made Easy

Pre-sorted medication packs take all the sorting and guesswork out of taking the right medication at the right time and are ideal for individuals who take multiple medications.

You can even have your supplements sorted along with your prescription medication.

Pillway pre-sorted medication packs

All your medications come pre-sorted based on when you need to take them throughout the day.

Each individual pack clearly shows the date, time of day, and the names of your medications.

Keeps you on track by ensuring the right medications are taken at the right time.

Pre-sorted medication packs are optional. If you prefer, you can choose to have your medications delivered in traditional vials.

Up to 6 Month Medication Supply

Pillway is ideal for snowbirds who spend long periods of time outside Canada and need larger quantities of prescription medications to last their entire trip.

Unlike some pharmacies that limit prescription medications to a 3 month supply at a time, Pillway can often fill prescriptions for up to 6 months at a time by reaching out to your provincial or private drug insurance plan on your behalf and requesting an exemption to provide you with a larger supply of your prescription medication.

Please note that while 6-month supplies of prescription medication are often possible, some insurance plans may not allow for a 6-month supply.**

Get Your Medication While in the U.S.

If you’re a Pillway client in Canada travelling in the U.S. and either forget to take your medication with you, need additional medication or run out while in the United States, don’t worry, we have you covered.

Pillway can ship up to 90 days of medication to you by courier to the U.S.

The following rules and requirements apply for U.S. delivery to ensure smooth delivery:

  • Required documents: Pillway will require the following documents - photocopy of your passport, your US Address, port of entry, date of entry, list of accompanying family members
  • Shipping and duty costs will apply. Pillway will track the order and do their best to inform you in advance of the duty costs.
  • You will be required to pay the duty amount by logging onto the UPS website and paying online prior to your medication delivery.

    Alternatively, if you don’t pay in advance, you can pay by cheque that the UPS Driver will collect. They do not accept cash or debit/credit cards at the door.
  • Delivery can take up to 5 business days.
  • NOTE: Pillway cannot ship narcotic or controlled substances to the U.S.
