Don't use online pharmacies unless they're licensed in Canada. You have no assurances about what you're putting into your body.

Generic manufacturers in Canada legally have to demonstrate that their pills dissolve in the same manner as the brand name pills, within a reasonable margin of error (~5% I think). Otherwise they won't get approved for use. Guidelines vary in other countries. I'd 100% trust generic drugs licensed for use in Canada but not anything coming from outside of North America.
