How to get valacyclovir online in Canada with Maple.

First, choose your symptoms

Cold sores and herpes are irritating — they’re a nuisance in your day-to-day, and can be contagious.

If you don’t have employer / insurer coverage, fees may apply since many of our services aren’t covered by provincial health plans. This is often because of our use of secure messaging and a national network of doctors and nurse practitioners.

Payment may be required, and will include the prescriptions for valacyclovir if the doctor deems it necessary.

Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Maple connects you with doctors and other healthcare providers online via text, audio, or video. After you log in to your Maple account, you can request an online consultation. Consultations work similarly to in-person appointments — the doctor can examine you as needed, ask questions about your symptoms, go through your health history, and determine if an online valacyclovir prescription is right for you. If they think your condition is more serious, they may tell you to go to a clinic for an in-person, hands-on examination.
