Remember When Buying Drugs Online

  • Conduct Your Research
    Always refer to online pharmacy review sites to know the most trusted companies. Reading through these feedback will give you a clear picture which site you can actually trust. Other review sites include price evaluations among different medicine companies. The prices will always vary among these different drug stores, whether offline or from the net. Evaluate all the prices available to understand which offer is value for your money.
  • Double Check its Authenticity
    A trusted Internet drug store advertises it has a licensed pharmacist. The licensed pharmacist is in charge of answering your questions or clarifications about the drugs marketed. The company must also require the buyers to deliver a doctor’s prescribed note. The note is commonly sent through email, traditional mail, or through fax. This delivery will verify and authorize your purchase for the medicines. The pharmacy should follow this precaution since it’s unlawful to send

Generic Drugs and Online Pharmacies

Some people believe much of the misinformation published by those who would have them pay ten times more for genuine drugs rather than the far cheaper generic versions. Much of the confusion and misconception exists because, understandably, many can’t see how the generic drug can be the same thing but be so cheap. Well, here is why the vast difference exists. It’s no secret, nor is it difficult to understand. It’s simply economics versus opportunism (although sometimes justified).

The following applies to all generic drugs sold through online pharmacies and in retail pharmacies on the street. There is no difference.

When the drug is first researched, discovered and developed, it takes a number of years and many, many millions (if not billions) of dollars in research, failure, more research, testing through multiple stages. Then come the trials, which have to satisfy the likes of the FDA (most countries have their …

Protecting Yourself From Pharmacy Errors

There are several different types of pharmacy errors that can be made. First, sometimes your prescription can be completely switched with another whose medicine looks like yours. Also, some drugs come to the pharmacy in a high dose, and pharmacists must dilute these medications before they give them to you. In some cases, pharmacists may forget to lessen the strength of the medicine, giving you a dosage that is much too strong. Additionally, if the pharmacist does not monitor the side effects, it can result in serious health issues for you. Lastly, some medications can have adverse reactions with others, so if a pharmacist does not double-check your current prescriptions, it can harm you.

To protect yourself from pharmacy errors, there are some things that you can do to double-check the work of the pharmacists. First, when your doctor prescribes you a medicine, make sure you know what the medication …

Glucosamine

Glucosamine is a naturally produced amino sugar which is found in small amounts in foods. It plays an important role in maintaining the cartilage gel-like material between our joints. The body also produces a carbohydrate called Chondroitin, which is thought to promote water retention and elasticity as well as blocking the enzymes that break down cartilage.

As we get older the body’s ability to manufacture and synthesize Glucosamine and Chondroitin decreases. This probably contributes to the joint problems we have all come to associate with growing old, a fact that health food companies did not take long to latch on to.

Although studies have been carried out in numerous countries to try to prove conclusively that Glucosamine is effective in treating arthritis and joint problems there have been an equal number of questions raised about the methodology of many of these studies. One such study, in Europe, took X-rays to …

These beneficial effects enable the user to focus more on weight loss, and minimizes the tendency to cheat or lose track. The user is more relaxed, mentally focussed and pain-free. The herb has been shown to be very effective in assisting weight loss in this indirect manner, in certain women.

Theoretically, the increase in blood flow to various muscles in the body ccould increase oxygen delivery to the muscles.

Lower Cost Prescription Drug Alternative

For those living within close proximity to Mexico it is becoming more and more commonplace to purchase prescription drugs online, via a Mexican pharmacy. Prices are notably less than what is charged at, both, American and Canadian pharmacies. (It is possible to obtain some medications WITHOUT a prescription.)

American’s are prohibited from ordering a prescription drug online and requesting that it be shipped across the border, as it is highly illegal. Instead, they must travel to Mexico to make the purchase, carrying it back across the border themselves.

Most Mexican pharmacies carry generic and name brand medications. These medications are clearly marked and typically cost $10-$15 less, per prescription, than a non-Mexican pharmacy charges. That savings can really add up, especially over a long period of time.

There are actually two “classes” of Mexican pharmacies. There are those who are allowed to dispense controlled substances and those who are not. …

Ways to Reduce Prescription Drug Costs

  1. Check With Your Doctor About Free Samples. This can save you quite a bit. Drug companies give doctors free samples all the time. Be sure to check with your doctor, or anyone else in your family that is taking prescription drugs.
  2. Ask Your Doctor About Generic Drugs. Check with your doctor to see if it’s possible to get a less expensive alternative drug to the one you are using now. In addition, you may also be able to get older equivalents to newer, more expensive drugs.
  3. Go With 90 A Day Supply. Many insurance companies and pharmacies offer discounts when you order in larger quantities, such as when purchasing a 90 day supply. After all, pharmacies save money because they only need to pay to have the prescription filled once.
  4. Talk With Your Doctor About A Higher Dose. By doing this, you may be able to use a pill cutter

Spiritual Nature of Pharmaceutical Drugs

With such a record, the pharmaceutical industry (and the medical profession which prescribes drugs) would be considered criminal by any other civilized standard. However, prescription drugs are not only legal, they are encouraged by both modern medicine, and the Christian Church in the U.S.A. That is interesting because the Bible, the standard by which Christians live their lives, condemns the everyday use of any kind of drugs, potions, or spells, as well as poisoning or witchcraft. It’s called pharmakeia in the original text and can be found in Galatians 5:19-21.

When confronted with the teaching that God condemns pharmakeia, most Christians believe the Apostle Paul had to be referring to illegal drugs (like marijuana and heroin), when he wrote his letter to the Church at Galatia, surely not prescription drugs. They are at least right about the first part.

Narcotics and hallucinogenic drugs were not uncommon in 1st century …

Pharmacy Visit Demystified

Number 1: “If I use the drive-through, filling my prescription will be as quick as getting a hamburger with fries.”

This one is actually false. It will probably take longer to fill a prescription through this method. The drive-through window is great when it is used as it is intended: as a convenience for simple transactions, especially for people picking up refills on prescriptions. On the other hand, conducting more complicated business through a window and a microphone like changing an insurance , or coming to the pharmacy for the first time, can be cumbersome, and it may hold up the people in line behind you. Come inside if you will need a little extra time or attention. If you do actually need your prescription in a hurry, waiting inside will get it to you quicker.

Number 2: “Why does it take so long to fill my prescription? All you …
