Online Pharmacy Questions

An online pharmacy is a pharmacy that carries out operations online and provides customers with the option to have their medicines mailed or shipped to them. While most online pharmacies are legitimate and provide a quality service, there are some that are not. To learn more about online pharmacies and which ones to avoid, take a look below at the questions that have been answered by the Experts.

Where or what online pharmacy allows a person to order Vicodin without a prescription?

Vicodin is a prescription pain reliever composed of Acetaminophen and Hydrocodine. A person must see their doctor in order to acquire a prescription for this drug. There are off-shore websites that claim to provide prescriptions online. However, this is illegal and, in most cases, is a scam to take people's money. A person may send the money and never receive the drug. In the event that the person does receive the drug, there is no guarantee of the safety of the product. Furthermore, because it is illegal to prescribe medication without first seeing a patient, it is doubtful the package would clear customs. If a person cannot afford to see a doctor, there are Over-The-Counter pain medicines such as Motrin that can be purchased.

What online pharmacy can a person order Methotrexate from without a prescription?

There are basically two ways to order Methotrexate from an online pharmacy. The first option is to visit a doctor and receive a valid prescription if the prescription is to be filled in the United States. The second option may include traveling to Mexico and be seen by a doctor there who may write a prescription to be filled in Mexico. However, the person will generally have to deal with customs upon returning to the states.

Websites that offer prescription drugs without a prescription are not only illegal but very risky. The person may pay for the drug and never receive it or may receive something other than what was ordered. There is typically no regulating such medication which increases the risk to the person ordering to it.

What online pharmacy can a doctor send a prescription for Latisse to that would cost less than $100 a month?

Many people may think it is better to deal with an online pharmacy from another country to save on costs. However, while the product may be cheaper, there is basically no way to ensure the quality of the medicine.

In this particular case, a person may contact the maker of Latisse to receive discounts on future purchases. This may be a safer and more economical way of ordering the medicine.

Lumigan is another option that a person may try to save some money as it contains the same ingredients as Latisse. This company generally provides online coupons. However, this product may not be as strong as Latisse.

What is the best online pharmacy to order Valacyclovir from without a prescription?

In order to purchase Valacyclovir from any online pharmacy in the United States, a person must have a prescription. Many foreign pharmacies claim to provide such drugs without prescriptions. This is not only illegal but very unsafe for the consumer.

The safest option is generally speaking with a doctor, receiving a prescription and having the prescription filled locally. In order to save money, there are urgent care, quick care and local clinics available that one can visit.

How does a person know if an online pharmacy is safe?

When surfing the web, finding a reputable online pharmacy may be frustrating. Many people have been scammed by using internet pharmacies.

When looking for an online pharmacy, it is encouraged to avoid off-shore pharmacies and those pharmacies that claim to provide drugs without prescriptions.

Besides, it is also illegal to sell prescription drugs without first being seen by a doctor and receiving a prescription.

With so many people conducting business online, it isn't surprising that there are online pharmacies.
