Ninety seven percent of online pharmacies don't follow U.S. pharmacy laws. If you buy from one of these online pharmacies, you run a high risk of receiving counterfeit or substandard drugs. You also put your personal and financial information at risk.

Beware of an online pharmacy that shows these signs of being fake:

  • Allows you to buy drugs without a prescription from your doctor.
  • Offers deep discounts or cheap prices that seem too good to be true.
  • Sends spam or unsolicited email offering cheap drugs.
  • Is located outside of the United States.
  • Is not licensed in the United States.

Look for these signs of a safe online pharmacy:

  • Always requires a doctor's prescription.
  • Provides a physical address and telephone number in the United States.
  • Offers a pharmacist to answer your questions.
  • Has a license with your state board of pharmacy. Check to see if it does.

That's why I buy my prescriptions at the corner store. I get a discounted price using my RxDrugCard.

I just came onto your post and found it quite interesting. I am also associated with Canadian prescription, Pharmacy on line Canada and enjoy to read the stuff on the same as its rarely found on internet. Thanks again for writing such a good post.

It truly is amazing on how easy it is to purchase from on-line pharmacies without any problem. It is so widespread that it is making it hard to shut all the illegal ones down.

The scary thing is a lot of these online pharmacies look legitimate. They look like they're big companies because of their nice websites. Senior Citizens especially should watch out for scams and should check to see if <a href="http://www.medicarebenefits.com/medicare-part-d/" rel="nofollow">Medicare Part D</a> will cover their prescription drugs.

on line sellers are not guaranteed, some people use this as a modus. don't be deceived guys. when it comes to medicine just be sure to get it from pharmacy.

I wouldn't trust buying from online pharmacy unless they provide the physical address and contact person and that the pharmacy is legit and has license to operate.
