Anyone use an Online Pharmacy?

There are many sites listing the bad ones and that too is a long list.
I am in need of BP control meds and have found the BS of
"must have RX".

Infuriating.

So any good ones with no RX or you tell them what you have and they have a staff doc, write the RX?

Tanks!

Untreated high blood pressure

Untreated high blood pressure is dangerous to your health. Take care of yourself and go to a pharmacy you know you can trust.

A few years ago I got some

A few years ago I got some Retin A cream (cosmetic) this way, I did not want to go to a dermatologist and pay for a visit as insurance won't cover it.
Anyway I found a place in Canada that seemed legit and I got what I needed but it was rather expensive.
So, the next time, I tried a pharmacy in Mexico? Or India? The cost was reasonable....but I'm not sure what I got, a generic version or something. I know it was not the same thing though, the label was in another language. Anyway I did not have an adverse reaction to it, but I don't think I'll try that again. There is a lot of counterfeit crap out there. Buyer beware.

Ps: According to a pharmaceutical representative from Pfizer, when buying medication online, the safest way to purchase drugs is through a pharmacy accredited by NABP or VIPPS or Vet-VIPPS programs.

And the name or link to that Canadian place would be?
Asking for a RX written by a doc makes the whole thing useless, spend 150 on the doc to what save 30 on the RX.

We now live in a do it yourself medical world, docs and hosps are out of many peoples range.
**** of thing to need an antibiotic and know it and know that you just passed them at wally world, but the state says NO you may not have them.

So easy to buy crack, meth... but good meds no way.

There is a group of Manitoba

There is a group of Manitoba online pharmacies which are legitimate and reliable. They operate pursuant to agreements between the province and a number of US states. They will look for a valid prescription from a US physician to ship to a US state.

All members of the approved group are members of the Canadian International Pharmacy Association and a list of members can be found on their webite (www.cipa.com).

Obtaining an online prescription from a non-member will almost certainly be a waste of money given the high likelihood of its seizure upon entering the US.

Blake, do you have a

Blake, do you have a diagnosis of the cause of your high blood pressure?

Some BP meds, such as diuretics, reduce the pressure by reducing blood volume, while others operate on high cholesterol or heart arrhythmia. Take the wrong medication, and you could do more harm to yourself than the high BP is causing.

There are many natural, non-prescription diuretics ("water" pills), but even something as seemingly harmless as those can cause severe problems if one is, say, diabetic.

I wasn't suggesting that. Canadian pharmacies were mentioned and I tried to save someone a little research.

I used to frequent a little pharmacy across the border from Yuma. It was $20 for the Rx and then off to the pharmacy (owned by the doc).

You either have a real examination and history taken, or they take the Rx of a licensed US doctor.

Those which "fill orders" from patients are not members of CIPA, and while they will gladly take your money, their shipments will not make it through US Customs.
