Online Drugs: The Wave Of The Future

Apr 10, 2008
It doesn't matter who you are, where you are or what you do for a living, at some point in time you're going to end up standing in line for hours at a pharmacy waiting for your prescription. It's inevitable. Everyone gets sick at some point or another, which means that everyone is going to need a medication at some point or another. Even if you are blessed with perfect health, chances are your children and other relatives aren't so lucky, which brings you full circle.

Even if you happen to be blessed with an efficient pharmacy (yes, those do exist in some places) there are other hazards. Your particular drug may be out of stock, forcing you to wait days or even weeks for it to be ordered. The pharmacy may have trouble contacting a doctor's office or insurance company to get the authorizations needed to fill a prescription. There is no end to the potential complications you're going to face by walking down to your corner drugstore.

The question is, what can you do about it? After all, you're not a pharmacist. They've got you by the short hairs because you don't have another choice. You have to have your medication, and you have to go to a pharmacy to get it.

What if you did have another choice? With the widespread use of the Internet has come the birth of a new trend: Online pharmacies, and with them the purchase of online drugs. With an online pharmacy you can get your prescription filled and mailed to you without having to sit and wait for hours, and with the wide assortment of online pharmacies currently in operation there's guaranteed to be one who has your drug in stock. Getting a prescription filled is as simple as taking five minutes to click on another link.

Online pharmacies are staffed by highly qualified pharmacists, many of which operate Mom and Pop businesses of their own that allow them plenty of time to meet the needs of their online customers. The primary concern for many when it comes to the purchase of online drugs is that they're going to be dealing with a black market dealer somewhere who is uncertified and lacks the education and experience they need to do their job, and the fact that there are real pharmacists out there working for these online drug retailers comes as a surprise.

Of course, these independent contractors aren't the only available options for online drugs. Surprisingly, many of the biggest names in pharmaceuticals operate a branch online (CVS and Eckerds, to name a few). The fact that there is a trusted business standing behind their products is enough to promote confidence and encourage customers to turn away from the hassle and expense of the neighborhood pharmacy and take advantage of the ease and convenience of buying online drugs.

The bottom line is that the online pharmacy has made purchasing drugs easier (and in many cases, cheaper) than ever before. Finding certified, trusted retailers of online drugs is as simple as going out on the net, performing a search for online pharmacies and looking for the VIPPS certification. Sites with this symbol have been certified as a Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Site by the National Association Boards of Pharmacy and are a legitimate, safe place to buy your prescription.
