TomBAvoider Posted June 13, 2019 Report Share Posted June 13, 2019 I was wondering what online pharmacies folks are using to buy medication that is not a "controlled", i.e. I'm not taking about scheduled pain medications, or medications that can rebound to general population harm, such as antibiotics. I'm talking ordinary FDA approved medications such as acarbose or bog standard generic statins and the like. I wonder if there exist ones which are reputable in that they will actually send you the actual medication, and not some poorly made counterfeit - and the crucial requirement is that they won't make you jump through hoops with requiring prescriptions from your current physician. For example, they might have online consultation with a physician for a prescription - that is fine and expected - as long as they send you the thing you want, no further questions asked. I'm located in California, U.S. I'm not interested in breaking the law, or buying from pharmacies located in dodgy locations worldwide. I'd like something that is reputable and legal, even if somewhat costly. I'd like to be responsible for my own care, and not have to convince my PCP that I need this or that. I suppose I could engage in extensive doctor shopping, but I thought maybe there's a simpler way, because I'm not asking for any controlled medications, just very standard ones. Of course, if this is impossible, I guess I'll have to start the laborious process of finding a reasonable physician. My current one is a good guy, but extremely by the book and frankly somewhat behind the times - can't convince him of anything new past his medical school years, I can't even get him to adjust the dose on a medication I'm already taking! For example, I already take metformin and atorvastatin (insurance pays for it), but I'd like a dose adjustment and can't get it, so I'd rather buy it myself and pay for it. You can send me a private message if you wish. TIA! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
