I keep getting spam for no prescription online pharmacies. I dont have med. insurance and visiting the doctors costs too much $ to get a prescription. Should i trust some of those online pharmacies to get sleeping pills? Is it legal? I know nothing on this entire subject. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

It's hard to tell. I do know that the Chinese R making a killing-pun on words intended by supplying counterfeit drugs--- some drugs are out-dated and ineffective-some aren't made under sterile conditions which causes them to be mixed with other drugs-even toxins, or they are contaminated when being repackaged. Some are diluted and some are made with corn starch and questionable ingredients. I never thought that I'd see the day where the mafia looked honest. A nation that puts poison in the milk of it's own babies can't be trusted. Hospitals have even been tricked by counterfeit meds. search AMA-patient- The AMA puts out news about this. I'm on Medicare with an HMO. I'm allergic to tylenol, aspirin, Ibuprofin, advil-and I've spent over a month trying to get a pain killer for tendonitis and I'm not walking well.
My doctor keeps writing prescriptions for none or low opiod pain killers-but the FDA would rather that I take pure codiene instead of getting a lidocaine patch. I'm frustrated, my doctor is frustrated- I've found myself thinking the same thing that you are thinking-but I don't need any more ailments-So I use compresses and self-hypnotism. Also-the FDA shut down a production line-and I had to get a med from Canada-under FDA supervision-it made me sick. I wish you luck-If I end up on my own-I'm thinking of going to Mexico-where a person doesn't need scripts. I already live in a dangerous state that leads the nation for rapes, murders, assaults-and Social Security and the FDA won't help me get safe meds-- Cancun or Alcapulco sound good to me.

Hello 30bo. Even with a valid prescription, I'd not order via the web/net. If there is a problem regarding your purchase, the quality, etc that would be a problem. Its also against federal and most state laws to purchase any drug without a perscription be it "online" or not. Best of wishes,pledge

It is a federal offense to purchase medications without a prescription, that require a Drs prescription in the US, no matter if they are controlled or not. You get into even MORE trouble if you are talking about controlled substances.
They are working very hard to get these sites shut down. It is NOT worth it!!

The majority of online pharmacies are illegal. If you want to check the legitimacy of an online pharmacy you can look up the pharmacy's site at www.legitscript.com. They also have a search engine to find a patient assistance program that may be able to pay for your medication. These programs do work and they will help you fill out the paperwork if you are not able to do it yourself.
You can call your doctor and ask if (s)he will see you for free or a reduced rate. If they cannot, they may be able to recommend another doctor that will see you. Your other option is to go to your state's medical services department and they should be able to help you get into a state program or direct you to a clinic that should be able to help you.
Just to be clear, any drug in the USA that is approved by the FDA requires a prescription issued by a doctor. No pharmacy licensed in the USA can dispense a drug without a prescription from a doctor. Good luck.

I have used a few online pharmacies. I think that the scare tactics of impurity are a little overblown, even our own government is importing certain drugs now due to national shortages. You do have the issues of patient-doctor relationship which doesn't really exist when your ordering online, could potentially get you in big trouble. My feeling is that the feds wouldn't waste their time on a individual ordering small, personsal use amounts when they can go after the big wigs. All depends what you feel comfortable with, just relaying my own experiences and personal choices.

Some companies are real but not many. Actually I have same problem because I'm using Xanax and I placed an order 2 years ago on a web-site. After that dozens of people were calling my number and demanding me to buy some medication from them. This is crazy because they even call on Sundays and on vacations, but I think I've found a way how to deal with scam pharmacy calls. I got a personal agent from the pharmacy I trust and whenever somebody gives me a call I do not hang up or start yelling or anything I calmly tell them that I have an agent and there is no point in calling me again. In most cases when they hear that I'm already dealing with somebody else, they do not call again.
