There is a lot of scary information in the media about buying prescription drugs from websites. These stories alone are enough to shale anyone's confidence on shopping medications online. But actually, buying your drugs online has just the same risks as buying them from your local drugstore or pharmacy. In fact, there are advantages to buying your medications online over the corner drugstore.
Less Chance Of Human Error
Did you know that pharmacy workers do not have to report their errors to either their superiors or the government? These errors can range from dosing errors, errors in billing, perhaps giving the wrong medicine, to giving the right medicine to the wrong patient. If you have a high school diploma and no police record, you can get a job as a pharmacy technician.
Online pharmacies take their orders by computer, which means less chance of misinterpreting handwriting or filling an order wrong. Computers don’t get tired and don’t have their minds on something else other than their jobs.
It Works For Pets – Why Not People?
Pets are notorious for having very rare illnesses that no other pet in the area has. Most veterinarians can't afford to stock up on medicines for all kinds of medical situations, so they often have to specially order these medications from the factory. Then, the pet owner would have to pick up the medicines at the veterinarians. This takes a lot of time – time the pet may not have.
With the rise of the Internet came the idea of letting the pet owners buy the medicines directly and having it shipped directly to their home – or to their vet's office, whichever they preferred. All they needed was a method of payment and a prescription from their vet. This has saved the lives of untold thousands of pets every year. And now this idea has been transformed for human medications.
Things To Look For
Never click on a link from a spam email claiming that they have great prices on quality drugs. This is usually a scam. Besides, it's much safer to search for the online pharmacy yourself. Quality online pharmacies have certain characteristics that you need to look for. These include:
• It will not send you any medication without your doctor's prescription, which can be mailed or faxed.
• It will have a means for you to make a secure online account
• See if the online pharmacy is certified with VIPPS (Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites). Reputable online pharmacies have a VIPPS logo which serves as a direct link to the VIPPS website so you can quickly check things out for yourself.
So, if you use your common sense, then you can have confidence in using an online pharmacy as your source for prescription medication.
Is it possible to leave a hospital with worse health than when it admitted you? Unfortunately, it can happen. In theory, hospitals should be clean as a bean. However, that is not always the case.
