I couldn't believe when I read that meds such as valium, ativan, vicodin and ultram could be purchased online. I checked out some of the sites and was astounded! I know the situation some people are in, feeling they have no choice, they can't get their docs to prescribe for them...I may consider the same if I had to, but fortunately I have docs who do prescribe what I need, including pain med.
The prices they charge are outrageous! Sounds like you're paying a price to get the drug off the street. I take the pain med Ultram, which costs about $1.00 a pill for the BrandName, less for generic. Most online pharmacies charge from 3 to 5 times its retail cost.!
I suppose you'd consider you're paying more for "online physician consultation", but who's to say who is really authorizing the requests?
