Should I buy antidepressants online?
« on: 17/04/2008 11:26:20 »
Hi everyone)
I'm new on this forum and I don't know, how to decide one problem... :-\
my psychiatrist prescribed me to take Paroxetine (Paxil) over depression
and my very good friend advised to purchase it on a site which he uses a long ago and very pleased. I never bought medicine on-line, but I trust a friend. Help to settle my fears  :(
Shall I buy medications through this site - (link removed) What can you say about it in general?

Hi Miami Goa,

Welcome to the site.

I hope you do not mind but I have removed the link to the website you supplied.

Perhaps , instead of saying the link you could just quote some examples. From what I could see it just seems like an e-commerce site for drugs !

I'm not an expert but if the drugs online are EXACTLY the same in every way compared to those that have been prescribed, and are so much cheaper for you then you might want to ' go for it '.....but......I would exercise great caution !....why not ask your psychiatrist ?.......and see if you can get any other bona fide recommendations about that site from people you know !



I do wish you better.

I would be very wary of online drug suppliers. Many of them get their supplies from none-too-reputable manufacturers whose quality controls are, to say the least, somewhat dubious. Plus, of course, there is absolutely no guarantee that what you get is what it purports to be. I have seen reports of people buying tablets online at discount prices only to find that what they got were no more than aspirin or, in some cases, glucose tablets.
