The ABC 20/20 Report—Not All Online Pharmacies Are Rogue

P

An ABC 20/20 report recently came out and it comprehensively covered the safety of online purchasing mechanisms. It also featured how Big Pharma had joined forces with ASOP, LegitScript, and NABP to let the public know that almost all of the prescription purchases made online were completely unsafe. However, the evidence reveals something else completely. Here are a few things that you should know about:

There Are Many Existing Legitimate Online Pharmacies

While rogues are in existence, this does not mean that there are no legitimate online pharmacies. There was a study carried out by the National Bureau of Economic Research, and this study supported that there are many legitimate online pharmacies around. However, knowing that rogue online pharmacies exist as well, people need to be careful. And here are a few ways in which they can take precautionary methods:

  1. Never purchase from an online pharmacy that does not ask regarding the drugs you are using or your personal health history
  2. Never purchase from an online pharmacy not having a telephone number or physical location
  3. Never purchase from an online pharmacy not requiring a valid prescription
  4. Never purchase from an online pharmacy not licensed by government or provincial licensing body

The CIPA website will be able to verify online pharmacies for you so you can always check there to be sure.

Unknown Impurities, Active Ingredients, and Inactive Ingredients

It is still yet to be determined who verified the reports stating that the unknown impurities that were tested were actually harmful. It is also not yet known what these unknown impurities were that were found in the analysis in the 20/20 report.

All medications consist of two components, i.e. active ingredients and inactive ingredients. The active ingredients are what make the medication perform up to its expectations. Inactive ingredients, on the other hand, are binders, colorants, or fillers and are completely inert in nature. Different companies offering the same drug will have the same active ingredients but their inactive ingredients can differ at times. Big Pharma has taken this knowledge and used it to its advantage.

However, people should know that legitimate, affordable, and safe medications are available through online means from properly licensed and verified Canadian Pharmacies.

ObamaCare and CIPA Canadian Pharmacies

Filed under: Online Pharmacy News — Tags: , , @ 10:41 pm

obamacare-cipa-canadian-pharmaciesMedications that are necessary have always been expensive and it seems that the onset of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare, is going to make that a reality for many Americans. The act states that out of pocket expenses, deductibles, and co-pays for Americans healthcare costs will be capped at $6,350.00 for most families.

This is discerning news to those who struggle with chronic conditions and require prescription medications on an ongoing basis. Moreover, many patients in the US may find that their prescriptions are becoming more expensive, are harder to find, or are not covered by their healthcare plan at all.

Online Pharmacies: How they can help you

Even with ObamaCare, there is a solution available to families who are struggling to meet their expenses for vital pharmaceuticals: online Canadian pharmacies. These pharmacies are an affordable way for Americans to purchase prescription medications at very low prices – up to 80% less than the American pharmaceutical prices.

More than 21% of Americans go without their medications because they cannot afford them. Tod Cooperman, the president of PharmacyChecker.com states that, “As more Americans access health care under the new programs, more prescriptions will be generated and the amount of unfilled prescriptions may further increase as people find the brand name drugs unaffordable in the U.S.” For just a common medication the cost can run upwards of $1000.00 annually. Accordingly, Cooperman also stated that “It is a ridiculous situation, but the only way many Americans can get affordable prices on brand-name American drugs is to buy them outside the country.”

CIPA Online Pharmacies

Online pharmacies, like Can Drug Store, provide an easy, convenient, and affordable way for US consumers to purchase prescription medications, but it is important to find out if they are a reputable organization that is CIPA certified. CIPA is the Canadian International Pharmacy Association through which online Canadian pharmacy becomes certified as a legitimate and safe pharmacy. All CIPA associated pharmaceutical companies adhere to the highest of standards, and they all have more than a decade of impeccable safety standards.

Can Drug Store is a CIPA certified pharmacy that can help US citizens purchase affordable prescription medications.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Antibiotics and the Impact To You

 

Antibiotic resistance - online pharmaciesIndividuals are becoming increasingly more resistant to antibiotics as the years pass, and while researchers are racing against the clock to find a cure to antibiotic resistance, nothing has been presented. In fact, there hasn’t been a new ‘class’ of antibiotics invented since the 1980s.

Here are 5 things that you ought to know about antibiotics and your health:

  1. The World Health Organization claims that tuberculosis antibiotic resistance is responsible for over 150,000 deaths every year.
  2. They World Health Organization has also stated that as a result of antibiotic resistance, in the future ‘many common infections will no longer have a cure and, once again, could kill unabated.’
  3. Many of us go straight to antibiotics when fighting the flu or other common illnesses, but antibiotics are also crucial during surgery, cancer treatment, and organ transplants. Think of the devastation that comes with widespread antibiotic resistance. It’s horrifying, don’t you think?
  4. Sir Alexander Fleming, who is largely credited with making the greatest contribution to the discovery of antibiotics, forewarned the dilemma of antibiotic resistance. He stated in his Nobel Prize winners’ lecture that ‘it is not difficult to make microbes resistant to penicillin’.
  5. On the bright side, Dr. Martha Clokie, who is a microbiologist at the University of Leicester, is optimistic about the development of a virus alternative to antibiotics to help fight common bacterial infections such as gonorrhea and e.coli.

What does this all mean for you? Well, only take antibiotics when they are specifically prescribed for your condition. You can also refuse to take antibiotics for a cold or flu, as they are actually ineffective against viral infections and only promote antibiotic resistance.

Researchers will attempt to develop a new form of antibiotics to help overcome this epidemic of antibiotic resistance. Of course, with a new form of antibiotics introduced to the public, can also mean a new form of costly medication.

To ensure that you protect yourself and your loved ones from the rising cost of prescriptions, such as new forms of antibiotics in the future, make sure that you protect you and your loved ones from the rising costs of prescription medications. We commonly see websites ending with the domains .com, .org, or even , .net, but by the end of this year there will be new domains introduced, including .pharmacy.

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) is bidding to control the .pharmacy domain.  This could have a significant impact on US citizens who purchase online prescriptions from online Canadian pharmacies. The bottom line is that if NABP’s bid is successful, you will be banned from purchasing the prescriptions that you need from online Canadian pharmacies, and will be forced to pay double or even triple the  amount for prescription drugs.

Sign the RxRights’ petition to stop the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) bid to control the .pharmacy domain at the following link: http://cqrcengage.com/rxrights/. Share the link with your family and friends to get them to sign the petition too.

Restrictions to Your Access to Online Prescriptions

Can Drug StoreHow would you like it if your access to safe prescription drugs from online Canadian pharmacies was shut down? You probably would not be happy. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) is threatening to ban your access to online pharmacies.

How are they attempting to do this? Well, when we search the web and go on many websites, they all end with the domain .com, .org, and sometimes .net. NABP is bidding to purchase the domain where a website would end with .pharmacy. If NABP takes control of .pharmacy, they will block your access to affordable online prescriptions like Viagra, Lipitor, Cialis, Lipitor, Wellbutrin XL, Nexium, Crestor, and more. Along with blocking your access to affordable medication, they will increase the prices on prescriptions by doubling or even tripling the price.

You can take action and help to stop them by signing RxRight’s petition on this link: http://cqrcengage.com/rxrights/. Sign the petition and share the link with your friends and family to sign. Stop NABP from taking away your rights to affordable prescription drugs.

If you have any questions, please call RxRights at 1-866-703-5442 or visit RxRights.org for more information.
