Online Prescription Medications Offer Convenience and Savings
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that is responsible for ensuring the safety of medications (among other responsibilities). In other words, the FDA is the watchdog that looks our for our health. The FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research regulates prescription medications and over-the counter drugs. To gain FDA approval for a medication drug companies must test the drug first in the laboratory and then on humans. After testing the medication, the company applies to the FDA for approval. If FDA physicians and scientists find that the drug's benefits outweigh its known risks and that the company can manufacture a consistently high-quality product, the FDA approves the drug for marketing and use in the United States.
The growth of online pharmacies has changed the way consumers shop for their prescription drugs. The FDA recommends that people look for an online pharmacy that is located in the United States and licensed by the board of pharmacy in the state in which the website operates. The FDA also suggests that consumers choose online sources of prescription medications that have a licensed pharmacist to answer questions, require a prescription, and have privacy and security policies that are easy to find online and are easy to understand.
Reputable online pharmacies make it easy to buy prescription drugs at prices that may be lower than retail stores. This is particularly valuable for people who do not have easy access to traditional pharmacies because of illness, age, or disability or because of where they live. Online pharmacies give people the opportunity to talk to pharmacists and get their questions answered without leaving their homes. For people who take prescription medications on an ongoing basis, automatic renewal through online pharmacies ensure that they always have a supply and do not run out. These are just some of the many good reasons to buy FDA-approved medications online.
