5 Reasons for Choosing an Online Pharmacy

If you’ve never considered ordering your prescriptions online, these benefits are worth a closer look.


Lots of people are discovering the benefits of choosing an online pharmacy for their prescription drug needs. Perhaps you are one of them, but you’re hesitant since you’ve always gotten your medicines the traditional way, from a local pharmacy. The option to order medicine that is conveniently shipped, is a safe product and is available at a lower price is very appealing to a lot of people that take medicine.


Below are 5 of the benefits of ordering prescriptions online that you should consider when deciding if it might be the right choice for you:

  1. The convenience of having your medicine delivered right to your door.
    For anyone that is disabled or homebound, lives in a rural area where there is no pharmacy close by or is just very busy, the ease of having your medication come to you ends the challenges of having to get help with transportation or spend time and money driving to the pharmacy.

  2. Cost-savings on medicines you need.
    An online pharmacy doesn’t have the same overhead costs and expenses that you’ll find at your local pharmacy. This allows them to pass the savings on to you. Which means you spend less on costly medicines. If you choose wisely, your online pharmacy will deliver the same quality, FDA-approved medicine as the local pharmacy for much less. You’ll also save money getting to the local pharmacy in both the time spent travelling and the transportation costs. That adds up. Why not order from the comfort of home?
  3. No more waiting in line.
    Skipping the traditional pharmacy and choosing to buy online eliminates having to go to the pharmacy and wait in long lines. This not only saves you time driving and waiting, but it keeps you away from the coughing, sneezing and other illnesses that bring people to the pharmacy line.
  4. A pharmacy care team that’s there when you need them.
    Local pharmacies often keep business hours, making it harder for people to get there when it is convenient for them. An online pharmacy you can depend on will have extended hours for both the customer care team and for a pharmacist that you can talk to about questions or concerns you may have with your medicines.
  5. It’s completely safe, if you choose wisely.
    Some consumers worry about the safety of ordering medicines online. The good news is that buying prescriptions online is safe, if you know how to find a trustworthy online pharmacy. Always buy from an online pharmacy that only sells FDA-approved medication and is licensed and accredited in the United States. Also, be sure the pharmacy requires a prescription before they ship medication to you.

If the benefits outlined above appeal to you, it might be time to consider ordering your prescriptions online. Be sure to do your homework and find a pharmacy you can trust to do the job with the important medicines you need. Not all online pharmacies are the same. But, when you find a reputable one you can expect to save money and time, enjoy the convenience, and receive the same safe, high-quality medicines you expect.


Brand name medicines to generics… great option that will save you money!


Being an informed healthcare consumer includes doing your homework when it comes to making decisions about the medicines you take. You want to ensure the medicines are safe and that you are getting the best price.


More people are choosing generic medicines to fill their prescriptions than ever before. They are finding the benefits of generics make them an excellent choice for many of the medicines they commonly take.


A generic drug is the same as a brand-name drug in many ways, including:

  • dosage
  • safety
  • strength
  • quality
  • the way it works
  • the way it is taken
  • the way it should be used


Generic drugs that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are just as safe as brand-name drugs.

The FDA says that all drugs must work well and be safe before they approved for consumers to use. Generic drugs use the same active ingredients as brand-name drugs and work the same way, so they have the same risks and benefits as the brand-name drugs. They are also manufactured at the same high-standard factories as brand-name drugs. Always be sure that the generic drugs you select are FDA-approved.


Generic drugs are less expensive and can save you quite a bit of money.


When new drugs are first made, they have drug patents. Most drug patents are protected for 17 years. The patent protects the company that made the drug first. The patent does not allow anyone else to make and sell the drug. When the patent expires, other drug companies can start selling the generic version of the drug, once it is approved by the FDA.


Creating a drug costs a lot of money. Since generic drug makers do not develop a drug from scratch, the costs to bring the drug to market are less. This allows consumers to benefit with lower prices on many of the medicines they need.


According to the FDA, “Generic drugs have exactly the same active ingredients and effects as brand-name drugs, but they can cost as much as 30 percent to 80 percent less”.


Still, there are some people who doubt generics because they think that anything that costs more must be better. But it is important to remember that the reason generic drug manufacturers can sell the drugs for less is not because the quality is lower.


Although brand-name drugs and generic drugs have the same active ingredients, sometimes they look different.


In the United States, trademark laws do not allow generic drugs to look exactly like the brand-name drug. However, the generic drug must have the same active ingredients. Colors, flavors, and certain other parts may be different. But these things do not affect the way the drug works.


Not every brand-name drug has a generic drug option.


Although generic versions are not available for all medications, there are ways to find out if there is a generic version of a brand-name drug that you and your health care provider can consider.


  • Ask the prescribing healthcare provider or a pharmacist
  • Search for the drug using the FDA’s Drugs@FDATrusted Source system. Search for the brand-name drug first.
  • Search for the drug using the online version of the Orange Book. Search for the brand-name drug first.
  • Check the FDA’s list of first-time generic drug approvalsTrusted Source. This is where people can find first generics, the first time the drug gets FDA approval.


For more information when deciding if generics are right for you, contact your primary care provider, a pharmacist, or another of your healthcare partners for help.
