Buying Prescription Meds Online
Judy takes Proin for incontinence and is going to start on Soloxine for Hypo Thyroid. I have been paying around $22 for a bottle of 60 Proin and the vet said the Soloxine would be $22.75 for 60 pills, but once we figure out the right dose she can order a larger bottle at a discount.
I looked on line to see if I could get this any cheaper and was amazed to find the Proin is only $8 for 60 25 mg or $12 for 60 50mg (I can't remember Judy's dose). Either way I have been paying double the price for about a year. Then I looked up the Soloxine and it is only $5.40. FOUR times less than what the vet wanted to charge me.
When I told the vet that I wanted to order them online she said that several of her clients had problems with medication that were ordered on line and she did not recommend this. Specifically meds ordered from Pet meds and similiar websites. The prices listed above are from Dr. Foster and Smith, which I would think would be pretty safe.
I like this vet, but I have always thought her prices were a little high. She has always been great with my dogs and is only a mile from house so I have continued to go there. I don't think she is just trying to get more money from me, but I can't believe that the prices really are this different for the same product.
So my question is how many of you order your meds online and which websites do you recommend ordering from or not ordering from? Has anyone had any bad experiences with ordering medications online?
