Beneficial Advice on How to Find a Good Online Pharmacy

I asked a few questions to Mr. McPherson, the Vice President and General Manager of a company which is a worldwide How To Keep Body Healthy And Fit network of pharmacies, distributors, wholesalers and manufacturers. He also has his own online pharmacy.
1) Question- What are things a person should look for in an online pharmacy?
Answer- First and foremost, verify the pharmacy’s license. The license number should be posted on the website for all to see along with the Board of Pharmacy for that particular area. For example, our pharmacy license number is 1712 and the licensing Importance Of Health Management body is the Alberta College of Pharmacists. One would simply call the College and ask to verify the number as current and in good standing. This is the consumer’s guarantee that the pharmacy is legitimate and is inspected on a regular basis.
In some cases an overseas pharmaceutical company is manufacturing for the U.S. market. In this instance our own FDA must inspect this facility every two years. This fact should be listed on the website; that the facility has been FDA inspected and approved.
Never buy from a pharmacy that does not require a prescription. A physician needs to be monitoring your medications.
Lastly, make sure you can consult with a pharmacist on staff if needed. If there is only space for an e-mail question and no person to talk to, run don’t walk to another pharmacy.
2) Question- How should a person shelve their prescription medicines to keep maximum potency until the medicine expires? (example, keep in closed container out of sun etc.)
Answer- Just about all containers now have these instructions printed on them. Follow the directions.
3) Question- Any advice you can give people about prescription medicines they might not know about?
Answer- Yes, and I’m glad you asked this question. Be an educated consumer. Know why a drug is being prescribed. Be aware of its side effects. How you should take the medication. What other food or drugs may interact with the drug you are taking. How can I do that you may ask? Get a copy of the “PDR Pocket Guide to Prescription Drugs” or “The Pill Book”. They are available in stores all over the country. The cost is very minimal. I believe I paid $5.95 for my pocket PDR. Amazon, I’m sure, has used copies for a couple dollars.
