Buying Pills Online – Is It Really Safe?

As we become more comfortable with technology and our habits increasingly involve the use of online shopping, it is no surprise that the purchasing of prescription meds and supplements online is also on the rise.

But with this comes a host of potential problems which can be avoided with proper knowledge and diligent decision making.

Check for Pharmacy registration and affiliation

The number 1 thing to keep in mind is to stay away from unregistered pharmacies. Just like you wouldn’t trust just any chemist to make your meds, you wouldn’t try out a doctor without proper medical training and degree, why would you wanna buy your pills from a shady unregistered online pharmacy?

Many people end up going to unreliable sources especially if they are looking for a cheaper deal. It is not worth the possible problems you will face if you get bogus medication. 

Patients looking for medications for testosterone boosting, erectile dysfunctions, premature ejaculations or viagra often end up one these sites promising great deals with discounts and claiming massive results in no-time. If it isn’t a registered product with proper backing, do not even try it.

There is no way for you to find out if the medicine is a total fake, a dilute, a copy or just expired.

When it comes to the UK, you can quite easily check out the affiliation and any banners/labels the website is displaying. There are independent bodies such as the General Pharmaceutical council as well as governmental bodies such as Medicines and Healthcare Products regulatory agencies

You can verify whether your online clinic is registered with any of these governing and regulating bodies to make sure you are consulting and purchasing from a legit store.


It goes without saying that for prescription-only meds, you will require the written prescription or the Electronic prescription service (EPS) from your health care provider. For non-prescription meds, your best bet is to still check for authenticity and don’t just believe the ads.


While there are counterfeiters or simple scams operating, the good news there are legit services launching that people can trust as well as verify. You can get not just the medicine but one-stop-shop solutions online now, where you can get consultation and advice as well as prescriptions and ordering of medicines online. Check out for all men’s health-related issues, including but not limited to sexual as well as mental health.


Despite your curiosity, your best bet is to lay off of self-diagnosis and researching your symptoms randomly on the web. This is a recipe for disaster which usually ends up in depression if not self-medication, which is prone to all kinds of problems.

Trust a legit medical consultant and take proper professional help, especially now that it is readily and easily available. No need to self diagnose and go for cheap unregistered sources when top-quality help is available with discreet as well as professional services.
