    Would appreciate some recommendations for online pharamcies or other options for individuals who can purchase prescription drugs for prices less than the local drugstore.

    Just be diligent: http://chronicfatigue.about.com/od/treatments/a/internet_drugs.htm

    Good things to pay attention to:

    • there is no way to contact the Web pharmacy by phone.
    • there is no physical address given for the pharmacy – only a post office box or no address at all.
    • prices are dramatically lower than the competition.
    • no prescription from your doctor is required.
    • they offer an online “consultation” (usually in the form of a questionnaire) after which they will “prescribe” and send you one or more drugs.
    • their sales pitch sounds too good to be true (i.e., promising “miracle” cures, offering fast and easy prescription drugs with no doctor needed)

    Several of my clients have used CrossBorder & Isrameds for years, no problems. I never recommend something like this unless I have first hand knowledge, or from a reliable source.

    I know I have a client who buys online all the time and raves about it. I put in a call to him to see which site he uses.

    My 82 year old mother won't take Part D because she gets all her BP meds from Israel and she says they are cheaper than anywhere she can find in Florida.

    Is the quality good? I don't know... but she can kick my butt!
