Where to Buy Bulk Vitamins and Get Your Prescriptions Online
Up to 50% off prescriptions? 60% off vitamins? Ridiculous discounts on other chemist related paraphernalia? Where is this place?! Online shopping has taken off in a big way in recent years, and it’s easy to see why with convenience, competitive pricing and privacy proving draw cards for consumers.
Along with the weekly groceries and a quiet swing by eBay, people are also beginning to turn to the internet for their prescription, over-the-counter and complementary medicines.
Fantastic savings can be made purchasing your requirements through a bulk or discount chemist.
Bulk buying at the chemist not only means saving money on vitamins and medication. Chemists sell all sorts of useful items, from comfy shoes and slippers; make up bags, sporting supplements, moisturisers, make-up, cleaning supplies and confectionary.
Safe shopping what experts advise
To protect yourself, don’t purchase any medications without talking to a qualified health professional first. All medicine can potentially cause adverse effects or interact with other medicines.
With the easy availability of health information and medicine online, it can be tempting to diagnose yourself and attempt to work out which medicine you need. Your doctor can advise the most suitable medicine for your condition, how to take it safely, and even recommend a reputable online pharmacy.
If you do buy medicines online, whether you’re buying prescription, over-the-counter or complementary medicines, only use Australian websites.
Medicines purchased from overseas sites, on the other hand, are not approved by the TGA for supply in Australia and may not meet their strict safety, quality and efficacy standards.
- Require a valid Australian-issued prescription from a licensed doctor to dispense prescription medicines. Beware sites that sell medicines without a prescription, or issue one following an ‘online consultation’.
- provide an Australian street address and telephone number
- have a licensed pharmacist available to answer questions
- protect your personal information including credit card details and medical history
- Usually don’t offer revolutionary, breakthrough or miracle cures, or remedies whose effectiveness is ‘guaranteed’. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
