I have little experience in ordering drugs on-line. Since I has no insurance, he would like to understand the criteria that informs good choices in ordering on-line. For instance, the price of Ambien on line is about 1/2 what I am paying at the pharmacy. The on line community seems to be populated with a mixture of legitimate, semi-legitimate, and illegitimate sources. Swim ordered some Ambien and some valium from what appeared to be an on-line doctor. Personal and medical information were taken and transmitted. When swim received the product, it had been sent from Thailand and I has questions about the potency and compounding of drugs from the far east. I am emailed constantly by on-line drug stores in regards to ordering perscription drugs. Many of these sources from Google tell swim that it is not illegal to order Lortab, Ambien and such if one does not exceed quantity parameters. I am confused about this issue. The experienced members of this site can hopefully clarify swim's confusion.
