Ok, I know this may get all manner of slings and arrows directed at me, but I’d like to know if anyone has had any good experiences ordering prescription drugs from a non-US source. We all get bombarded online with online pharmacy spam but I have no faith that any of those are legit.
Reason: I have very severe migraines. Imitrex, etc. do nothing for me. I’ve tried 'em all. These migraines run in the family, and a bad one can result in a combination of 14 hours of incredible head pain (think your worst hangover at its worst and double that) combined with about the same amount of time of throwing up. The only med that has ever been effective in dulling the pain has been Fiorinal with Codeine (and Vicodin/Hydrocodone, but my script has always been Fiorinal.)
Now, for me that’s a pretty mild drug - I’ve taken both Vicodin (herniated disc) and Fiorinal when I wasn’t in pain, and I get more buzz from a few cups of coffee than I do from the pills. But I know, of course, they are controlled.
So - situation: when I left Chicago about a year ago, my doc gave me a pretty good sized prescription for Fiorinal, since I didn’t know when I’d hook up with another doctor in KC. It was about 2 years worth. And like an idiot, I put it in my bathroom bag when I went to Taiwan, and when they opened it up, they asked me if I had a prescription on me, I said no, you can see the information on the bottle, etc. and they basically ripped them off. About 3/4 of the bottle full. They gave me forms to fill out, etc. but of course I never got them back. A total rip-off, never happened before.
So - I am in KC, going to the doctor I have moved to here in our suburb, try to get a refill, tell him my story, he looks at my records, etc. and tells me he really can’t give me a new prescription based on the size of my last one and how soon it was. Went to a second doctor, same general story. I had the form they gave me from Taiwan (which was pretty worthless, to be fair) and still, nope.
So I’m without the Fiorinal, probably can’t get a prescription for another 6 months, and had a migraine last week. Pure torture.
So I thought, OK, I know I had a friend who purchased “legit” vicodin for his back when he was in Mexico at about half price and it was the real thing. Is there some way to do this online.
Going online - lots of places that look shady. Some that look not so shady (though one only too personal checks and money orders, no credit cards - danger danger dive! Dive!) But no way to know who might sell the real thing, who might send you sugar pills, who is just a front to take your cc info. I imagine the illegitimate outnumber the legitimate by some large number.
So -while the odds are slim, nothing to lose: anyone here ever purchase and were happy with their purchase of prescription drugs online from an offshore source?
