Why you should not trust your pharmacist?

There are several reasons Why you should not trust your pharmacist! The main reason is he is under control of the big pharma, but read the full blog article and decide for yourself if you can still trust your local pharmacy and pharmacist.

Big Pharma

Yes this cruel group of companies and lobby groups are the main and most important reason you can’t trust your pharmacist. Of course you can trust him in the respect he will not steal anything directly from you and he will not kill you, however he will steal “indirectly” from you by selling you overpriced drugs, controlled and marketed by the big pharma. For every expensive brand-name drugs your pharmacist will get a bonus on top of the high margins and if he reaches a certain level he will be invited to exclusive getaways together with his or her partner.

Of course your local pharmacist will feel good about this, simply because he thinks he deserves it and his specialized knowledge is needed in society. Of course for some medicines this is true, but for mainstream prescription drugs like Viagra, Cialis, Ventolin his expert opionion is not needed at all, but he still tries to sell you over prices drugs like Viagra Brand for 25 usd per tablet. Fortunately you can buy affordable drugs at our online pharmacy. But there are more reasons why you can’ trust your local pharmacist…

Generic Drugs vs Brand Drugs

While everyone knows there is no difference in quality and functionality between generic drugs and brand drugs, however still the majority of pharmacists around the world try to sell and prescribe brand drugs instead of the cheaper generic drugs. We think this is an absolute shame, as with rising health costs it is a duty of every individual involved in healthcare to bring down the costs and generic drugs to exactly this as you don’t pay for the “logo” any longer, but just for the medicine.

LOCAL PHARMACY VS ONLINE PHARMACY

While you local pharmacy is interested in sponsoring the big pharma and selling you expensive brand drugs as we have seen above, there is another way your pharmacist will try to overprice his services. While an efficient online pharmacy as ours is having a small office, efficient warehouse from where we serve the globe, you local pharmacist has to pay employees, his pharmacy and his huge salary and you will be the one who pays this indirectly with high drug prices. If he would offer your excellent service than you might think it is worth it, however research showed 65% of patients is unhappy with their local pharmacy ( pharmacist ). Compare the prices and service of you local pharmacy with our online pharmacy and see how much you can save and how comfortable online shopping is, no only for consumer products on Ebay or Amazon but also for medicines and supplements at Pharmacy XL.

Generic Drugs

As we promised in a previous blog post, we would dedicate a full article about Generic Drugs as always get lots of questions from existing and new customers about this and we have to say yes indeed sometimes “generic drugs” can make it confusing, because the big pharma makes it that way. However after you read this article you will be fully informed and aware of the many advantages generic drugs have over brand-name drugs.

What are Generic Drugs?

Generic Drugs are drugs/medicines/pills like any other but not produced under a brand-name but under a generic-name. Normally the active ingredient. Other pharmaceutical companies are allowed after the patent of the brand name drug expires also to produce and market the medication. They are only not allowed to use the “brand-name” of course. So for example with the widely popular drug “Viagra” other generic viagra are marketing these as “Sildenafil Tablets” or other generic names like Suhagra, Silagra, Kamagra, Eriacta etc… They are all generic viagras and the same is valid for “Cialis“. With other drugs like the popular asthma drug the brand version “Ventolin” they market the generic ventolin as “Albuterol Sulfate” the active ingredient.

Why to use Generic Drugs?

Well simply because they are cheaper and work exactly the same, have the same active ingredient and are from the same quality and same quality pharmaceutical producer, so there is really no difference! The fact at our online pharmacy we sell both Brand-Name drugs as well as Generic Drugs is simply because some customers prefer brand drugs and we always put the customer first. It is the same with clothes, some people prefer branded clothes like Polo Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein while they are no different than less known fashion brands. The distinct advantage from generic drugs over branded drugs is the fact they also available in less strong and stronger versions!

Can you always use Generic Drugs?

Yes you can! There are no other side effects from generic drugs than brand-name drugs, as they use the same active ingredients and chemical compositions.

Why the big pharma is against?

Well money is money and the big pharma earns a lot of money selling their brand-name drugs for too high prices! It is not for nothing many consumers and human right groups are fighting against the high drug prices around the world! We as a non-profit pharmacy support all these actions, but the better solution is simply by online shopping and compare prices for drugs and if they are cheaper at our online drugstore than your local pharmacy, buy them online and you will not regret! Pharmacy XL has a huge choice of generic drugs for rock bottom low prices and with free shipping and it is not for nothing than some clients even call us the “Generic Pharmacy”.
