Online medicine shopping, anyone?

I’ve heard of people shopping online for books, CDs, DVDs, bags, clothes and even electronic equipment like cameras and computers. However, I was intrigued when an officemate told me yesterday that he buys medicines online. He said buying medicine this way has saved him heaps even after taking into account the delivery charge.

A pack of lozenges I bought last week is listed at $4.99. I got the pack on special at $4.69. My Chemist‘s website lists it at $8.69, which I suspect is the regular price.

If you’re interested to know more about buying your over-the-counter and even prescription medicines online, check out, Pharmacy Direct website. Do some comparison shopping first before deciding to get your medicine this way. Also, google for other online chemists, I’ve found at least 2 other websites that offer this service. Also, it might be a good idea to buy in bulk and place an order with other members of the family or friends.
