Every single time I see the Ambien commercial, I say utloud "Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball". I thought I was the only one. Thanks for the huge laugh.

We got cheap Levodopa for my mom (PD patient) from India at a very cheap price. Sad to say, they're fake.

Ads about drugs can create misconceptions in the mind of the consumers. Drugs like Paxil are sometimes presented like it can solve all your problems but then again has a lot of side effects that are not mentioned. See for yourself at

Some advertisements of antidepressants are made light and funny in order for the consumer to remember them and also to think that its okay to take it even if only occasionally. These has been a strategy for marketing by drug companies. The side effects are not even mention, but for Paxil you can see it at http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-fda-... .

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
