I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://x-generic.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Do these drugs help you to live longer? I don't think so; not when you consider that they can harm other internal organs or create other problems you wouldn't have had before taking some of these drugs. Not all are bad, and some have saved lives. There are a few that I can't avoid taking, but as for prescription drugs for high triglycerides and bad LDLs; I'm remaining cautious. I hope one day they can invent something without all of the terrible side effects. Just the same, I've been reading that high cholesterol isn't all that bad. Could be true, since not everyone with this condition has went on to have a stroke or heart attack. Obviously if you're overweight and don't exercise, the combination of both, in addition to high triglycerides, is not healthy. I'm not a medical expert, but I'm not going to take a drug for this until I am satisfied I've learned everything I can about cholesterol meds. I do not one to trade one problem for another. I realize there is blood testing for Liver problems, etc. I know someone who has been on Lipitor for years. Her tests came out normal, until a few months ago. Now all of a sudden, her liver is not normal. Now what? Can the condition be cured or reversed? I don't know, but the liver is a vital organ we can't live without.
