Here’s how to sidestep rogue pharmacy sites (and there are thousands) that can put your health and personal information at risk:
Do shop at sites that require a provider’s prescription.
Don’t if prescriptions are filled by completing a questionnaire only.
Do shop at sites recommended by your insurance company or ending in .pharmacy. Only law-abiding pharmacies can use that domain.
Don’t if there is no phone number or physical street address listed.
Do shop at sites with licensed pharmacists available for consultation.
