e-pharmacies are really Pharmeasy

My experience with e-pharmacies

We buy medicines worth Rs.9000 every month Usually the Pharmacies do not have ready stock of specialised drugs like Ryzodeg (Insulin) and Zelaton (drops for glaucoma) which are dispensed in cold pack They are costly products Except these all our medicines we get delivered by courier I buy from Netmeds They don't have physical outlet where I can pick up the drugs which come in cold pack Med plus has many retail points from where you can pick up these specialized drugs with online orders ! With 20% savings (around Rs 1950)

No doubt online shopping has made life convenient for many people especially senior citizens but I would suggest to kindly verify the following .This applies to Medicines as well as Groceries
  1. Expiry Date of the products - They may be before the expiry date but if it is close to expiry date then better be careful not to buy too much quantities
  2. Quality of packing - this especially if the product needs to be stored in a cold storage
  3. Bogus Products - There is lot of counterfeit products imitating proper Brands and kindly check them .

So just verify the products after purchase and preserve the bills

added to the general risks it is better to buy only medicines which does not demand cold storage . any online purchase is associated with many risks as much as they are convenient. Big basket the online grocery store does not have a shop location but a pooling center to wich they gather A to Z and send off from there probaly like amazon and flipkart

Now even the drugs that need cold storage are delivered in special ice pack - Ryzodeg was home delivered in these ice pack Now my Ryzodeg is home delivered and don't go to any collecting Pharmacy for online order!
