10 Tips for Buying Cheap Drugs Online

Everyone wants to save money, and the good news is that purchasing medicine online is both easy and affordable. This is because online pharmacies have a much lower overhead expenses.. The US Pharmacopeia (USP) has joined forces with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) together with the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) has established quality control standards for all medications dispensed by pharmacies throughout United States. Their intention is to prevent consumers from receiving poor quality and/or harmful medicines from online pharmacies.

US Pharmacopeia (USP), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Association of Boards of Pharmacy offer these ten tips to consumers who are thinking of buying health products online:

1. Do not purchase from an illegal website. This means putting yourself at risk. The danger of you being able to purchase contaminated or counterfeit product is there, aside from the fact that you may also be given the wrong product, an incorrect dose or worse yet, you could not receive any product at all since most illegal web sites do not maintain longevity.

2. Purchasing an unsafe or inappropriate medication may put you at risk or cause serious health consequences.

3. Obtain prescriptions from your doctor before purchasing drugs online. Moreover, it is not a good idea to purchase a prescription drug online without seeing first your doctor even if you fill out a health-probing questionnaire. The questionnaire does not provide sufficient information that would enable a doctor to determine if that drug is safe for you to use, if another treatment is more appropriate, or if you have an underlying medical condition which could be negatively affected by the drug you are about to purchase.

4. Always try to consult a doctor before using any medication for the first time. This way you can thwart any negative side-effects that the medicine might cause you.

5. Avoid sites that offer to prescribe a prescription drug for the first time without a physical exam, sell a prescription drug without a prescription, or sell drugs that are not approved by Food and Drug Administration. Taking drugs without any physical check up can be harmful to your health and may even cause death.

6. Do not buy from a web site that does not have any access to a registered pharmacist that can answer questions.

7. Avoid sites that don’t contain information about the owner of the site and do not provide a street address and phone number to contact should problems arise.

8. If possible, refrain from purchasing from foreign web sites because generally it is illegal to import drugs from these sites and the risks you are facing are much greater. You could actually be held personally liable for importing this drug.

9. Be very careful in dealing with sites that claim that they have found a new cure for a certain serious disorder and offer quick cure-alls for a wide range of ailments. Likewise, stay away from sites that include undocumented case histories claiming remarkable results.

10. Beware of sites that make use of impressive sounding medical terminology to disguise their lack of research or those that claim that the government, the medical profession, or research scientists have conspired to suppress a products in spite of the effectiveness of the product to cure serious diseases. And if you want to be sure that you are purchasing from a licensed online pharmacy you may check out the site with the VIPPS and see whether it is a licensed pharmacy with good standing.

New Drug Approved to Treat ADHD

The new drug Vyvanse received approval on Monday by the Food and Drug Administration to affectively treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Although the medication received approval, it will come with a black box warning due to the possible side affects of the amphetamine contained in the medication.

The drug is manufactured by Shire PLC, the manufacturer of the current blockbuster ADHD medication Aderall XR. According to HealthDay, “The wire service quotes Shire spokesman Matt Cabrey as saying that the company has tested Vyvanse on adults who have a history of stimulant abuse to assess its “likeability.” The outcome, according to Shire, was that Vyvanse delays the intensity of amphetamine effects, which include increased alertness, physical activity, and decreased appetite.”

The ADHD drug is being produced by Shire PLC in hopes to replace Aderall XR who patent expires in 2009. According to IMS Health, Total sales for Aderall have increased by more than 300 percent in the last four years, earning more than $3.6 billion last year.

According to a recent poll from the US Department of Education, one in every ten students of 22 million students polled said they used or have used Aderall or a similar medication, many without a prescription. Many college students report using Aderall to pull all nighters, or cram for an upcoming test.

ADHD medication increased concentration, alertness, focus, short term memory, and wakefulness. Some side affects include suppressed appetite, amphetamine dependency, and heart attack.

Well for starters, it is in Okinawa where we can see the most number of people who have reached the age of 100 and above. Americans are three times less likely to achieve this age their population. Incidence of heart diseases is also relatively lower in Okinawa as compared to the U.S. Cases of breast and prostate cancer, colon and ovarian cancer; hip fractures are very minimal too.

Secret #1 is having a positive and optimistic outlook on life. Okinawans are happy go lucky people. They do not worry much; especially over small things that you really do not need to worry about. This makes then less likely to become stressed. At work, they work without pressuring themselves and they do things in a relaxed pace. These ways of life that is relaxed and free of stress is what experts believe have kept them healthy and alive longer.
Secret #2 is cultivating a strong relationship with people. A favorite activity of Okinawans is going out with their family and friends, to chat, laugh or just offer support. Studies have shown that people are healthier when they live an active social life. They actually have lower risk of getting sick.
Secret #3 is eating a healthy diet. The Okinawan diet consists of fish that has a high protein content and omega-3 oils and plant food that contains a large amount of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. It is actually very simple and wholesome. They also consume a relatively smaller amount of calories per day ? 500 to 1,000 calories less than that of what an average intake of an American is. A healthy and low calorie diet lessens their chances of becoming obese and gives them a healthier and longer life.
Secret # 4 is exercise. Most of the Okinawans exercise. They either do this by walking or working in their gardens at home or by doing tai chi, a traditional martial art.
Secret # 5 is avoid bad habits. You can only find a few old Okinawans who smoke and drink alcohol.
The sad truth is the future generations of Okinawans have less chances of living a healthy and longer life. The younger generation has become exposed to a modern and commercial diet. In fact, the younger generation already has a higher rate of obesity. Another health risk that the younger generation has taken is getting involved in bad health habits ? 60% of them are now smokers.
It would really make sense if the younger generation followed the example that the elder generation has shown. A positive attitude, strong interpersonal relationships, regular exercises, eating a wholesome and light diet, working with less pressure and stress, and free from the bad habits of smoking and alcoholic drinking. Simply put, this is the secret of the Okinawans on living a healthy, happy and longer life.
