Don't use a site that bypasses prescriptions. 3. Use a licensed pharmacy that offers access to a registered pharmacist. 4. Read the pharmacy's privacy and security policies. 5. Steer clear of sites that don't provide a street address and phone number. 6. When you get the medication, make sure it matches your prescription.
