I've been using LifeRx Pharmacy for about a year, and the service is great! For the particular medication I get from them, I don't think it's ever been more than 7-10 days from placing an order to getting it in my mailbox. I always get a call from someone there, checking to see if the order arrived and how long it took. And the price is much more reasonable, even factoring in the delivery charge, than it would be through my local pharmacy on my Medicare Part D plan. I'll definitely continue ordering from them.
