Terrific service! I had some bumps entering my first order but your customer service people were very helpful in getting my order in. I was a bit wary about using an internet service but your good reviews and the fact that I received a three months supply of my Rx for a little less than the cost of one months supply from my local Pharmacy sold me on giving you a go. Not to mention the satisfaction derived from not pouring more money into the coffers of the predatory US Big Pharma companies.
