I ordered Restasis from LifeRx in hopesā€¦

I ordered Restasis from LifeRx in hopes of saving some money and I was not disappointed. I have no insurance so the pharmacies here in the US wanted over 700.00 for a 30 day supply. The sales staff at LifeRx helped with the ordering process and very pleased with all the help they gave me in uploading prescriptions to feeling safe about writing a check to them. I will recommend this company to my friends and family.

Good overall

Good overall. Could be better. Their prices are better than the competitors. The medicines arrived a lot earlier than expected. The problem was that I paid through paypal they took a long time to update me and confirm the receipt which can be somewhat unreassuring to a first time customer. Better to improve the communication in that part.
