I want a over the counter product which I don't seem to be able to get locally. I can get it online. Any issues I should be aware of?

snowwonder Sun 08-Jul-07 21:12:55

i think it will be fine as well....

right i have posted on 2 out of 3 , cant help with the other sorry

Yes I ahve used Garden Pharmacy at Covent Graden online loads of times ! I think it's only a prob if you use internet to buy drugs that have not been prescribed for you !

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 21:29:01

It is a non-prescribed over the counter so I assume that is OK

You want to be careful you don't get counterfeit drugs though - apparently 40% of those tested recently were fakes and some are v. dodgy. Boots is a good way to go though.

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 21:35:18

I couldn't get what I wanted in boots locally.

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 21:35:58

It is only Pripsen for is not a lifesaving drug.

Sorry worms as in intestinal worms or as in pets?

whomovedmychocolate Sun 08-Jul-07 21:43:45

This store is an approved NHS supplier - this is a good sign.

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 21:49:09


Will def check that they are NHS registered. The ones I am looking at just seem to be extensions of street corner chemists

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 21:54:40

this is hte one I was looking at

whomovedmychocolate Sun 08-Jul-07 21:58:55

Well they are a licensed pharmacy - they look fine to me.

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 22:00:49

Sorry I am not being rude and ignoring yours but the link won't open.

I will try the illage pharmacy tomorrow and order online if I can't get it.

whomovedmychocolate Sun 08-Jul-07 22:01:50

No, your link I meant. The one you posted, they are fine. Go with them.

Blimey your worms will have moved out by the time I write a coherent sentence

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 22:02:33

I know what yoou meant. I didn't want you to think I was ignoring your suggestion and going off to find my own....

whomovedmychocolate Sun 08-Jul-07 22:07:24

It's your icky health problem, I wasn't offended. But thanks.

I can't imagine what it must be like to have worms urrgggh <<shudder>>, do you feel them wriggling.

No, please don't answer....

...funnily I can deal with any form of blood or gore but parasites make me heave.

Good luck killing the little bastards though!

wmmc, I just have to join in here, it's awful.
Ds2, 12m, had a scarey nappy.
The horror, the horror.
And although I have no physical symptoms whatsoever I know I probably have them. I waste too much time peering into the bowl.
Good for the diet.

SlightlyMadSalmon Sun 08-Jul-07 22:23:46

Yes looking forward to THE nappy....NOT

cadelaide Sun 08-Jul-07 22:53:45

Actually SMS, the nappy was kind of disappointing.
Nothing of note.

whomovedmychocolate Mon 09-Jul-07 06:12:26

Oh well I guess I have this joy to come!

SlightlyMadSalmon Mon 09-Jul-07 16:05:48

SlightlyMadSalmon Mon 09-Jul-07 16:49:35

whomovedmychocolate Mon 09-Jul-07 21:42:53

It'll probably still work. I think they pad the dates anyway.
