Just wondering if anyone has any experience of using an online doctor/pharmacy?
I'm tempted but worried that it's not legit etc.
Having a run of terrible insomnia and would like to request a prescription for Zopiclone, which I had used sporadically in the past.
Can't get a gp appointment as I work in the week and it's not an emergency per-say.
Thanks

I used push doctor when I had mastitis (had it before so knew what it was).
Was very easy and had a prescription sent to local pharmacist quite quickly.
I used them because I was of on holiday that day and didn't want to wait around at walk in.

Yes I used push doctor at the weekend, I ran out of my asthma inhaler and was fairly wheezy. Cba to sit around the walk in for a couple of hours so I used them. Very quick and easy and worth the fee for convenience. I wouldn't rely on them if I needed and actual diagnosis though.

I’ve used Lloyd’s pharmacy online for salbutamol and Pharmacy2u for a steroid nasal spray.

I’ve used Push Doctor too, for tonsillitis. Again, I knew exactly what it was, plus they were doing an offer where you only paid £5 for the consultation.

I’ve also used The Online Clinic (where you don’t do a face to face consultation) when I had that wisdom tooth/gum thing, peri-something. The Online Clinic post the drugs to you rather than a script, and you can go back and forth with questions from the doctor for a while via email, but they don’t charge an appointment fee.

Thanks all. I've successfully ordered a prescription. Funnily, I slept well last night after all my panic about not sleeping over the last while.
