I’m doing an acne treatment that consists of two prescription creams (differin and epiduo), they are imported and pretty expensive. They are running out and I absolutely cannot afford a dermatologist visit for them to write me a prescription. I originally got the prescription in another country so it’s not like I can simply ask an office here in the US to renew it. So my question is, does anybody have experience with those websites that promise to sell without an RX?

I thought the legitimate online pharmacies required a prescription still? I’ve never used one, as it is I went to a different pharmacy for a topical med because the pharmacist their specialized in compounding medications.
Why does it matter who gave you the original prescription? If I went to the US would I not be able to get refills from a GP (or PCP or whatever the term is there)?

bebero: No, i havent. I don’t think they are legal though.
Do you have contacts in another country that could refill your persciption and send to you?

AB Bride: it matters because if it was a US doctor I’d just call the office and ask them to give me a new prescription as opposed to paying for a full appointment

bebero: Ah! Thanks. So many offices here won’t do that anymore unless it’s urgent, because the doctors don’t get paid for it.
I know the difference between there and their, but WB won’t let me edit my post

I would not trust an online pharmacy that didn’t require a perscription. Is there no low-cost clinic you can attend? I know that I’ve had perscriptions renewed at walk-in clinics when a specialist wasn’t able to fit me in soon enough.
Like AB Bride, doctors don’t renew perscriptions over the phone anymore where I live, so I’ve had several scripts renewed at a walk-in clinic. I just brought in my old box/bottle and had them write me a refill, though granted, it was for stuff like Latisse.
