    If some person wants to buy some particular medication but doctors do not take care to
    prescribe it, what a person suppose to do? Is it possible to buy drug (which do not belong
    to restricted things) without prescription? If not in U.S., then in what country is it possible?

    It depends on what medication, in what country, state, county, you live. Non-restricted drugs can be bought from some Canadian, Mexican, Indian and other, online pharmacies. It is also advisable that if you think it will really will help you try one or more other doctors in your home country to perscribe it for you. You can also go to another country to buy such medications if you are close enough to such a country. Buying them online involves filling out applications, sometimes copies of several I.D.'s your health history, but usually not too difficult. It's not too difficult if you are totally dedicated to succeeding. You can also buy such drugs, even controlled ones, from someone else that can more easily get them.

    What do you mean as non-restricted? Do they carry any responsibility for what drug they ship to me and its quality?
    And if something will happen to me or it will be different or poor quality drug nobodys going to be responsible?

    Most every country have classes of drugs which are restricted such as opiates, benzodiazapines, barbituates, etc. These drugs are difficult to get anywhere without a prescription. But other prescription drugs are often available online. Often you can specify name brands that are purchased from their home-country sources. Most of these online companies do big business and take no chances with counterfeit drugs, quality, or shelf life, etc. I've never had a problem with such purchases. Canada may be the safest purchases, then India and Mexico usually being the cheapest. India usually makes their own generic versions and Mexico usually buys from all over the world.

    There are a great many drugs that are not approved by a particular country that have been approved in another, that can be easily purchased online.

    The first step is to ask why your doctor did not prescribe to you the medication you're looking for.
    Sometimes it's because he doesn't think you need the medication. Are you sure you know why you need certain medications and understand their risks and benefits?
    Other times, it may be because you can get the medications over the counter, like at CVS pharmacy, without the need for a prescription.
    Occasionally, your doctor simply forgets to write you a prescription. In that case, ask about it.

    I would suggest not buying any medications online. Many of such websites are fishy and not trusted. If any website offers you a prescribed medications with no prescribed, then please be suspicious and DON'T buy. I am not talking about the popular pharmacies we all familiar with such as walgreens and CVS.

    One problem in the US is often insurance companies dictate what drugs they are willing to pay for regardless of what the doctor might be willing to prescribe you. If for instance you want Viagra above the allowed amount and you wanted a much better price than you could get it here in the US. Your best bet is an India drug Co. and I know for a fact that the little blue pills you get in the mail work just as well as what you could pick up at a Walgreen's.

    There is a reason we have prescription power restricted to medical doctors. All medications that require a prescription are considered by the national health authorities to be dangerous to a greater or lesser degree. Even doctors have other doctors prescibe for them. There is a maxim in medicine, "The Doctor who treats himself has a fool for a patient."

    If you buy drugs from India, be prepared for a placebo. There are so many phony drug companies that simply sell you sugar pills and claim it is viagra, or whatever.

    Mexico...according to a friend who visited there a few years ago. He bought name brand, American manufactured antibiotics without a prescription, over the counter. The price was a LOT lower than we pay for the SAME prescribed stuff here. It is a pretty common practice there.

    Hey, my on-line viagra is not a placebo They can make big money if their products are real due to many reorders. Otherwise they make a few quick dishonest bucks and have to look over their shoulders concerning prison terms. Not worth it. To sell online, without a prescription, real medications that aren't restricted, my guess is they would first get a warning before FDA regulatory intervention/ discipline. I see the same companies selling such medications for many years, so it would seem that they are selling either the real thing, or a generic version of it. Counterfeit drugs could be a problem concerning some drugs since there may be no controls on their manufacturing and the on-line pharmacy that buys and sells these drugs, may not be aware that a particular drug is counterfeit.

    Yes, this is true. I buy such drugs much cheaper down there all the time.
