No. 6. Don't buy if you're not asked for a prescription.

Only use pharmacies that require a prescription from your doctor or other licensed professional.

If the pharmacy doesn't ask for one, you could get the wrong medicine.

No. 7. Look at privacy policies.

The pharmacy should list privacy and security settings. They should be easy for you to spot and understand.

The web site should not sell your personal information unless you sign an agreement saying it's OK.

No. 8. Keep personal info to yourself.

Don't risk giving it to strangers. Unless you know the pharmacy is safe, don't share your:

  • Social security number
  • Credit card information
  • Personal medical history

No. 9. Do your homework.

If you follow these tips, you should be good to go. Once you find a pharmacy that's on the up-and-up, "it's safe to order online," Catizone says.
