Lloyds Pharmacy flogging Tamiflu online - to who exactly?

31 July 2009

Are you suffering from a touch of the sniffles and (probably wrongly) assuming that it’s The Swine Flu? Or are you bricking it at the thought that you might catch it? If your doctor won’t believe you and refuses to issue you with a blast of Tamiflu, you’ll be pleased to know that from today, you can easily buy it online.

Lloyds Pharmacy are the first major retailer to start selling the drug online, and are selling a pack of ten doses for just £48.50, which they claim is less than half the price of some other online sources. The drug is not available instore and is delivered by post, hopefully not by a postman who is carrying the virus.

Potential purchasers must register at the pharmacy’s website and answer a short questionnaire before they can make their purchase, and Lloyds are pitching the service as a chance for concerned people to stock up in case they contract The Swine Flu.

Would you consider stocking up on Tamiflu for less than fifty quid or would you just get yours by gaming the NHS self-diagnosis system? Maybe you're some kind of toughie who would just walk it off if you caught the virus? Have you had it, and did it make people think you were cool, or some kind of leper? Share your thoughts with us, but please don’t sneeze on to the screen while you’re typing. Cheers.

    Has any body asked the question as to what Tamiflu actually does. As far as my research has uncovered it does not kill the virus , simply aleviates the symptoms somewhat speeding up your natural recovery time by approx 1 day, with the added possibility of the nasty side affects. yours Jack

    Tamiflu sounds like a virus you get from chewing on used ladies sanitary products.

    There are many online pharmacies that commit fraud by selling people medications that are expired or close to expiring. Many other online pharmacies sell pills at a much higher price.
