It’s now cheaper to buy prescription drugs on Alpha Bay Market than from over the counter.
According to some users on the darknet platform, most general practitioners and hospital medics reduce the quantity of items prescribed in order to make their own profits.
For instance, if a patient requires pills to last for about 10 days they instead get treatment for 2-3 days. This is so that the patient can continue buying items from them continuously.
Additionally, hospital consultants are claiming that they can’t afford to give a prescription for certain medicines such as codeine, saying it’s a stretch on their resources, and people should, therefore, get medicine pills from general practitioners.
Something that can be very expensive compared to buying the same items on Alpha Bay Market.
Another example is practitioners reducing down on diazepam dosage; medics may recommend 2 mg.
tablets after every 3 days to a week then again pay another £8.50 the following week, hiking prices of small quantities of diazepam to rates of up to £34 a month for products like 80 mg. of diazepam.
However, on Alpha Bay Market 160 mg. of the same drug can be obtained for only £14.
The situation gets even grimmer for those with rare conditions like certain types of cancer.
NHS has openly refused to subsidize the price of drugs used to manage these conditions. Buying them privately from clinics is way more costly than most people can afford.
People are warning industry regulators that this kind of manipulation on the price of prescriptions will only make them seek these products on darknet markets such as Alpha Bay Market.
There are many honest vendors on these platforms who understand the importance of providing affordable medication at decent rates, they don’t scam people and are very reliable as well.
For some medicines like Ibuprofen, Zantac and paracetamol doctors don’t even bother prescribing them to patients since these are cheap and not profitable to them.
One of these drugs can cost only 25 pence a pack. Moreover, they know that if they make Omeprazole available for sale without prescription, then that could save people lots of money.
But the medics won’t do that since they’re cashing in big by charging patients up to 8 quid for x28 tablets.
Some people believe that NHS is manipulating the prices so as to trick patients into spending more money on them than they usually ought to.
In some cases, drug prices have been pushed up by even 2000% more than what’s found on Alpha Bay Market.
The NHS failure to regulate drug rates and lack of proper funding affects the most vulnerable members of society, some of who have been making contributions to state medical plans their entire lives.
While in most countries you can buy Prilosec from over-the-counter, in others a medical prescription would be needed first before getting this drug.
Through NHS you can receive only X28 tablets of this drug at £8.50, whereas buying it online, you can get x350 pills for just £10.00.
