Can OxyContin Be Ordered Online Without a Prescription?

Some Web sites may allow you to order this drug without a prescription. In addition to being illegal, these illicit "pharmacies" may also be dangerous. It is not safe to use OxyContin that has been bought without a prescription, for various reasons, such as:
  • OxyContin is not considered safe for use without a healthcare provider's supervision. Some people should not take the drug for certain health reasons, and OxyContin may interact with numerous other medications (see OxyContin Drug Interactions). Without the supervision of a healthcare provider, people may be more likely to suffer dangerous side effects or toxicities due to OxyContin.
  • Needing to buy OxyContin without a prescription is a good indication that you have a problem with OxyContin addiction. This is a serious problem that could be life-threatening.
  • Legitimate pharmacies will not sell OxyContin without a prescription. Because you can be assured that you are getting the "real thing" (not a counterfeit or expired medication) only from a legitimate pharmacy, ordering this drug without a prescription increases your risk of getting a substandard or dangerous product. Some Web sites offer to provide a prescription for OxyContin after a "consultation," usually consisting of a short questionnaire. This is not considered a legitimate prescription, and no legitimate pharmacy would fill such prescriptions. This is true for pharmacies in the United States and most other countries (including Canada and Mexico).
Additionally, buying OxyContin (or other similar medications) without a prescription is usually significantly more expensive than buying OxyContin legally.
