"I was pleasantly surprised by the assortment. You can really find products that either are not included in the assortment of conventional drugstores or available under the order. Prices are really lower. Delivery is free from $150. This is a huge plus, very fast, I would say lightning fast. The interface of the website is certainly pleasing, thought out. I order drugs with home delivery."
