I received my first order and I couldn't be happier. I have COPD which became life-threatening in October requiring medications I have not been able to afford until now. Just after using my meds for two days I am up and walking around without my oxygen. Thanks to Genericdoctor. Please don't stop this wonderful service. It is a blessing to us who cannot afford our medications any other way and to those who just want to save a bit of money. Thanks again for your help. I wouldn't have medications if it wasn't for Genericdoctor.
