With cheaper drugs made available on the internet, big pharmacy companies are losing control of their monopolistic control over the pharmacy market. They are not able to compete with these online pharmacies with their exorbitant drug costs. FDA moves in and tries to protect those companies from online pharmacies by attempting to censor online information from customers. What FDA doesn’t know about the world wide web is: nobody controls net and the spread of information over the net. Even major search engines such as Google have no control over the use of information online. Google protects and encourages free speech online and that is the reason why searching online for products is so great – you can find anything online these days. If major pharmaceutical leaders cannot compete with internet pharmacies’ prices, they ought to look to resolving the situation themselves, not use FDA or use political pressures. What good is the internet if certain products are censored?
How Good Can It Get?
Buying medicine online is the way of the future. They do away the need for extensive pharmaceutical company structures and countless drug salesmen stalking hospitals and practices each day. When comparing online pharmacies and pharmaceutical leaders, it’s similar to comparing Toyota and BMW. Online pharmacies work like Toyota- cheap and more effective. They are safer and better than BMW in many ways while BMW signifies the prestige of having a continental car.
Clearly, we ought to present cheaper medication alternatives via online pharmacies to internet users as well as brand name medications. Thus far, US pharmaceutical industry is infested with drug lords and BMWs, but why can’t there be online pharmacies and Toyotas?
