Unfortunately in my case its severe back pain probably due to disc prolapse - started to improve in week 4 but then overdid it & Im now back in bed - hence I have to buy online

Checkout on the first item listed above yeilds this message "In order to proceed to checkout your order subtotal must exceed £1.20."
So I ordered more items to take the total over £1.20 and select First class delivery which was free.
Its a good spot, from a real UK Pharmacy, great price.

Has anyone ordered from here?
How do I know how to order to get free delivery?
Sites says free for >£20

I thought it was free delivery on over £20 spend, but there is an option for free delivery 3-5 days upon checkout

Did they really let you order those quantites? They are normally reluctant to let you have these due to people overdosing.....
website restricts me to 2 packs only

restrictions are per product not across different products

furthermore free delivery means you can probably place multiple orders as long as there is not just one person processing them

Just placed an order for £8.50 and there is no free delivery option for this amount. Only options given are £2.95 tracked, £2.65 First Class, and Interlink Express £4.25 so best order a fair bit to get your money's worth out of the postage.

Placed 2 orders and got free delivery on both, both orders were about £4. Aspirins and painkillers are restricted, so you would not get the massive quantities ordered by the poster in one order. I put 6 boxes of asprins and system automatically restricted that to 2. But was able to 6 chapsticks etc

Strange. I was charged £2.65. Not complaining because overall great value including postage. Just tried a few test purchases (all under £20) and sometimes postage would be charged and sometimes not (even on orders containing the same items). Very odd. Ah well. You win some, you lose some.

Perhaps if you asked your GP for something that actually works, then you might not be bed bound! Excessive bed rest is not often the right option for back problems.

I would have been dead or at best bed bound for more than 20 years if I had depended on Ibuprofen and paracetamol with the consequent gastric disorders caused by Ibuprofen and liver damage that took 4years to completely disappear thanks to 4g of paracetamol per day!

What's good for you might not be best for bayhabourbutcher.

> Perhaps if you asked your GP for something that actually works, then you might not be bed bound!

For the record I have a chronic serious back issue that has caused permanent nerve & muscle fibre damage & not just a 'sore' back

All a GP would do is give me something like codeine or diclofenac (as in the past) which does the same basic job as over the counter medicines like aspirin & ibuprofen

Not seeing a GP yet is mostly a matter of practicality as I live alone & cannot get to the surgery on my own right now

> Excessive bed rest is not often the right option for back problems.

Thats why I tried to become more active in week 4 but I re-injured my back despite trying to be careful - I currently am just about able to get out of bed to feed myself before the pain reaches a level where i have no option but to lie down with my calves raised resting on a bean bag

> I would have been dead or at best bed bound for more than 20 years if I had depended on Ibuprofen and paracetamol with the consequent gastric disorders caused by Ibuprofen and liver damage that took 4years to completely disappear thanks to 4g of paracetamol per day!

All drugs have side effects including GP prescribed ones such as codeine & diclofenac

I am not taking anti inflammatory painkillers for the sake of it or due to some addiction - I am takng them because i am suffereing from near constant pain which at times is severe enough that I think I might pass out - if I am lucky I can sleep for 2 to 3 hours before the pain wakes me up even when I am taking painkillers

Be my guest suffer.
But if you have pain as severe as it appears to be, aspirins won't get you more mobile, and if it really IS a herniated disk, then you need something a lot more pro-active than lying in bed.

I am not offering solutions, I don't pretend to be a Doctor, but if you are bed bound due to it, then you need one, not aspirin and paracetamol.
As someone with back damage of a pernanent nature, I am speaking from personal experience.

Really bad service. Poor customer care. Stinking attitude.
