What is a reputable online pharmacy that ships to Australia?

What is a reputable online pharmacy that ships to Australia? I want to try a medicine (Nuvigil) that isn't available here, but is legal to import. Will talk to my Dr about suitability, of course.

Can a pharmacist refuse to dispense antibiotics?

A friend of mine went to fill a prescription for doxycycline for Lyme Disease. The pharmacist refused to give it to her unless she had a pregnancy test. Is this legal in New York State? If not what can be done about it?

Is there a generic form of the sleep aid medicine Restoril (temazepam)?

My prescription is ourageous for brand name temazepam and my pharmacy doesn't offer any generics of it. Why would one pharmacy carry it and others not? Where can I find it.

What to do with unusable medication (Crestor)?

I began taking Crestor via samples several months ago, but due to side effects have stopped. While using the samples, I also had a prescription for it filled. I am now stuck with a sealed, prescription bottle, along with several samples of Crestor. The pharmacy is unable to take the sealed bottle back. The prescription was rather expensive to simply wind up in the trash. What should I do with it and the samples?

Too much of my ADD medication - should I worry?

Pharmacists, medical professionals: I take methylphenidate for ADD. A month ago my regular pharmacy was out so I went to a different one. The pill looked different but I'm used to generics varying in appearance. So I thougt nothing of it. Today I refilled the prescription and the pill looked so different that I got worried and looked it up. My perscribed dosage is 20mg 3 times daily. It seems that for the last month I'd been unknowingly taking 20mg extended release 3 times daily (occasionaly four when I had to work late). I honestly didn't notice a difference, but now I'm worried. This shit is dangerous and I don't like to mess around with my mind. What dangers are there to the increased syrum levels I'd been experiencing? Considering that that the ER plateaus at something like 10mg for about 8 hours, I could have had as much as 30mg active in my body for several hours a day for 30 days. This is scary. Note, no information given will be treated as advice. If you guys scare me I'll reconfirm with a doctor and persue an appropriate course of action. So please, be honest. Is this a problem, or no big deal? [more inside]
