How to treat food poisoning after a nice sunny picnic? What types of medicines are offered by Bitcoin pharmacies?

Summertime is the time for picnics and recreation in nature’s lap. For it is so good to spend a great time with your friends or relatives, and recover your breath after noisy megapolises with their stale air and concrete heat. However, the summer heat makes it more difficult to preserve food, and it spoils faster. And even if it seems good, there is still a high danger of getting food poisoning. 

What do you do if you are unlucky enough to feel terrible after a good picnic, realizing you’ve got yourself food poisoning? Not much, actually. First of all, you should drink a lot of water to avoid dehydration. You can also take some anti-nausea and anti-diarrhea medicines, though they don’t always have an immediate or good effect after toxins have got into your blood, so you’d probably still have to suffer through it all. Besides, some resources, such as WebMD  recommend “not to take anti-nausea or anti-diarrhea medication without asking your doctor. They may make some kinds of diarrhea worse.”

The best choice of medicines against food intoxication are different kinds of sorbents. Some doctors even think them to be necessary as they bind toxins and drive them out of the organism. You can buy them in any nearby pharmacy. But if you’re lazy enough that you don’t even want to leave your house, you can order your medicine online using your bitcoins. Here are some pharmacies that accept Bitcoin:

Canada Bitcoin Pharmacy 

Canada Bitcoin Pharmacy was the first Bitcoin only pharmacy. If you want to buy some medicines there, you can do it right on the website, and then use your exchange account to pay for your order. The Pharmacy allows payments via Coinbase, Circle, or LocalBitcoins. They also offer worldwide shipment, though it takes 2-3 weeks, so you’d have to go to the trouble of ordering everything in advance.

Genericmarket, Topmeds, Drug For Love

All three of these pharmacies have quite a wide range of generic drugs. As they state, their generic drugs allow “saving up to 90% of the cost of many well-known medications, that you can find in every ordinary chemist and the most reliable service in the web space”.

All three of them offer two options of shipping: Trackable Courier Service, which takes 5-9 days and International Unregistered Airmail, which takes 14-21 days. The pharmacies promise to “provide delivery to almost all countries around the world”.

The contact numbers and descriptions in all three “About Us” sections are identical, so it is reasonable to conclude that all three websites belong to one company. However, the owner or the company aren’t stated on the site, so perhaps one should hesitate before buying anything there or at least have a more thorough study of the pharmacies’ history.

Pharmacy for Bitcoins

JCM Pharmacy

If you want to deal with a company that has a long and checked out history, you may apply to JSM Pharmacy. The company has operated since 1962. Starting from one pharmacy in Singapore, they’ve developed into over 45 working departments in India, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.  

They offer a wide range of generic drugs, so you’d probably find something suitable and cheap enough to save you from food intoxication. Besides, they offer some bonuses for Bitcoin payments that would allow you  save money.

Swiss Online Pharmacy

The range of drugs offered by Swiss Online Pharmacy is very wide. They have a whole separate section for gastrointestinal system diseases and disorders, offering medicines such as motilium, omez etc. 

They are also one of few online pharmacies that offer refunds within 28 working days. Mind, most pharmacies - online or not - don’t offer any refunds. As for shipment options, they use Registered airmail or EMS speed post. The shipment takes 8-21 days.
