Many reading this may not know how easy it is to get hold of prescription medications online.

Im talking about medication, that isn't prescribed to you from a doctor. You don't need a prescription, you just need to fill in the 'right' details for it to be prescribed and you can lie. You can get them in bulk and at high strengths.

I'm not going to mention names of the websites due to me wanting to protect vulnerable people.

I have myself, bought medication from websites and also know plenty people who have too. Its a pandemic in suicidal and vulnerable people with mental health problems.

I found out about buying medications online at age 18 before knowing anyone who had done it. But it wasn't till recently I actually bought any as I was in such a dark headspace.

I have no shame to say, that I'm on daily dispence medication due to my mental health. So, this deminstrates how professionals in my care believe I'm at high risk. Yet, I can cut corners and buy prescription medications, not prescribed to me at a click of a button.

There is a very high risk from buying medications online, from not knowing what's actually in them and also how easy it is to get hold of them. Especially for vulnerable people who are suicidal and some of the drugs are highly fatal in overdoses. 

I beleive you should only be able to get medication from your own doctor/ hospital and through a pharmacy. Not an online pharmacy that has no information about yourself. You don't even need to give proof of who you are. 

These medications NEED to be stopped to protect vulnerable people.
