Where To Buy Medicines Online (During Lockdowns)

With the onset of new quarantine and lockdown period, we always have the notion “Naku, mahirap na naman bumili ng grocery.” To be honest, buying grocery foods is easier than buying prescription drugs. When we see long queues of people buying medicine, sometimes we wonder if some of them are carriers of Covid-19, right? We found a convenient way to buy our prescription medicines without taking risk of going outside.

This is not a sponsored post.

Kenshin and Pia have colds and coughs for about a week now, and their pediatrician has given us a prescription of medicines to buy. Instead of buying directly at the drugstore counter, we look for an online drugstore that can deliver our meds the same day. Fortunately, we discovered that Mercury Drug Store offers a CALL-ORDER-DELIVER service thru Viber.

Mercury Branches that offer this service:

North Metro Manila South Metro Manila
Quezon City EDSA Congressional


Makati City Edsa Danlig DT


MDC 100


Makati City BelAIR Hercules


Quezon City Retiro Mayon


Taguig City BGC 32nd St.


Cainta Q-Plaza


Paranaque City JAKA Plaza


Quezon City Commonwealth

Tandang Sora


Muntinlupa City ATC


San Juan City GH Ortigas


Pasig San Joaquin



All you need to do is to choose the branch nearest to your home and send a message to their Viber number. I had tried ordering medicines from Quezon City Retiro Mayon and Quezon City EDSA Congressional branches, and both were very responsive and accommodating. The regular delivery fee is P100 regardless of the purchased quantity.

Last night, I chatted with the Congressional branch at 1 AM and they responded quickly. Due to the early morning service, they charged double the delivery fee, P200. But for us, it’s better than going out buying medicines. I paid thru Gcash but they also accept Debit or Credit Card payment and Paymaya. They asked for my contact details and later on informed me that the courier had already picked up my items.

After 1 hour, I received the medicines for Kenshin.

For us, this online service is very convenient and hassle-free because it saves energy and time. Although this service is available to Metro Manila branches, so hopefully, they will extend this to their provincial branches. Mercury Drug Store has been one of the most trusted pharmacies, that is why I’m pretty sure that transacting with them online is safe and legitimate.

    Hassle po talaga ang bumili ng gamot ngayong pandemic, it is good news that there’s CALL-ORDER-DELIVER service ang Mercury Drug Store. Sulit na yung delivery fee compare kun ikaw pa mismo ang lalabas to buy medicine. Wait ko na maging available din sa provincial tong service na to para makaave din kami ng time and effort.

    Indeed, during this pandemic it is really hard to buy some medicine because of this quarantine. We can’t go out to buy some medicine because we’re not allowed to go out. That’s why buying medicine online is a great help and it is more convenient than buying it outside. This is very helpful especially for those who have their maintenance. Thank you for sharing this.


    Ang galing nga po may mga ganitong pharmacies na available online service delivery lalo na sa mga restrictions and protocols sobrang haba ng pila sa mga over the counter. Hoping na magkaroon na din sila ng ganitong serbisyo sa mga provinces.
