This once reliable online pharmacy has either gone rogue, had their website stolen or has become a selective scammer. Either way, the fact stands that they had recently selectively scammed a few of their customers. Contacting the pharmacy has also been a difficulty lately. It is rumored that this pharmacy is also data mining their customers.

Palmira drug store review

The once-reliable pharmacy is nowadays known to hiccup with their orders, failing to ship and failing to answer attempts to contact them. Here are some quotes about this pharmacy from established members of our forum:

"I placed a small test order last week that only made it as far as Customs.
So, Pal is indeed shipping -- but apparently continues to get scrutiny. Big bummer.
I understand it had switched its shipping method, but my letter was supposed to come via its usual method."

"They have double dipped into my bank account two times for one order, to the tune of over $200. This happened on March 6th and then again on March 8th.
I've emailed them many times requesting a credit. Maria keeps saying "Don't worry, don't worry".
Well, I'm worried. She has had 5 days to issue a credit, and hasn't. I can only assume they (Palmira) are keeping the money."

"Years as a good vendor, good service, fast delivery, decent product... heck you could even skype with Maria.... slowly customer service went downhill, phone numbers disappeared, emails bounced... bur orders still arrived timely. They had some meds that were really good, some that were so-so and some "stay away". But I think it was 2nd/3rd quarter of last year, they sent out an email blast stating they they could offer alot of things they NEVER offered before, like Perc's, Vicodin, Oxy, etc... BUT the kicker was you could NOT order through the site. It was WU only and the shipping was claimed to be US to US. Absolutely sounded too good to be true, especially due to the way the orders were to be processed. There was much discussion and finally, someone took one for the team and placed an order this way. The plan, as always should be when one of us kind souls takes a big shot in the dark like this is to wait for them to receive, report, etc.... well after only a few days a bunch of people jumped in the pool without waiting to see how the test order went. Test order went.... to shit. Nothing ever arrived, no response to any emails.... no one else rec'd their orders either. People were righteously PISSED! Maria & David were given a chance to respond, they never offically did. But the story goes, an employee (ex-employee now of course) got the customer email list, used David's name and pulled this big scam and walked off with a bunch of cash. "

Palmira is still around.....but stay away...not wo

This site used to have some of the best generic alprazolam around. Probably still does but the website is poorly constructed and maintained.
They don't answer emails or their phone.

I have received in 2014 and was very happy except for the extra surcharge they call a donation.
The packaging is not discrete by any standards.

I ordered one more time this year (2015) and the package was seized.
The only redeeming factor is payment method which is both convenient and disputable in the event of non delivery.
So many better vendors.......just not worth your time or effort!

alternative Honduran sources???

Having already reviewed Palmira, and sadly concluded that this once-great pharmacy is now to be avoided, I should like to ask: does anybody know of any other source of the excellent Karnel Diazam and Traxil brands of diazepam and alprazolam respectively? The quality of these medicines can not be denied.
The other question is that, since drugbuyers.com were responsible for the closing of ALL Costa Rican pharmacies online - which were both cheap and VERY high quality, selling REAL Roche VALIUM and other medications I use at a price not found anywhere else, (used to be a loyal RxPuraVida client) - due to irresponsible idiots posting in great detail the description of the packaging from these great places and giving US Customs the necessary information to intercept over 80% of all packets of medicine from there, the site administration, being a front organisation for a group of career criminals, does anybody know also of any IOP in that country which still operates?
VALIUM at affordable rates (and not the half strength, poor quality Pakistani Martin DOW Pharma lookalikes) and the KARNEL brands mentioned above are much missed here! Anyone with any site which they can post here which satisfies these conditions, PLEASE let us know. I for one would be very grateful for such a site to use; UK Customs do not appear to be as strictly efficient at seizing medications from the area, and Palmira used a roundabout method of mailing so that the origin was hidden.
Thank you to anybody who is able to assist.

Palmira back then

This IOP used to be so good just a couple of years ago. Their benzos, even though the brand was unrecognizable, were some really excellent quality medications. Their prices were great aside from all of those extra fees, and the shipping time was incredible. I would receive my order within a week. And then things started to change, and Palmira began to sell those scheduled two medications and every site began to blacklist the site. So I am wondering if they've gotten their shit together by now. I'm almost tempted to make an order because I'd like to see if they're any good anymore, like in the beginning. Because they were one of the first pharmacies that I ever ordered from and I was really blown away by the quality of their benzodiazepines and excellent shipping time. Even customer service was decent. I mIss this pharm, but have been so afraid to order due to all of these awful reviews.

Palmira

Indeed this used to be superb, especially for their KARNEL medications Diazam and Traxil (diazepam 10mg and alprazolam 1mg) which are of superb quality which rivals the best of the European brands. Their Rebasing (clonazepam) unfortunately is not very good at all and over priced compared with the rest of their BZDs.
However, I agree that even getting Maria to reply to an enquiry is now a time consuming and ultimately unrewarding experience; although I myself have not been ripped by them, and I do pay quite a lot for their three country roundabout shipping system, I have read over the past three years that they have been going downhill by the day. Hearing of scamming and once about somebody being charged twice for the same order, stuff like that. Does not inspire confidence any longer and sadly I have had to scrub Karnel's excellent meds off my shopping list forever as I have no wish to become a victim, even though at one time a few years back I was a regular and quite free spending client here.
Sounds to me as if blacklist is where they now belong.

They are gone.....

Truly think they are gone, despite the spam that recently started again about US/US. Website paid up, card processer paid up. Ordered for a long time from them, only a few select items. Now when you order, you get an order #, a temp auth to your credit card and an auto generated email about your order. Then the temp auth falls off. That USED to be a good thing as it meant your order was about to ship and your card would hard charge in a day or two. Now, the card simply is never charged, you receive no further communication and no order shows up. So, not getting ripped off (at least in my case) as my card doesn't end up with the hard charge but can't make an order.... have a feeling they high tailed it over the border to Nicaragua. RIP, Palm..... Strongly advise no one take them up on ANY US / US. If you think back a bit, the WU/MG scam on products that Palm didn't even carry and a lot of people got burned because of impatience on the select few volunteers who made the test orders on that scam.
