What is interesting about this particular pharmacy platform is that it is the owner of a number of other e-commerce drugstores. We will cover each one of these stores below.
- Roman – A digital clinic that focuses just on the well-being of men. Here you are able to purchase medication for hair loss as well as other products such as testosterone supplements.

Not a lot of reviews were available about this e-commerce drugstore. The two that we did find were located on the ‘Review’ section of this internet drugstore’s Facebook page. One of the reviews was negative, complaining about a big price hike. While the other review recommended the online drugstore due to its low prices. In total, on Facebook, this pharmaceutical website has a total score of 3 stars out of 5.
On the pharmaceutical website itself, there are a few pieces of feedback featured prominently. However, at the time, there was no page totally dedicated to these testimonials. Furthermore, the online retailer claims that its feedback is from real members, but there is no way to verify this. Regardless, you should pay attention only to third-party feedback.
To conclude, Ro.co is a fancy option for non-price-sensitive patients. Its service seems to be very high quality, but if you do a bit more research. You will likely be able to find the same medical products on other online pharmacies for much less. The lack of feedback for such an established medical retailer is also a worrying factor.
