Counterfeit Drugs

Why Should I Be Concerned About Counterfeit Drugs?

Counterfeit medicine is fake medicine. It may be contaminated or contain the wrong ingredient or no active ingredient at all. If you or your family receives and uses counterfeit drugs you may experience adverse effects to your health – including death. In the United States, the most common way that people receive counterfeit drugs is from ordering from rogue Internet drug sites. This is because it is easier for unscrupulous people to get around the regulatory safeguards that brick and mortar pharmacies must follow.
