Fraudulent Online Pharmacies Put Consumers at Risk
Recently the FDA began cracking down on internet pharmacies, which are online stores where customers can fill prescriptions or get medications in some cases without a prescription. The FDA found that 97 percent of online pharmacies conduct business illegally: offering medications without prescriptions, giving out expired or counterfeit medications, and in some cases sending customers the wrong medications. According to Fox News, 7 in 10 Americans do not believe that buying prescription drugs online could be dangerous.
Online Drugstores Flaunt State and Federal Regulations
- Online drugstores send out counterfeit medications that can be dangerous or deadly.
- Many consumers receive the wrong medications, which could be lethal.
- There is no way to verify that online pharmacies are run by licensed pharmacists or doctors.
- Attempting to save money by purchasing medications from illegal sites could be extremely dangerous.
