• Health Canada: Don’t Buy Drugs at www.GlobalPharmacyCanada.com

    Health Canada, the country’s
    national health agency, recently warned consumers about the potential dangers
    of purchasing prescription drugs at www.GlobalPharmacyCanada.com.

    Health Canada cautions that the site is not a licensed Canadian pharmacy, and
    that it has not authorized the products sold by the website, according to a
    release from the health agency.

    The company behind the website recently blocked Canadian access to it, but
    consumers may have purchased drugs from it in the past. Health Canada says it
    is currently working with the Canada Border Service Agency to insure that no
    drug shipments from www.GlobalPharmacyCanada.com
    enter the country.

    The national health agency also warns that taking prescription drugs without
    consulting a health professional puts one at risk for potentially dangerous
    drug interactions and side effects.

    Consumers should also be aware of claims made by online pharmacies that say
    they are Canadian pharmacies, because such operations may sell drugs that are
    not authorized for use in Canada.

    Americans can protect themselves from such online pharmacies if they purchase
    their prescription drugs offline from a licensed U.S. pharmacy, or if they
    purchase them online from a pharmacy that has been certified by the Verified
    Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites, or VIPPS, program.
