44% of Online Pharmacies Sell Foreign or Non-FDA Approved Medicine

If you buy drugs through an “online pharmacy,” there’s a chance that the medicine you receive is not only lacking FDA approval, but actually fake, according to the latest report from NABP. The health and safety risks associated with these counterfeit and non-approved drugs are very real.

Right now, this problem is primarily confined to fake “online pharmacies,” but our closed, protected medicine supply chain system is opened to foreign drug importation, we could face a heightened risk of counterfeit, tainted or substandard drugs unintentionally infiltrating our drug supply.
