The Partnership for Safe Medicines’ Web site features a comprehensive consumer resources center that helps individuals learn about the threats endangering the safety of our prescription drugs and how to minimize their risk of getting a counterfeit drug. These free resources include:
- Safe Savings: This informative brochure arms consumers with the right information to purchase their medications at a more affordable price AND avoid the serious safety risks that accompany purchasing imported medicine.
- S.A.F.E. D.R.U.G.: This “how-to” guide helps consumers identify and protect against counterfeit medicines by showing patients how to judge whether their medications are safe and provides tips on what to do if a drug has been compromised.
- Medicine Assistance Tool: Medicine Assistance Tool (MAT) helps uninsured and financially struggling patients get access to nearly 500 healthcare and prescription assistance programs that offer medicines for free or nearly free.
