SAFEMEDICINES Tools to help pharmacists protect patients from counterfeit medication
Pharmacists are in a unique position to both prevent counterfeit medication use and diagnose the telltale signs of counterfeit drugs in their patients.
With risks to patients coming from direct-retail channels, such as fake online pharmacies, as well as from dubious distributors, pharmacists need to be on their guard to insure their patients receive only certifiably authentic U.S. FDA approved medication.
Be sure to share with your patients the ways they can protect themselves from counterfeits, and ways to find affordable prescription medications and to save money safey when buying medication online by providing them our consumer handouts:
- “What you don’t know about buying drugs from Canada“
- “Save money safely on prescriptions from online pharmacies“
- “SAFE DRUG” (also available in Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese)
- “SAFE SAVINGS“
