Communication/Conferences: US FDA Gives Tips on Spotting Fake Medicines (2/2)

June 13, 2014 - www.fightthefakes.org

As advised by the FDA, if buying drugs from a source that could have a much higher chance of selling fake medicines, we must all be especially vigilant. This would include:

  • Purchasing drugs from a new source
  • Responding to an unsolicited offer, usually with a significantly lower price, that comes through an advertisement, email, fax or telephone call
  • Purchasing a product on the Internet from an unknown source
  • Purchasing a product that is in high demand or one that is on the drug shortage list.
