FDA Warns on Buying Medication Online

By Admin on July 06, 2007 8:06 AM

Buying prescription drugs over the internet can be risky, and may not save consumers money in the long run, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In a press release, the FDA states that "consumers who are trying to save money on prescription drugs don't need to take chances by buying prescription drugs from foreign Internet sites, because low-cost generic versions are available in the United States." The FDA also reminds consumers not to purchase medication online without a prescription, warning that "use of prescription drugs without a prescription is an intrinsically unsafe practice."
