What NABP Study Exposes About Online Pharmacies & What You Should Know

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers in the U.S. who purchase their medications from Internet pharmacies to beware. The FDA is pointing to a study conducted by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) indicating that the majority of online pharmacies are fraudulent and selling counterfeit drugs that could potentially cause harm to consumers.

Shoppers are urged not to buy prescription medicine online; however, if people continue to purchase their medications online, the FDA would like consumers to protect themselves by adhering to the following list:

  • Only purchase from pharmacies located in the U.S.
  • Only purchase from pharmacies that have a licensed pharmacist available for consultations.
  • Only purchase from pharmacies that require a doctor’s prescription.
  • Only purchase from pharmacies that are licensed by your state board of pharmacy.

Also avoid pharmacies that:

  • Send spam or unsolicited emails selling cheap drugs
  • Ship medications worldwide
  • Offer prices that seem too good to be true – it generally is
  • Are located outside of the U.S. and ship from a foreign country
  • Are not licensed by a state board of pharmacy in the U.S.

This warning comes after many consumers bought a fake version of generic Adderall, a medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, on the Internet. This specific incident, other cases of counterfeit drugs purchased online, and the NABP study findings have caused the FDA to launch a nationwide campaign, BeSafeRx. In order to determine if your pharmacy is safe, visit www.FDA.gov/BeSafeRx.

If you have been harmed by online pharmacies or even your local pharmacy due to a pharmacy error, please call Kennedy Hodges at 888-526-7616 for a free consultation today.
