Spotting a fake pharmacy
Advise patients to avoid online pharmacies that
- Allow patients to purchase drugs by completing an online questionnaire instead of providing a valid prescription from their doctor.
- Offer illegal or non–FDA-approved drugs.
- Advertise deep discounts or send unsolicited e-mail offering cheap prices.
- Are located outside of and not licensed in the United States.
- Lack a physical address and telephone number.
