Up to $23.5 billion in counterfeit meds in the U.S. in 2004

Take a look at this June 7, 2006 article from ASU.

The post above here about shopping on the internet is a MUST READ. Without using the ONLY industry certification system approved by the FDA for U.S. and foreign pharmacies ( VIPPS ) you take an extreme chance even with pharmacies with U.S. addresses (because there are a large number of foreign pharmacies dealing in counterfeit drugs who actually have U.S. addresses... in order to get people to trust them.)

Also check out the list of drugs that have the same name as U.S. drugs but actually are a completely different drug in another country. It is important to actually get what was prescribed for you. :shock:
