According to the US Drug Watchdog, “Based on what we know about these types of offshore pharmacies-they do not care about the quality of the products they sell, and a consumer is risking their life buying these types of off-shore medications.”
WASHINGTON, DC, April 20, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — According to the US Drug Watchdog, “We are appealing to all consumers in the United States to steer clear of any online pharmacy-where it is not obvious the company is based in the USA. A couple of obvious clues is when you call the ‘pharmacy’s’ toll free number-and the operators have an Eastern European or Indian Accent. Another clue is their medications are much more expensive than similar prescription drugs at Walgreens or Walmart.
“Based on what we know about these types of offshore pharmacies-they do not care about the quality of the products they sell, and a consumer is literally risking their life buying these types of off-shore medications. Another clue about these operations is they will mail the prescription to you via international mail—where it might take two or three weeks to get a delivery. Finally-we are warning US consumers to not use off-shore pharmacies-because when you give the customer service person your credit card number-you might become a victim of identity theft-or fraud.
“We want to emphasize in many instances the international ‘online pharmacies’ are run by organized criminals, and they do not care about customer satisfaction. Do not buy medications online-unless you can verify the company is based in the USA.” https://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is also warning US Consumers to be on the lookout for US based pharmacy errors and mistakes–side effects of a pharmacy medication error may include:
*Death (example a consumer with a severe heart condition is mistakenly given antibiotics. Some antibiotics can cause arrhythmia with a person with serious heart issues.)
*Hospitalization (example a pharmacist mistakenly gives a pregnant woman an epilepsy drug, the anticoagulant, or a drug to treat bipolar disorder). These types of drugs have all been linked to severe birth defects.
*Allergic reactions or a person having a severe reaction that could cause hospitalization.
*In most instances pharmacy prescription errors are caused by, labeling errors, mix-ups with another patient’s order, dispensing the wrong drug or wrong dosage, incompatible health conditions or adverse interactions with other medications.
Note to US consumers from the US Drug Watchdog: “If you possess proof your pharmacy gave you the wrong prescription or someone else’s prescription, please call us at 866-714-6466 – especially if you were injured by the mistake. We want to make certain you get compensated. However, as mentioned we will need proof of the mistake either being you still are in possession of the incorrect prescription, or your sales receipt indicates the error.” https://USDrugWatchdog.Com
