Hi, I am a mother of three. When the news of the spread of counterfeit medicines was released, I was literally shocked and I even panicked to the point that I even used herbal medicines for my children in fear of using the wrong drugs. How am I to know which one is a fraud? Can you please help me?

Re: How to Know Which Counterfeit Meds?

The only way to tell is to buy and test one. It is true that buying drugs online is NOT a good idea. Then again, I know people who have been, and do, and none have had a problem. In part I think it depends upon the drug. Drugs of abuse are most likely to be counterfeit such as "pain" pills, and drugs like viagra.

I wouldn't reply here but more and more I'm seeing articles like this one: How I Got the $84,000 Hepatitis C Drug For $1500 by Buying It From India

The fraud in the herbal medicine business is 100 times worse than the counterfeit drugs in the US. Actually the problem is buying drugs online or from other countries where they are not tested to the standards of the US drug market.
