The FDA cautioned physicians to avoid offers that sound too good to be true, and to question aggressive marketing tactics and major discounts on prescription drugs suggesting that the medicines may be stolen, fake, substandard or unapproved.

The number of Rogue Wholesale Drug Distributors selling fake or unapproved prescription drugs in the U.S. market is growing…

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned that doctors need to:

  • be vigilant when purchasing medicines
  • verify that their supplier is licensed by the state
  • know the source for prescription drugs.
