Is Your Virginia Doctor Buying Medicine From An Unapproved Source?

April 19, 2012 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cautioned doctors from across multiple US states to stop buying medicine from unlicensed or foreign suppliers with illegal prescription drugs, reports the Medscape Medical News.

Medical practices from 12 states who have reportedly bought illegal medication from such sources have received letters from the FDA, who urge them to purchase medication either directly from the manufacturer, or licensed US wholesale distributors whose licenses can be verified via the FDA’s website.

“These medical practices are putting patients at risk of exposure to medications that may be counterfeit, contaminated, improperly stored and transported, ineffective, and dangerous,” writes the FDA in an online statement this week.

“The receipt of suspicious or unsolicited offers from unknown suppliers should be questioned, and extra caution should be taken when considering such offers,” the FDA continues.

If you suspect criminal activity, please contact the FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations (OCI) at 1-800-551-3989 or visit the OCI Web site.

If you think you have been affected by defective drugs, please contact us today. Call us at 703-906-4229.
