If you’re ordering a drug from a store you found online, you just might be paying for:

(Dr. Hamburg) “Unapproved drugs, drugs that are counterfeit, or contaminated, or expired.”

Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg says they’re beginning a new campaign to warn you about the dangers of online parmarcies, most of which, she says are fake.

Hamberg says, stick to pharmacies based in the U.S. that require a doctor’s prescription.
