Patients who buy drugs through mail-order companies could be rolling the dice with their health says Dr. Deborah C. Peel, a physician and founder of the nonprofit Patient Privacy Rights.  There’s a high probability in many cases that these drugs are counterfeit Peel added.

“And you don’t ever know because the fraudulent tablets look just like the real ones,” says Peel.

She says ordering from companies that specialize in mail-order sales that are not affiliated with a legitimate insurance company, especially from foreign countries, can be very risky. Not only could the quality be questionable, it could also be illegal.

“But people are desperate because we’re being so grossly overcharged for medication,” she says.

Peel says you can lessen costs by buying generic. You can spot it by: the best thing to do is to keep away from buying drugs from foreign or obscure pharmacies.  And if you decide to go with the mail-order route, just stay with U.S.-based companies because if it’s a U.S. company, you can report the health care fraud to the Food and Drug Administration while if it’s a foreign company, there’s little that can or will be done
