FDA Warns Against Some Online Canadian Drugs

If you've thought about getting your drugs online from Canada, beware of counterfeit drugs that have appeared in the market:
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase prescription drugs from websites that have orders filled by Mediplan Prescription Plus Pharmacy or Mediplan Global Health in Manitoba, Canada following reports of counterfeit versions of prescription drug products being sold by these companies to U.S. consumers. FDA is investigating these reports and is coordinating with international law enforcement authorities on this matter.
The link above includes some of the websites using Mediplan drugs. Several cardiovascular drugs were found to be counterfeit, including Lipitor, Crestor, Zetia, Diovan and Hyzaar, among others.
