AccessRx.com Creates Featured Article to Inform Americans About the Dangers of Buying Fake Medications Online
Research shows a steady increase in the number of consumers buying medications online. As internet purchases increase, so do the dangers. The FDA and AccessRx.com are warning consumers about fake medical websites that often send fake or harmful medications.
(PRWEB) October 03, 2012
The FDA says one in four Americans shop for prescriptions online, a number that is projected to increase over the next five years. As a trusted source of prescription medications, AccessRx.com has seen this increase and joins the FDA’s campaign to educate the public about fraudulent sites.
Often lured in by cheap prices and sleek looking sites, consumers purchase medications from what appears to be safe, legitimate websites. However, the majority of the time consumers are sent counterfeit medications, expired prescriptions or medications with harmful ingredients added. Remember that counterfeit Stendra is extremely harmful and AccessRx.com provides you with genuine FDA approved medications unlike other sites. Those sites are often operated overseas and are extremely tough for authorities to track down.
It’s estimated that 97 percent of online pharmacies aren’t following state and federal laws. In an effort to keep consumers safe, the FDA has launched BeSafeRx, a campaign that aims to teach people how to find a reputable online pharmacy.
"Our goal is to increase awareness," FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg told The Associated Press, "not to scare people away from online pharmacies. We want them to use appropriate pharmacies."
AccessRx.com has a fourteen-year history as a safe and secure online facilitator of prescription medications. “We believe AccessRx.com is the gold standard of online prescription medication shopping,” AccessRx.com Marketing Director Rich Bernstein said. The site offers name brand, FDA-approved medications through a licensed company that is located in the United States.
“AccessRx.com has worked hard for more than a decade to ensure consumers have the best possible experience when they visit our site,” Bernstein said. “We want consumers to know about the unsafe tactics other sites are using so people can protect themselves from taking potentially harmful medications.”
