Many Internet sites that sell medicine are not legitimate pharmacies. Make sure a Web site is a state-licensed pharmacy that is located in the United States. Find your state’s contact information from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) at www.nabp.info.

Some sites display the Seal of the Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites™ (VIPPS) Program. For a list of state-licensed pharmacies that carry the Seal, go to www.vipps.info.
