Buying Medicine from Outside the U.S. is Risky Business. It's a Gamble You Can't Afford to Take.

This print public service announcement is also available in PDF format (267KB).

If you buy foreign medicine from an Internet site, from a storefront business that offers to order foreign medicine for you, or during visits outside the United States, you are taking chances with your health. The FDA cannot guarantee the safety of medicine bought from outside the United States.

Don’t play games with your health.
