Medicine bought over the Internet from foreign sources, from storefront businesses that offer to buy foreign medicine for you, or during trips outside the United States, may not be safe or effective. These medicines may present health risks and FDA cannot ensure the safety of medicine from these sources. FDA cannot help you if you have problems with medicine you get from outside U.S. regulation and oversight.
