5,000 Web Sites Selling Prescription Drugs Outside of Pharmacy Laws and Practice Standards
Date:12/28/2009

icines purchased over the Internet from sites that conceal their physical address are counterfeit.
  • Nearly half (2,216) offer foreign or unapproved drugs. Because these drugs are not subject to the quality and safety requirements of those approved for sale in the US -- or even of those approved for sale in other developed countries -- their safety and efficacy are unknown.
  • Nearly 20% (956) do not have secure sites that protect patients' personal and financial information.
  • Internet pharmacies listed as Recommended on the NABP Web site have been accredited by the VIPPS(R) (Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites) program or, for veterinary sites, the Vet-VIPPS program. These Internet pharmacies have successfully completed NABP's rigorous 19-point criteria evaluation and on-site inspection to ensure they adhere to the highest standards for pharmacy practice and patient safety.

    "Patients looking to purchase medications over the Internet would be well-advised to consider who is on the other end of the transaction," President Schnabel says. "Virtually anyone with a computer and a bank account can sign on to become an affiliate of a rogue network, set up a Web site using a template, and start selling drugs online. Bearing in mind that these affiliate network programs are behind thousands of Web sites selling prescription drugs, it follows that the operators of most Internet drug outlets have no knowledge of or concern for patient safety."

    Knowledge is key to protecting the public from these high-tech drug dealers. NABP continues to research Web sites selling prescription drugs and report its findings to state and federal regulators, and to educate health care professionals and the public on the dangers of buying prescription drugs online, thereby empowering patients to make informed choices. More information is available in the Internet Pharmacies section of the NABP Web site, www.nabp.net.
