Online medicines warning

If they are counterfeit, they are not manufactured to the appropriate standards and they may not contain appropriate levels of the active ingredients and, indeed, many contain ingredients that pose serious risk to your health,” says Darragh Connolly, community pharmacist and president of the IPU. safemedicines.org/2012/ 03/no-drugs-at-all.html
