FDA Purchases Fake H1N1 Swine Flu Drugs

Consumers are being warned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration today to be cautious if purchasing prescription drugs through the Internet meant to detect, prevent, fix or completely cure the H1N1 swine flu virus. The FDA made the warning after purchasing and examining products that were sold as Tamiflu (oseltamivir) on suspicious websites.

It is important to make sure all drugs ordered online are from licensed websites, such as www.OrderOnlineDrugs.com, to limit the risk of fake and harmful drugs.

From one of the orders, the FDA received a suspicious envelope stamped from India.  It contained unlabeled, white tablets that were merely taped between pieces of paper. The medicine was analyzed by the FDA and contained talc and acetaminophen but no oseltamivir, the drug’s active ingredient. The website went offline after the order was received by the FDA.

Other products purchased from deceptive pharmacies did contain levels of oseltamivir, but were not approved by the United States.

“Products that are offered for sale online with claims to diagnose, prevent, mitigate, treat or cure the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus must be carefully evaluated,” Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D., Commissioner of Food and Drugs said. “Medicines purchased from Web sites operating outside the law put consumers at increased risk due to a higher potential that the products will be counterfeit, impure, contaminated, or have too little or too much of the active ingredient.”

When an outbreak occurs, drugs that may treat the disease become in high demand and are much more susceptible to imitation.

Tamiflu (oseltamivir phosphate) and Relenza (zanamivir) are the only two antiviral medications that are approved by the FDA for treatment of the 2009 H1N1 swine flu.
