If you are considering shopping online for your prescription medicine, the Food and Drug Administration has a warning: Don’t be deceived! Ninety-seven percent of online pharmacies are fraudulent and could put your health at risk.

While there are pharmacy websites that operate legally on the internet, providing convenience, privacy and safeguards for purchasing medicines, there are many more “rogue” websites that sell potentially dangerous drugs. These sites may even look professional and legitimate, but offer drugs that have not been checked for safety or effectiveness, are unapproved, or that contain dangerous ingredients.
