According to the report by pharmacists, 50% of customers are picking up drugs online and this is partly due to the huge number of websites coming up, offering such services to those which have access to internet.

Most of the time, people resort to buying drugs online without prescriptions due to the convenience it offers. Some of them pick up drugs online to avoid the embarrassment of meeting a doctor.

On the face of it, these websites appear legitimate and authorized but there are many sites which are illegal and the risk of fake drugs and harmful medicines looms large.

The report clearly says that the risk of buying counterfeit drugs online is very high as fake medicines look similar to the real drug and can even dupe the best of pharmacists. The best way is to buy medicines from an authorized pharmacy with a proper prescription.
