    I always got what I ordered and I would know it if it was not.  Adulterated meds can occur anywhere, even in the US. This is exactly the big pharma propaganda I was talking about:

    there is a very high chance that the product you obtain will be adulterated.
    Nope.
    •  Where have you ordered from? (0+ / 0-)

      Macau? Romania? China?  

      Seriously, chances are that you will NOT be receiving what you think you are getting.   These operators are sophisticated enough on occasion to fool the FDA, do you really think you can out-smart them?

        exceptionalism, foisted by big pharma PR, Inc.  There have been plenty of such problems in the US too. 76,000 hits on the google search string "recalls site:fda.gov".  Not to mention intentional, felonious dilution of expensive cancer meds, particulate matter in injectables, and the sterile wipes that were not sterile and caused more than a few cases of septicemia, all in the US from US sources.

        I would never buy meds or even foodstuffs from China, and I wonder how much Chinese product ends up in our multivitamins.

        I would know if my meds were not working and you can believe it or not as you choose.

        I think anybody with the will and money can fool the FDA, hell they just hire the 'regulators' or the 'healthcare industry' staffs the FDA.

      I personally don't think it should be illegal to order drugs from "overseas" - if people wish to take a chance with their health, I have no problem with that.

      In the same vein, I chafe under current regulations that prohibit me from running a genetic testing center out of my garage.
