Pharmacists Play a Critical Role in Protecting Patients From Illegal Online Drug Sellers

Pharmacy Times

Government and regulatory partner Libby Baney authored an article for Pharmacy Times titled “Pharmacists Play a Critical Role in Protecting Patients From Illegal Online Drug Sellers,” which discusses pharmacists’ role in combating illegal online drug sellers through educating patients on the risks of online drug retail.

Baney explains how the pandemic accelerated the demand for prescription medications due to the immediate need for online access to convenient, lower-cost medications. She adds that many online drug sellers operate illegally, in direct violation of state and federal laws.

Baney lists five things pharmacists can say to help protect patients from illegal online drug sellers:

  1. Whether buying from online or brick-and-mortar pharmacy, all prescription medications in the U.S. require a valid prescription. 
  2. Verify before you buy.
  3. Learn how to steer clear of “Bad Meds.”
  4. Use prescription services to save money and stay safe.
