Use, sale of counterfeit Botox persists despite warnings

Filed January 14th, 2013 Joshua Sophy

Despite warnings from the Food and Drug Administration about the dangers of using or purchasing counterfeit Botox, its use is still rampant across the U.S.

According to a press release from a leading Beverly Hills physician, the FDA issued five warnings last year to U.S. physicians about the availability of counterfeit Botox from Canada, specifically one supplier that markets the drug, and others, directly to doctors or through any number of Web sites.

The FDA even went so far as to contact physicians who they know purchased Botox from Canada Drugs either directly or from one of its more than 4,000 Web sites. The agency determined that these physicians purchased unapproved Botox and planned to dispense them to patients.

All Lots of prescription drugs must be approved by the FDA before they’re sold in the U.S. Recently, according to the release, the FDA has seized more than $10.5 million worth of counterfeit drugs, many which can be traced to the Canadian distributor.

Still, despite these numerous warnings and the threat that these drugs may not even be legitimate, physicians continue to dispense them to patients.
