Raising awareness : avoiding unauthorized health products online.: H139-45/2022E-PDF

"Buying health products, such as drugs, online from non-legitimate sources may pose serious health risks. You may receive unauthorized drugs that have not been reviewed for safety or efficacy by Health Canada. In addition, the drugs you receive may be counterfeit, have no active ingredients, contain unknown or wrong ingredients, dangerous additives, or be past their expiry date. Even if these drugs do not harm you directly or immediately, your condition may get worse without effective treatment. If you are planning to buy drugs online, Health Canada has information on the risks of buying drugs over the internet"--Page [1].
