AMSTERDAM – The Health Inspectorate is warning people not to buy medicine on the internet. More and more of the substances being sold are fake or prohibited in the Netherlands. The inspectorate says that use of these drugs can be life threatening.

Many people opt to order over the internet because of the convenience or because they are embarrassed to buy medicine for erectile disorders, for instance.

People should only buy medicine from proper pharmacies, the inspectorate says.

The inspectorate also warned against following recommendations from internet doctors, who diagnose a patient without actually having seen them. This has already led to deaths, the inspectorate says.
