In addition to health risks, the FDA warns the illegally operating pharmacies pose non-health-related risks to consumers, including the possible exposure to credit card fraud, identity theft, and computer viruses. The FDA encourages consumers to report suspected criminal activity to the FDA's Office of Criminal Investigations.

Levitra Super Force and Viagra Super Force: While Levitra (vardenafil) and Viagra (sildenafil) are FDA-approved medicines used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), Levitra Super Force and Viagra Super Force are not FDA-approved products and claim to contain dapoxetine. The FDA has not determined the safety or efficacy of dapoxetine. People with certain heart conditions should not take ED medicines containing vardenafil or sildenafil. There are also potentially dangerous drug interactions or serious adverse effects with these drugs, such as loss of hearing or vision.

Clozapine: FDA-approved Clozaril (clozapine) is used to treat severe schizophrenia and is associated with potentially fatal agranulocytosis, a severely low (and dangerous) white blood cell count that can predispose patients to serious, life-threatening infections. To minimize potential risks, consumers who are prescribed FDA-approved Clozaril must be enrolled in a registry that ensures regular monitoring of their blood counts.

Protect Yourself

In addition to health risks, the FDA warns the illegally operating pharmacies pose non-health-related risks to consumers, including the possible exposure to credit card fraud, identity theft, and computer viruses.

The FDA encourages consumers to report suspected criminal activity at www.fda.gov/oci.

The FDA provides consumers with information to identify an illegal pharmacy website and advice on how to find a safe online pharmacy through BeSafeRx: Know Your Online Pharmacy.
