Alabama Pharmacy Board Defense Attorney – Pharmacist Hearing Upcoming? Call Today – Patients Desperate for Medicine Trade Supplies on Facebook – (866) 348-2889
Patients who cannot afford their medication, have run out of supplies, or do not have insurance coverage are trading medicines with Facebook friends. Patients either post a request indicating the medicine they need to their regular Facebook newsfeed or they join a Facebook group to arrange trades. For instance, someone whose insurance only covers Humalog® but feels Novolog® works best for their body will post a trade. NBC News reporters found postings to trade EpiPens®, asthma inhalers, and other prescription medications. Doctors and regulators state the dangers of trading medicines online include tampering, infection, privacy issues, and scams, notes NBC News.
