Consumer Protection and Prescription Drugs
Authored By: Attorney General of Texas
Excerpt from Source at link below:
The Office of the Attorney General protects consumers of prescription drugs in a number of ways. Drug manufacturers must honestly disclose risks associated with drugs, and they may not deceptively claim benefits that have not been established by research. Manufacturers must also comply with antitrust laws in marketing and pricing of prescription drugs.
Of particular concern in recent years is the sale of prescription drugs over the Internet. Consumers must take all the usual precautions recommended for shopping online. But there are additional factors to consider when shopping for medications.
