About Us is an online distributor of generic drugs


These seem to be generic pharmaceuticals from factories in India but could be from anywhere. The site above is a DISTRIBUTOR, so it could take some work figuring out the origins of any drug.

While that link above shows certain certifications, they mean absolutely nothing, in light of recent findings.

Just yesterday (or the day before) there was an important article about a major pharmaceutical group there having been found to fake their data, etc, and other wise fraudulent practices.

Bottom line: those generics are often NOT at all what they are supposed to be.

I don't know how to find out if the pharmaceutical companies / factories involved in that (seem a big wide spread) is the same as some of the items at that site.

And some (parent) companies own other companies (subsidiaries) with different names / labels, so tracking a specific medicine may prove tricky. And, my guess is that this may not even the only company that is deceptive.

Leading generic drug maker faked test results for FDA approval

- CBS News - November 5, 2013

In 2004, Ranbaxy executive Dinesh Thakur was asked by his boss to investigate allegations of fraud at the company. Thakur quickly uncovered disturbing problems with the data required by the FDA to prove the effectiveness of Ranbaxy drugs. . . .

- full article and video at link above but also search other credible news sites and even the FDA's website for more specifics.

I have used them before. Product was in the exact packaging as if I purchased it here in the US.

Most people don't know that 80% of the drugs we purchase aren't even made in the US.

It pays to do your due diligence for buying drugs overseas. always tells you exactly where the drugs are being shipped from, and the manufacturer, I like the way they do business. I have researched Ciplo (India before purchasing their generics from UDS, and am impressed with their quality standards. I

I just heard today that companies that make generics are NOT libel for damages like brand name drugs are.

They are trying to get this changed.
