DEA Warns that Pills Purchased Outside of a Licensed Pharmacy are Illegal, Dangerous, and Potentially Deadly


Facts About Counterfeit Pills

  • Criminal drug networks are mass-producing fake pills and falsely marketing them as legitimate prescription pills to deceive the American public.

  • Counterfeit pills are widely available, and DEA and its law enforcement partners are seizing deadly fake pills at record rates.

  • Counterfeit pills are more lethal than ever before. The number of DEA-seized counterfeit pills with fentanyl has jumped nearly 430 percent since 2019. DEA lab testing reveals that 2 out of every 5 pills with fentanyl contain a potentially lethal dose.

  • The only safe medications are ones prescribed by a trusted medical professional and dispensed by a licensed pharmacist.
