Gardaí from the Garda National Drugs Unit wish to highlight a recent operation aimed at illegal prescription drugs that are being sold over the internet.

Illegal prescription drugs like mood stabilisers, painkillers, weight loss products, medicines for erectile dysfunction, anabolic steroids, teeth whitening products, painkillers, cholesterol lowering medication and insulin are being bought over the Internet.  The medicines are often branded and packaged identically to legitimate brands.  They are acutely dangerous and highly addictive and in many cases are counterfeit. Often the medicine doesn’t contain the active ingredient or has the wrong dose and so pose a serious health risk. The suppliers are often organized criminal groups.

There are 360 deaths as a result of misuse of drugs each year. This number of fatalities increases to around 700 when you add mixing drugs with alcohol. A lot of the problem lies in the misuse of pharmaceutical drugs.
