Risks of Purchasing Stimulants Online

97% of online pharmacies are considered unsafe according to the FDA. Prescription drugs that are purchased from rogue and illegitimate online pharmacies may be tampered with and contain dangerous ingredients that could be fatal.

The Drug Enforcement Administration recently issued an alert around an increase in overdose deaths related to counterfeit fentanyl. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 100x stronger than morphine – as little as 2 milligrams can lead to a fatal overdose. The DEA has seized hundreds of thousands of counterfeit pharmaceutical pills, including those marketed as stimulants, which look like real prescription drugs.

Stimulant medications purchased from illicit pharmacies or sellers are often counterfeit and can lead to a serious and potentially fatal health risk. These counterfeit, or fake pills, can either contain the wrong ingredients or no active ingredients. It is also very common for these pills to contain potentially fatal levels of ingredients such as fentanyl.

Why stimulants are typically prescribed

Prescription stimulant medications are generally used to enhance brain activity and are commonly prescribed to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. They increase the activity of the brain chemicals dopamine and norepinephrine, which will result in alertness, attention, and energy and can be used as a treatment for ADHD and narcolepsy for adults. Some may take natural stimulants in order to improve their mental performance but if not properly prescribed, can lead to dangerous side effects. Please see the side effects section for more information.
