Drug country of origin?
Added 1 Dec 2013:
I am referring to prescription drugs from pharmacies,such as walgreens, CVS, Walmart Kroger ,etc. These drugs come from China,India, And other foreign countries.If u don't believe demand an answer from your pharmacist. Dosages are not consistent and each lot is NOT FDA inspected.
Any drug sold in the united states must pass FDA standards. You never know if the dosing is truly consistent because they can vary a tiny bit, according to standards. That's any med, even if made here. They are made in other countries for the same reason most of our jobs here were lost, the greedy wanted more money and the people work cheaper there. All drug companies that are from another country have to maintain a presence in the usa and answer to the FDA. There is no reason to suspect that there is a problem with a medication no matter where it is made.
