via FDA warns against fraudulent, unapproved flu products – AOL News

The worst of the nation’s flu season might be over, but that isn’t stopping the Food and Drug Administration from warning Americans: Don’t fall prey to fraudulent or unapproved flu medicines.

The FDA issued a news release Friday reminding consumers that there are no legally marketed over-the-counter drugs to prevent or cure influenza. The severity of the year’s flu season, the agency said, raises new concerns about the risk of consumers buying unproven flu treatments or purchasing counterfeit antivirals from illegitimate online pharmacies.
