Contrast this with America's counterfeit pills, such as these "Adderall" tablets made by Mexican cartels and trafficked into the U.S. They actually contain meth as the active ingredient.

So while you may receive counterfeit medication from overseas, it's still safer than buying prescription black market pills in the U.S. or Canada due to the rampant problems with fentanyl and other dangerous adulterants in our drug supply. This goes equally for the dark web and your local drug dealer. If you don't personally see your dealer walk out of the pharmacy with the prescription, assume it's fake. People are dying from counterfeit meds at an alarming rate here, and no one's immune. Celebrities including Prince, Shock G, Lil' Peep, Tom Petty, Mac Miller & Michelle McNamara died from accidental fentanyl overdoses in recent years.
The only way to be 100% certain what's in your drugs is to test them. There are labs that will do this for you if you send in a sample, or you can buy a reagent testing kit for yourself. There is no foolproof way to "eyeball" it and know for certain that what you've got is the real deal, but using the tips above you can rule out the obvious counterfeits.
