Medical treatments and medication are being manufactured in an attempt to treat people with mental illness, anger, anxiety and panic disorders, according to a report from ABC News.
The report said that people with the conditions are taking these medications in an effort to help them calm down, reduce stress, and to treat chronic pain, but many are not getting the help they need.
The drugs, which include painkillers and antidepressants, are often manufactured in China, with counterfeit drugs often being imported from other countries.
The report said the fake medications can cost between $300 and $2,500 for a generic drug, while counterfeit pills can cost $500 to $3,000.ABC News obtained documents obtained by ABC News from the FDA detailing the fake pharmaceuticals.
The FDA found more than 4,000 pills in more than 5,000 cases, mostly from China.
Some were branded as “cure” pills and others as “non-cure,” the FDA said.
The fake pills are often made to look like pills that are actually generic versions of an FDA-approved drug.
Some of the pills were made to resemble prescription medications, which would be more easily prescribed.
Some of the fake pills also were made with labels that made it appear that they had been approved by the FDA.
The products have been found in pharmacies, emergency rooms, community health centers, and even in Walmart and other stores.
The counterfeit pills are usually given to people in a panic attack, according the FDA, but some people have been given them without realizing they were fake.
Some patients have been told to go to the hospital and ask for the fake medication to help alleviate their symptoms.
ABC News reported that in the past, the FDA has warned that counterfeit medications may be used as a substitute for medical care for people who cannot get their medications from their doctors.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
