Default How to Know Which Counterfeit Meds?

Hi, I am a mother of three. When the news of the spread of counterfeit medicines was released, I was literally shocked and I even panicked to the point that I even used herbal medicines for my children in fear of using the wrong drugs. How am I to know which one is a fraud? Can you please help me?

I can certainly understand the intensity of fear and mistrust the counterfeit drugs have inserted on your mind. But frankly speaking detecting dangerous or substandard drugs is generally difficult, until and unless a lab analysis is being done. What from the layman's term we can only check on the product manufacturing and expiry information. Any compromise in the sterile packaging of the drug should not be accepted.
