29 October 2017

Products available on international websites are not regulated by the TGA. We advise consumers not to order medicines, including dietary supplements and herbal preparations, over the Internet unless the consumer knows exactly what is in the preparation and has checked the legal requirements for importation and use in Australia. For more information refer to: Buying medicines and medical devices over the internet.
