DEA Toll-Free Tip Line Launched

By December 17, 2004

Follow me on:

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency has launched a toll-free international hotline to report the illegal sale and abuse of pharmaceutical drugs. People now will be able to provide anonymous telephone tips about the diversion of prescription drugs into the illegal market by individuals and suspicious Internet pharmacies.

Callers will be able to make confidential reports by dialing toll free 1-877-RxAbuse (1-877-792-2873). In addition, such information can be reported online through the DEA web site.

A flashing notice on the DEA Webpage already enables people to report suspicious Internet pharmacies online. With a click of the mouse, visitors can pull up a simple form that allows them to get this information to DEA in a timely fashion. Since the web notice went up in June, we have received 810 tips.
