Now, a 'don't fall for this' warning

One of my standard Google alerts found a link - which I won't share - that purportedly offered a medication called Aggrenox without a prescription.

That's one of the drugs - similar to Plavix - that is a potential stroke prevention tool. I was on Plavix for years and on Aggrenox for a short time before the heart procedure took me off prescription drugs entirely.

But criminal Web sites and e-mails offering potentially dangerous drugs sans prescription abound. They prey on people who need actual medical attention.

You shouldn't self-prescribe drugs like Aggrenox or Plavix. Ever.
