This is urgent information for anyone who bought Ambien, Ativan, Lexapro, and Xanax over the Internet. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), haloperidol, a powerful anti-psychotic drug, is being falsely sold online under other brand names. Many customers have taken the pills in question and experienced such adverse symptoms as difficulty breathing, muscle spasms, and muscle stiffness.
The haloperidol arrives in packages postmarked from Greece, with the drugs mislabeled or unlabeled. The pills are small, round, and colored either yellow or white. Haloperidol is traditionally used as an active ingredient in the production of a prescription drug used to treat schizophrenia.
