    PowerM***** busted by Feds

    Dudes! I saw on the news today that powerm*****/.com(Ft.Lauderdale, FL) was busted by the Feds and the owner was arrested.
    The repoter said the feds were quiet on what the bust was for, but he went on to speculate that it was steroids related.

    I think it's in the banned words section so it comes up like that.

    They do "legal" prescriptions. You must take a blood test before they will prescribe anything to you. Not sure if they look or even care about the blood tests but they do require it. $10 an iu to order gh from them. This may be a sign that the government has had enough of these "legal" online pharmacies and hrt clinics.

    If you live in Florida please keep us posted.

    It is always expensive when you can get it legally.

    It doesn't appear that the operation was 100% legal, unless they got raided for tax evasion or child porn.

    I doubt the dea does raids for tax evasion or porn. I think they were compounding there own stuff that wasnt approved by the fda and got busted. I cant seem to get my salesperson on the phone, but when i do I will update!

    I live near them, my friend used to work for them and he still knows employees there. I was told it was due to they are a pharmacy and make their own drugs. They have had several people get sick from their drugs and they were looking into if they were selling drugs not yet FDA approved. This was also on channel 7 news last night and this morning. They took tons of evidence, computers, files... They also do things like sell without blood tests or physicals. I called them once and they were going to sell wini over the phone that day without anything, just a questioanaire, granted this was about a year ago but this stuff catches up sooner or later.

    I just spoke to a guy at another HRT clinic from Florida (that uses this site to advertise.) He asked me if I had had a recent blood test done...I told him I had...for PowerMedica. He said "OMG...did you hear what happened?" He told me they were in trouble because "people were getting sick, I mean hospital sick, from their drugs. It wasn't because of the business they were in, because HRT is completely legit. When enough people get sick from your drugs you start to get looked at by the FDA." He said they were only in the compounding business for a year and that he heard they were underdosing their stuff, as well. He said he lives right down the street from them and that he had never heard anyone say anything nice about the guy that owns PowerMedica.

    I know to take all of that with a grain of salt because this guy works for a competitor in the same state and he's trying not to make HRT look bad...

    Alright, here is what my guy at PM said about the whole deal. "We are under inspection for a license renewal. We were not 'busted'. They tend to keep a eye on pharmacies like us, and this happens alot. We are open for business." Take that for what its worth, but I did call and actually talk to somebody and could of placed an order if needed. I do understand that in all likelyhood probably wouldnt give me the whole story. So there you go!

    They got in trouble for compounding. Let me cut and paste from another thread. I posted this yesterday when none of us knew PM had been busted.


    -------------
    I did some research into this. Compounding pharmacies are governed by state legislature and essentially slip unnoticed through the FDA's fingers. Each state's indiviual health board is responsible for auditing these facilities, and in the states where the compounding pharms reside that supply for PowerMedica, (fl, al, co, tn) they are almost completely unregulated, so the quality could be great.. but it also could be ****e. These drugs are not technically approved by the fda but are given what is called "enforcative leniency" To be quite frank, with the fda restructure that's going on i don't know how much longer this will be in the border between legal and illegal.


    compounding is usually used to get around allergies to fillers, to suspened something in a liquid instead of a pill, or semantics of this nature. Compounding pharmacies are not liscenced to supply their own generic versions of existing products, or products that aren't fda approved.

    on the bright side, you can always just get human grade from these companies instead of going for the "compounded" products.

    ---------------

    I imagine Oasis is probably cutting all ties to its "compounders" at this very moment.

    Hmmmm..... I'd wait a while bro. There's a real good chance you were talking to a cop. "Yeah, sure man. We're open. Come on in or I'll take your order over the phone. Let's get some personal info first."
    I'd wait.

    You should have asked him if they always take the owner away in handcuffs when they renew their license.

    Curious as to what the story was, I emailed the guy I've spoken to at this company. He said that the owner wasn't arrested...that the person arrested was an employee who brought marijuana to work and tried to run out the back door with it. He said they were there primarily to check records, that they did that, and that they are back in business and up and running. He said something about Broward officers getting their drugs there...but I didn't catch how that related to the "meeting."

    He told me that another online story is more accurate:

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/loc...,3388703.story

    Says right in the article that officials said they "checked records."

    Guy I talked to said they were totally legit, that they proved it yesturday, and they are getting all of their stuff back (drugs, computers, etc.) He said they aren't going anywhere...

    Do you guy's realize that all the guy's that get busted are one's who sell locally?? Really if he would have just went through the Internet, it would have been hard to get an address out of it. Plus, it they do try do an internet bust it get's messy I would think. Breaking into cyber rights would leave their ass wide opon for a law suit in which they would loose $$. The patriot act can only be used to prevent terroism, and if they start abusing the law on non terroist things, it will be overturned soon. Here's a reason why fed's should forget about UGL in the US. 1. Bust one another one replaces it. 2. Its not of national secerity and nobody's dieing unlike rec drugs. 3. Bust all domestic and then everyone goes international, and this added pressure on Customs will be a dissration from terrorism. So their should not be a lof of pride with federal agents and DEA in busting these things cause their really not doing anything good, unlike the rec drug busts that save thousands of kid's lives.

    Updated story...seems that someone from the FDA placed orders over the internet and the name given for the prescribing physician wasn't a real name.

    The Internet never got them, their dumbasses doing a meeting with a person got them busted. If a peson just sells over the internet and never using a address, it makes it a tough bust. Cause then they will need to using hacking records to show proof. The FDA cannot just make warrents at random and bust into places either. It's always best to make it as miserable as possable for them to make the bust. Tough enough werer their own ass might be on the line in order to make the bust. Cause as far as I know hacking is illigal without a warrent.

    I was not saying "the internet got them" the way you take it to mean...I'm saying the fact that they write scripts without face-to-face doctor-patient meetings appears to be the problem (per the article.) To me, the article indicates that the whole "remote HRT" (my description) thing was called into question...

    Sponsor Update

    As a Representative for Oasis I would like to clear up things regarding to Powermedica and our company. First we recieved calls asking if we were raided and I assure you we were not. This is intended for individuals that are not local to where Powermedica is located and have not read the paper or seen the news. Powermedica was back to business yesterday. The owner was not arrested and did yesterday let news crews tour his facility which was broadcast on the nightly news. They also open themselves to higher pressure do to being an actual pharmacy which compounds their own drugs. The FDA looks very closely at drugs that are being made. They look for certain things like strength, labeling, correct amounts are in vials. It was to our understanding that this was not happening within their facility after speaking to people associated with Powermedica (employees and patients). Also from our understanding people had experienced serious side effect from certain medication prescribed by Powermedica.

    As printed on today's Sun Sentinel paper lists Powermedica as prescribing medication under a false doctor's license that does not exist to practice medicine in Florida.
    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/loc...a-news-broward Also lists the pharmacy as purchasing hormones from Asia which are not FDA approved. It is though unclear that if they were prescribing without blood work being actually recieved or a physical but when you are a competitor you shop other companies that are in the same business and may it be noted that when shopped they were willing to send out Stanozolol without requiring a blood test and simply with a Medical History. It was also rumored that individuals being prescribed were under age.

    I can assure that we will try to keep you updated on the current situation at hand and value your opinions. We also do hope Powermedica the best of luck in their current situation.

    To answer any previous questions we do not prescribe to any individual under the age of 25 years. We also require a current blood test to be done along with a completed physical and Medical History. Finally No Medication will be sent with out our Doctor's approval upon review of these documents.

    Final note rumors stated in this post are simply that rumors and have no physical proof attached to them. We are simply stating what is being said in the community that surrounds us and clearing up rumors They are a competitor but also a colleague in the industry of HRT Programs and Do wish them only the best to succeed.
