Distinguish true from false
(1) Category: six types of medicines could be easily counterfeited, which have been considered as helpful to male genitals and kidneys, prostate diseases, diabetes, rheumatism, weight-losing, breasts-swelling, and such chronic diseases on intestines and enterons.
(2) Outer packing: medicines produced by national authorization mostly prefer simplicity instead of garishness or stimulation in the appearance styles, besides, their names will never be exaggerated. Those medicines, which are labeled with stimulating Chinese words such as "wang" (king), "ba" (domination), "shen" (spirit), "ke" (conquer) or "sha" (kill), are almost all bogus ones.
(3) Manners of distribution: generally speaking, medicines that need sales promotions such as symposiums, sodalities or recommendation are often bogus. Furthermore, the same thing happens when shoppes are set up in a drugstore, only empty boxes are put on the counter and medicines that are not what the customers originally want are provided. Also, those medicines, which are boasted as having wizardly efficacy, being outcome of the latest research and are recommended mightily to customers, must be bogus.
(4) Prices: the false medicines are extraordinarily expensive without any exception; whose price goes far beyond 70 or 80 Yuan per box. 90 percent of these medicines are not standard products, customers should be careful to be trapped by the common saying that "good things won't be cheap".

As for Tibetan medicines, those with labels of "Qingweiyingshizhunzi" and "Qingweixinshizhunzi" are absolutely bogus. In addition, if the address of the enterprise is not the same as that of the telephone on the label of the medicines, the medicines must be false, and so do the medicines that are marked without addresses of the producing enterprise but only the telephone numbers.
(6) According to the above-mentioned characteristics, official supervisory department reminds customers that they should stop to think over if necessary even if they are anxious for cure, buy Tibetan medicines from normal drugstores or hospitals through regular ways, and as for the doubtful medicines, they can query on internet, or turn to the local medical supervisor departments for investigation and information.
