Men suffering from Erectile Dysfunction are warned not to purchase ‘generic Viagra’

Men who suffer from erectile dysfunction often use the internet to shop around for the most suitable medication for them. Unfortunately, a lot of these men fall victim to illegally advertised ‘generic Viagra’. Pfizer owns the patent on sildenafil citrate (the active ingredient in Viagra), and will own it until 2019 thanks to the ruling of a U.S district judge in 2011. This ultimately means there is no such thing as a generic Viagra. The only Viagra on the market should be the Pfizer-manufactured diamond blue-coloured tablets.

What initially lures people to people to purchase these fake/generic Viagra tablets is obviously the apparent low price of them. With the UK in the midst of a recession, everybody wants to save a few pounds wherever they can. Unfortunately, medication is a serious matter. Some ingredients that have been discovered inside fake Viagra tablets include rat poison, talcum powder, cement powder, chalk and paint. Obviously if you are ingesting these highly dangerous tablets, you are risking your health and even your life. Is the low cost of the ‘generic’ medication really worth it? Some of the signs to look out for with illegal generic Viagra include:

. The price is a lot cheaper than Viagra, sometimes by as much as 70%.

. The drug is sold as a pill, but appears to differ from Viagra in colour or shape.

. Extended delivery times, occasionally up to three weeks. This is due to the drug being imported from a foreign country before it gets to you.

. The phony website lists ‘generic Viagra’ or ‘generic sildenafil citrate’.

. The website does not list any contact details, e.g. a telephone/fax number, company address, pharmacists, doctors, etc.

. A registered Pharmacy such as Medical Specialists Pharmacy, will have the GPhC green cross logo together with its Pharmacy number. This number can be checked to see if it does actually exist.

. The company registration and VAT number should both be clearly stated on the website. Both of these are a legal requirement.

Researchers at the University of California conducted a study in cooperation with Pfizer, whereby they managed to obtain ‘Viagra’ from 26 websites during a four day period in March 2011. Prices for the pills ranged from anywhere between $3.28 all the way to $33. Study author Dr Irwin Goldstein discovered that 90% of the non-prescription ‘Viagra’ pills were fake. Further tests uncovered ingredients such as rat poison, paint and a compound that is used in cement. Dr Goldstein noted that although sometimes the counterfeit drugs look convincingly authentic, the drugs are usually manufactured in construction sites, filthy warehouses and basements.
