Internet medications-You Get What You Pay For

July 25, 2012

Internet ordered Viagra is rarely genuine. The active ingredient concentration of the Internet ordered Viagra was 30% to 50% of the label claim, and of the 4 online pharmacies claiming to be Canadian, none ship their medication from Canada. If you decide to order your medications online, you need to be aware that you may be getting an inferior product. Caveat emptor – let the buyer beware.

Online Viagra May Be Hazardous To Your Heart and To Your Health

December 12, 2010

It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, between the ages of 20-90, the

chances are if you’re electronically connected, you will have received a message asking you if you want to last longer in bed or if you would like to have a longer more powerful erection.

 

It is estimated that one in ten men over the age of 35 has bought prescription medicines online. This certainly has an appeal to many men.  It allows them to make the purchase cheaply sometimes at 1\3 of the cost of the drug from a pharmacy.  The man can obtain the medication discreetly and with only the most rudimentary of health checks. But purchasing Viagra over the Internet doesn’t come without risks. A recent report by Pfizer suggested 90 per cent of the drug bought this way is fake and may contain toxic ingredients such as rat poison and paint and paracetamol – which if unwittingly combined with paracetamol-based cold or headache remedies could cause liver failure.  Also, drugs like Viagra are contraindicated with certain medications like nitroglycerin and can result in a fatal heart attack if a man takes Viagra, develops chest pain and then takes a nitroglycerin tablet.  Remember the movie, “XXXX”, when Jack Nicholson took both medications and ended up in the emergency room?

 

Bottom Line:  You get what you pay for.  Better and safer to get your medications from a reputable source and at the advice from your physician.  There’s no erection worth a heart attack!
