Be Careful When Buying Viagra Online

Advice & Tips, Myths & Truths

As anybody who surfs the internet regularly knows, it contains a pot pourri of information and opportunities, both good, bad and downright ugly.

Buying Viagra Online

The theme of this article is not to put people off of doing their research into erectile dysfunction (ED)and seeing where it can be purchased online, but just to inject some notes of caution. This is because my recent excursions have revealed some articles, features or advertisements, some claimed from qualified medical practitioners, that are at best clumsy, and at worst misleading and even dangerous. As someone who spent many years leading a team investigating complaints into the National Health Service, I have been delighted, but occasionally appalled at what has been written about ED and its treatment.

While many of the websites are absolutely fine, and have been dispensing advice, prescriptions and Viagra quite legitimately and successfully for a while, others may not be so upstanding (to use an ED term!)

Here are some examples I have come across:

Viagra Tablet

Viagra (and Levitra and Cialis) is a long-term cure for ED. That is misleading. If you use an oral ED pill like Viagra in accordance with the instructions and as advised by your doctor, it can ensure that when you engage in sexual activity you will achieve a penile erection and have satisfactory sex. But it is not a cure as such. It does not change your body permanently, and each time you want to treat your ED, you will need to take another Viagra pill. It may seem like semantics, but a friend of mine believed that a single “course” of 4xViagra would mean that he would never have ED problems again.

Secondly, that Viagra not only has a physical effect, it is also an aphrodisiac, and makes men actively seek out partners and be better in bed! While Viagra and its effects may give a man some confidence, it does not boost libido or act as an aphrodisiac.

Finally, beware of cheap imitations. “Herbal” ED remedies have names sounding like the big three- Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, but they do not contain the key ingredients of the proper ED drugs, or contain them in such small proportions that they will not have the same effect. I have tested this myself, and ordered some “low cost generic Viagra” that seemed too good to be true. It was. It came from the Indian sub-continent and when analysed, was 100% fake. However showed them to my General Practitioner who said she was impressed by how realistic they appeared to the eye to the real thing.

So the lessons are:

1. Be careful when surfing ED sites on the ‘net, don’t believe hook, line and sinker everything you read.

2. I you are going to buy Viagra online, make sure it’s a reputable site. Perhaps buy a small amount first to check it is kosher.

Fake ED pills are still being uncovered all over the world!

3. Always get a medical consultation before starting to take Viagra or any other ED drug. While they are safe for the majority of people, in certain circumstances they should not be taken. Consult a medical professional!
