Regardless of what many illegitimate websites want you to believe, there is absolutely NO GENERIC VERSION of VIAGRA™ available. Sellers who say this on their websites are offering a harmful and potentially deadly counterfeit.
To the average consumer it’s nearly impossible to differentiate the imposters from the real thing. These sites promise amazing results identical to VIAGRA. Even the pills and packaging look like the real thing, but what they deliver is far different. Pfizer Labs is the only manufacturer of VIAGRA, an oral therapy used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction(ED).
What is “generic” VIAGRA?
“Generic” VIAGRA is nothing more than a scam. Often labeled as “generic sildenafil citrate” or simply “generic VIAGRA,” the contents of these counterfeit pills are dangerous. Many contain ingredients harmful ingredients like shoe polish, leaded road paint, cement powder and even printer ink.
Where does “generic” VIAGRA come from?
Many of the largest producers of counterfeit VIAGRA™ are located outside of the United States, with many coming from China, the border towns of Mexico, Egypt and India. There is no way for the US to monitor the safety of these counterfeit Viagra pills since they are smuggled into the country with disguised packaging and labels. Raids have revealed that the "factories" where these counterfeit Viagra pills are made are extremely unsanitary and are not produced by physicians.
The truth about “generic” drugs available online – CIALIS, LEVITRA, VIAGRA
Telemedicine is playing an important role in lowering health care cost around the world. The development of the Internet and government regulations has made it more affordable and safer to obtain licensed prescription medications online. However, the evolution of the internet has also allowed unsafe, unregulated “generic” medications to have a greater exposure in the market. Typically a generic medication is not always bad, however in this case, there has been no ED (CIALIS™, LEVITRA™, VIAGRA™) “generic” FDA approved or regulated.
Unfortunately we are well aware of sites offering and marketing "generic" ED medications such as Viagra at extremely low prices, which creates confusion for customers. These sites offer ED “generics” that are imported from overseas in countries such as India, Mexico or China. The tablets are not manufactured in the US or by their legal manufacturer. It is unknown what ingredients are used to make these tablets, which can make them unsafe. Please be very wary of any site offering "generics" or soft tabs. Currently there is only one online pharmacy that is legally allowed to both prescribe and fullfil ED prescriptions like Viagra by the name of KwikMed.com.
But these “generics” are so much less expensive...I’m tempted to try them anyway
Peace of mind is something that can’t possibly be quantified with a price tag. It comes from knowing that the medication you are putting in your body is FDA approved and free of contaminants and fake ingredients. You have probably received countless unsolicited emails or seen offers for pills that have been greatly discounted. Many of these counterfeits come from other countries which do not have any regulation or, if they do, it does not compare to the strict regulations of the FDA.
While it may be tempting to purchase these counterfeit Viagra "discounted pills" online, the dangers far outweigh the monetary benefits. Generic versions of any of our ED medications (VIAGRA, CIALIS, LEVITRA) are not yet on the market. This is subject to change when the existing patents expire, but currently any “generic’ you come across on the Web today is not FDA approved and therefore may not be authentic medication.
