How to Avoid Fake Viagra

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), have busted eleven crime syndicate members who put thousands of lives at risk by selling fake viagra online. The gang was finally caught after a five year investigation led by the regulatory group. The MHRA believe that the popularity of social media today is helping criminals like these hit the jackpot more easily than ever before.

This is the largest gang bust regarding the illegal sale of viagra, with their sale of a whopping £10,000,000 worth of fake erectile dysfunction treatment, but it is clear there are many others on the go, with the agency shutting down almost 20,000 youtube videos directing men to dodgy sites selling fake treatments for impotence.

A representative from the agency warns that buying online is dangerous and men are putting their lives in jeopardy. There are however legitimate sites operating all over the country in the form of online clinics and online pharmacies, which are also regulated by the MHRA, and who operate both in a face to face and online capacity. The most important thing to look out for is the bodies regulating said sites such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and the evidence of the medical licenses of the doctors who are prescribing treatments. Considering viagra cannot be obtained without prescription, doctors, in an online capacity, must approve prescriptions based on an individual patient’s medical history. Have a look at The Online Clinic. This website is a good example of a legitimate provider as they clearly display their license and all doctors are shown along with their GMC registration number.

Fake viagra is sourced from all over the world and we do not know what it might contain. Despite the fact that impotence can signify underlying health issues that need to be assessed before the drug is prescribed, these fakes could be just as hazardous, or more dangerous than possible underlying concerns such as cardiovascular issues. In cases where there are other health concerns, fake Viagra can exacerbate conditions and put the lives of men in serious and potentially fatal danger.

Millions of fakes are seized every year and it’s not always viagra, but drugs like tramadol and valium are sold in a similar way. In desperation to get our hands on the least expensive drugs that are most easily obtained, we put our lives in serious jeopardy. As much as these criminals are manipulating their way to making millions at he cost of thousands of lives, we have to take responsibility for where we source our treatments. It is illegal to purchase prescription medication in this way, without a valid and authorized prescription from a licensed medical doctor. We are totally responsible for looking after ourselves. Cheap viagra is not the answer to impotence concerns but is the answer for dangerous consequences and fatal repercussions.

Advertisements flood the internet and social networking websites we use everyday. A small bit of research goes a long way in terms of separating the legitimate from the criminal. Good sites will be reputable and regulated and this will be clear from their homepage. A doctor will always have to issue the prescription and this will happen only if you have been asked for a medical history. When in doubt, call your regulatory authorities and ask.
