the WHO estimated the counterfeit drug trade was a $431 billion a year industry and growing.

Well, there you go Big Pharma - you say you have to have high prices to recoup your costs, but if you lower your prices you can increase your income by $431 billion.

How long has Viagra been out?  You'd think there'd be generics by now.

If the only way you can get an erection is by taking a little blue pill, then you either have a poor imagination or the Fates are telling you to stop trying to have sex you impotent pathetic bastard.

I've used an online pharmacy for over 15 years. Its HQ is purportedly in the UK but shipments come from Vanuatu, typically 7-8 days after ordering.  Stuff's the same as Walgreens only 70% cheaper.

Fake Viagra, have a pole-vaulting good time when you become your partner's Lancelot.

Safe? Hardly.
Effective? Um, no.

Been taking some stuff from India for the past six years. Works just the same as Phizer. The cost of Phizer, just less than $30 for a 100 mg pill. Half a tab works fine. The cost of the stuff from India, 39 cents a pill.  Still half a tab works fine. Can't find anything negative about the company on the net. Sales calls come from Florida.

Have you ever noticed a display of purported male enhancement/libido enhancers/sex pills at a gas station or similar store? All those pills with funny names like Libigrow, Horny Goat Weed, etc.?  Well one of them, the Night Bullet, was recalled for being made of two sildenafil/Viagra analogues.   It's still up in a few stores around here, unless it's a new version.  It's pretty wild what is out there being pressed or capped into supplements, workout products, and things like K2, Spice, and bath salts.

I read a book about the spam industry, and as an aside they looked into the "pharmacies" that use the spammer services and found, to their surprise, that they have a ridiculously high customer satisfaction record.

A lot of them  have to use Visa/MC to process payments, and if they get more than a few charge backs (people requesting refunds) they get cutoff from the credit card companies.

Basically, they found that - at least in the ones that they tested - the drugs were as advertised and they'll kiss your ass to make sure you're happy.

YMMV

/don't remember the name of the book, sorry - it was written by a IT security guy.

It's not about getting one, it's about keeping one long enough so the director gets all of the shots he wants.

There was a lady here who was selling herbal remedies for diabetic patients.
She's interview them, ask them about their health and how long they've had the diabetes, what type of medicine they take and how many tablets.
She'd then customize the herbal remedy to suit each patient.
It worked like a charm.

Until she got caught grinding and adding the diabetes pills into the herbal remedy to the same ratio the patients were taking it.
She was of course selling it for a much higher price since it was a "safe and natural" alternative.

Viagra is a trade name from Pfizer, so any generic would be "counterfeit" if labeled "Viagra".  The chemical/genetic name is sildenafil citrate, which any company could manufacture and market.  ...sort of like "tissues" are only counterfeit if they're called falsely labeled with the brand name "Kleenex".

Just order your boner pills from a country that's decent about production standards, instead of China.
