I am 10 month post op robotic prostatectomy. Not fairing very well in the erection department. I just got a vacuum device and was advised to use it in conjunction with Viagra. Five 100 mg tablets cost me $75.00. I have seen sites that offer the product for a much lower price. Some require a Doctors Rx, others don't. I am more wary of the ones that don't require a written Rx but am a little skeptical either way. A Canadian pharmacy offers generic Viagra from India for about $5.75 each and brand name Viagra from the European Union for about $12.50 each (not a lot of savings here).
I once saw a TV documentary about fake pills that essentially contained the material that wallboard is made from and were such good copies that even trained pharmacists were easily fooled. I don't want to waste my money.
What experience have any of you guys had buying Viagra online? Your input would be greatly appreciated.
I'm eight weeks out of DaVinci surgery and am very thankful that Levitra helps me 100%. I purchased generic Levitra (~$7 ea. w/shipping) through Canada Meds from India and have no problems ... works as good as the expensive ones (~$17 ea.). I've been using Canada Meds for about five years and in each instance have never been disappointed. Can't vouch for some of the other Canadian companies, but I have complete faith in Canada Meds.
Good Luck into the future!
I'll back up what Phil says. Alldaychemist has a very good reputation among prostate cancer patients who have used them. Because of patent problems generic cialis cannot be imported into the US, but there is no problem with generic Levitra and generic Viagra imports. We in Australia have no problems with bringing in any of the three. Although ADC asks if you have a doctors prescription they seem not to worry if you have or not. I have had fellow patients in the US tell me they have obtained the Cialis generic by telling ADC it was for consumption outside of the country(holidaying in Mexico perhaps?)and this seems good enough for them. They use various Indian manufacturers as suppliers (Ranbaxy, Cipla, Ajanta)and have varying prices for the drugs (58c to $2-00) depending on which manufacturer's brand requested. Ranbaxy for instance, is a worldwide supplier of many generic drugs and have FDA approval to supply their medicines into the US. Quite a few of Ranbaxy's generic medications for various ailments have Australian TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration)approval and are subsidized under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. Ranbaxy's Viagra, Cialis or Levitra generics sell for about $2-00 per pill at ADC and I believe freight to the US runs at about $25-00. It is my understanding that these are the exact same drugs supplied to the Canadian distributor.
