Cialis is one of the most popular oral treatments for ED. It is quick-acting, long-lasting and has few side effects for most people. It is also 80% effective for men. Because it is so convenient to shop and buy online, apparently beyond the reach of some authorities and Police, the internet has seen a growth in companies selling inferior or outright fake versions of this drug. Even the colour and shape of the pill has been copied. However that doesn’t mean you should only purchase your ED treatments at your local High Street Pharmacy once you have your prescription. It can still be safe to buy Cialis online if you know how to spot the fake online pharmacies.
First of all, if you see any online pharmacy selling “approved generic” versions of the drug, you should be aware that the United States FDA has not approved any generic version of the drug. It is still protected by patent, until 2017 in the States, and in many other countries.
Another thing to look out for is any online pharmacy that sells the drug without asking for a prescription, or allowing you to engage with a medically qualified professional. All drugs can be dangerous if taken by people taking other medications and/or who have unsuitable medical backgrounds, such as heart conditions. That’s why a prescription is necessary; for your own safety.
Finally you should only buy Cialis from online pharmacies which have a business address listed. Ideally, the pharmacy should also have a telephone number, better still a free-to-call number where you can contact a customer service rep. That should give you the protection of a reputable organisation. If you are lucky enough to have access to a qualified medical practitioner, he or she can run a check on the drug to make sure it contains the stated amount of the active ingredient. If the drug seems unusually cheap, that may well because the actual dosage is less than that stated. It’s a way of “cutting” the drug to make more money. But what you get is less than what you wanted and you may well find it doesn’t have the desired effect because it is too weak!
Reputable online pharmacies tend to sell a lot of other products apart from ED treatments and have been around for many years. Fake sellers tend to be closed down quite quickly, or shut up operations and start another one with a different name to keep the enforcers at bay.
