Viagra by mail – five misconceptions about ordering the drug online.

viagra-by-mailPeople used the pharmacies’ services consisting in the delivery of drugs by mail before the advent of the Internet.

For many people, this way of purchasing is much convenient than going to pharmacies with prescriptions and standing in long queues.

Buying from foreign online chemist’s shops in the US (even from Canadian ones) is technically unlawful.

Misconception two. Mail order Viagra is counterfeited in any case
FDA is actively fighting against websites selling counterfeit medicines. However, this is a very difficult task. Many sites sell fake medicaments and Viagra is the most counterfeited medical remedy because of its high popularity. However, not all blue pills that are bought online are fake ones.

The only legal generic of Viagra will be available on the US market in late 2017, according to the agreement between Pfizer and Teva. FDA has already approved this drug.

Misconception four. On the Internet, you can buy Viagra with herbal components.

Misconception five. Ordering Viagra by mail isn’t legal
