Buying Viagra over the Internet could give you a heart attack !
LONDON : Doctors are warning people not to buy the anti-impotency drug, Viagra, over the internet, because they have found conclusive evidence that it is usually fake and could lead to a number of side effects, including a heart attack.
According to the Daily Mail, doctors from the University of London, tested several samples of Viagra sold on the web and found some of the pills contained different components or less of the active ingredient than the drug which is made by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc.
The doctors found that a shocking 50 percent of the Viagra sold over the Internet was fake and they was being made in several far-flung countries countries like Thailand, India and Malta.
They say that people should stay away from suspicious looking sites which sell cheaper drugs, because the peddlers fool people by selling pills which are encased in similar packaging.
"What we are talking about is somebody selling something as Viagra which is clearly not made by Pfizer," the report quoted Professor Tony Moffat as saying.
"Part of the side reaction of the sildenafil is increased heart pressure, so people could get heart attacks. If you go to a site that looks a bit wonky, they are selling it cheap and you’ve got no address or idea where they are based, you are chancing it," he added.
