The demand for erectile dysfunction drugs have spiked recently so have the number of fake drugs.
Dr. David Samadi explains what men should be aware of how to spot fake medication.
As a Urologist, Dr. David Samadi claims that he has seen this situation frequently as patients have difficulty getting drugs like Viagra, Cialis Levitra. Patients resort to purchasing drugs online from overseas vendors without consulting their doctor first unfortunately almost 80% of these purchases are counterfeits containing dangerous components such as rat poison.
Dr. David Samadi stresses on the importance of looking for the VIPPS symbol displayed by online vendors as these are verified vendors with real medication.
Sometimes medication purchased without a doctor’s consultation can lead to complications as patients may not need the medication in the first place. Erectile Dysfunction could be caused by diabetes hypertension. Younger men experiencing ED should also be aware that it could be a sign of heart disease.
