How to distinguish Viagra from fakes?

The basic rule, which can protect you from buying a fake - buy the product only in pharmacies, which are officially registered and have a formal license to sell pharmaceuticals. Having bought a fake, which usually costs the same as the original, at best, you will not get any results from this drug, and at worst - you may have significant health problems.

When buying Viagra, pay attention to design and packaging of the drug. Form of medication - blue pills of diamond shape in which one side is embossed with the manufacturer's name "Pfizer", on the other - three capital letters VGR and the number of milligrams - 25, 50 or 100mg. The drug is sold in cardboard boxes on one, two, four, eight and twelve tablets in one blister pack. Also, the drug is sold in high density white polyethylene containers with four, eight and twelve tablets.

Tablet contains 25, 50 or 100 milligrams of the drug. If the drug is officially sold in your country, then its package must be signed in official language of your country on one side and English on the other. Pay particular attention to the presence of a hologram in the lower right corner of the package. The image on the hologram changes. Depending on the angle you can see the hologram or the name of the drug - VIAGRA, or the name of the manufacturer - Pfizer.

All these tricks to protect the brand of the drug are entirely justified, since after the formal registration of the drug in the U.S., the market has flooded with a huge number of counterfeits and pirated copies of Viagra. First of all, we are talking about such drugs as Vaegra and Viagro. Provided that "Pfizer" has a monopoly on sildenafil citrate (international name "Viagra"), these drugs should be more accurately characterized as a drug-impostors.

Several companies offer products based on natural basis and universally declare their effectiveness - the same as that of Viagra. These claims are highly doubtful, as they have no large-scale clinical confirmed studies.

The company "Pfizer" has won lawsuits against two companies that sold products under the name Vaegra and Viagro. Both companies sell their products impostors over the Internet from one site, suggesting that the drugs prescribed by a physician, and given the mail-order pharmacy. These counterfeits were sold for the same price as the real Viagra. Some manufacturers of counterfeits, however, argue that there are some medications that really help as well as Viagra.

But there are also some "fakes" of a different kind. For example, one Spanish confectionery company officially launched a chocolate-candy called VIAGOR, which are in packages that are very similar to the packaging of original Viagra and the form of candy themselves strongly resembles the shape of the prototype. On the packaging of these chocolates is written: "You buy a tool that will give your life a wonderful taste." Of course, the price of these candies is rather cheap!
