Counterfeit drugs can kill. They are crafted together in dirty, disgusting unhygienic environments by criminals with no pharmaceutical background and no regards for your life.

“Counterfeit drugs can kill. They are crafted together in dirty, disgusting unhygienic environments by criminals with no pharmaceutical background and no regards for human life. It is for this reason that UK-produced inexpensive generic versions of pricey branded drugs are now taking off in a big way, no longer do people have to buy dangerous cheap and somewhat questionable drugs from illegal websites that are posing as pharmacies” said David Bailey, Managing Director of Medical Specialists™ Online Pharmacy.

Internet search engines are crowded with these illegal web sites masquerading as pharmacies, but they can be easily spotted, especially when selling things like Kamagra, Viagra Pro, Viagra jelly or liquid, or they offer “buy 6 and get 2 free” etc. All of these are counterfeit, illegal and unlicensed, which means there is no quality control, no Doctor and no Pharmacist…and therefore should be a no-brainer. Simply avoid at all costs!

Pfizer’s popular erectile dysfunction medication Viagra is one of the most popular and commonly imitated drugs in the world, but cheap fakes have been found to contain a variety of shocking and toxic ingredients that could prove fatal if ingested, or those that do survive may even be left with permanent brain or heart damage.

Tests carried out on previously seized counterfeit Viagra has been found to contain dangerous chemicals. Perhaps the most gruesome of all was one repugnant batch of pills sold in South Korea that contain the remains of human foetuses. Still want to buy those impotence pills just because they are cheap?...Thought not.

Fully registered genuine pharmacies should have doctors on hand to carefully review any consultation and a patient's suitability – something no illegal website or counterfeiter will ever do. The criminals are simply looking for money and don’t care if men happen to be also taking other medications, such as Nitroglycerin – a treatment for angina – which when combined with Viagra can cause a sudden drop in blood pressure and bring on a potentially-fatal heart attack.

It is understandable people want to save money, but this saved money cannot be taken to the grave. “I can buy Viagra cheap from my mate down the pub” is something Medical Specialists™ hear on a regular basis from men seeking treatment for their erectile dysfunction problems, and is a primary reason why the pharmaceutical industry faces a constant battle to stamp out the counterfeiters and their dangerous poorly-made drugs before more lives are lost.

There is no reason to risk health, potential embarrassment (fake drugs more often than not simply don’t work), fines and imprisonment by becoming involved with counterfeit drugs, when generic medications cost so little to obtain.

Purchasing medications off the internet has become a worrying thing for many people, but it should be a relief to know that Medical Specialists™ are continuing the fight against the counterfeiters and will not stop until they have all been blitzed away. There are many ways to spot a fake online pharmacy and one of the most obvious red flags to be aware of is if the website does not clearly display the green cross logo and pharmacy number on the home page – which can be verified.

Those who buy medicines from illegal website have no idea what it is they are getting, where the drug originated from or if it is even safe to take. The dose may be too low or too high, the active ingredients may be so poorly manufactured that it struggles to break down in the body, rendering it effective. In addition, credit card and identity fraud are two major risks with illegal websites.

The internet need not be a source of concern when looking for medication or indeed any other medical product or service. People just need to be aware of the main and obvious pitfalls of an illegal website.
