    I know there are some online pharmacies that advertise online consultations and prescribe prescriptions for drugs like viagra without ever seeing a doctor in person. Are these sites legal? How about overseas pharmacies?

    Shouldn't imagine it is illegal in these free marketeering day, but it is extremely unwise.

    Buying from overseas "pharmacies" is not legal.

    Why not talk to your doctor? They have free samples and can direct you to legitimate sources.

    I just want to give it a try. I don't "need" it but I'm curious as to how it might work for me. Especially since I still get nervous with new partners and can worry myself into a problem lol.

    Just want to try a 25mg pill. Maybe even cut that in half. How big are the free samples?

    Buying prescription drugs online WITHOUT a prescription is illegal in the USA. The sites that advertise a "Doctor Consultation" are not located in the USA and are illegal as well. The only legitimate source,legally, is a prescription from your doctor that you fill at a pharmacy in the USA.

    Wondering, that does it have some serious side effcts if you have
    high BP?
    But you still want to use it for some reasons.

    EDIT: Interesting to hear from someone who already used it.

    What you might purchase on line from a foreign country could be oregano for all you know.

    Even though some of the responses say buying online is illegal, who among you have never done something illegal? Yeah, that's what I thought. I have bought on line and had good results with "Manly." my doctor who I paid $80 for an office visit prescribed Levitra: at $15 a pop! And yes, my pop was worth that. I am on BP med also and he cleared me. I cut the pill in half at his suggestion and it worked just as well. With the Manly product, which is sildenafin citrate (?), i can use one half of a dose for about $1.50 and it gives me a fine erection for fucking or jacking. As my doctor warned me, Levitra gives me a screaming headache!!!!! I have never had a bout with BP out of range with either of these products. good luck and enjoy a nice plump, raging hardon!

    It's illegal for a reason. What makes you think the product is the real thing? People sell fake drywall to make a buck, why would you risk buying medication?

    you're good to go. who the fuck is the government to say you can't put something in your own body?

    online stuff is legit too, but there are tons of scams out there as well.

    First the legality is questionable. But, the main problem is not legality it is the legitimacy of the actual medication. Inside US Borders this stuff is absolutely outrageous. The rest of the world buys exactly the same medications made by the same US manufacturers for 1/3 or less of the cost that we pay for it.

    If you need help with this kind of thing the only reference is the experience of others that you know.

    People do this one every day and good or bad it will continue. In this economy if what is being purchased is "legit" that is all one can ask for.

    Also, the free sample bandwagon has for the most part dried up. I have multiple friends that are MD's. What they receive in the mail are "empty packages" these days.

    Good luck on this one!

    I don't think it is, but i'd be more worried about quality than the law. I've tried the real thing myself, and boy does it work, a little too well.

    Well...I just "took the risk" and had generic Viagrasent to my PO Box. I looked all over the net and I know it's not legal, but whatever...I'll see what happens!

    Actually, you can get away with buying generic viagra online from legitimate pharmacies in Canada, but if they're legitimate they'll insist that you mail them an original prescription from your doctor. There is also a limit to the amount you can order. Here's an explanation from the SuddenlySenior website: [Bush has made importation and all its savings illegal, but the US Food and Drug Administration has allowed the mail-order service direct to customers under a "compassionate non-enforcement" policy to help Americans unable to afford the higher-cost medicine at home. No one has ever been arrested or threatened for importing drugs from our northern neighbor. Millions of Americans are now "breaking the law." I know I am.]

    The Canadian FDA holds drugs to the same standard as does the US and you can count on such a legitimate generic being of the same potency and safety as the US name brand. I ordered some from Canada and found that the Canadian price was half of what you would pay in the US. When the generic arrived I found that it was made by Ranbaxy, in India. So I tracked down sources in India who will sell the Ranbaxy product for one-fifth to one-tenth the price of Viagra. But now you're talking illegal. It is my understanding, however, that the US enforcement of the law is aimed solely at the supplier and not the end user, excepting of course for narcotics and other drugs that are covered by the Controlled Substances Act, which Viagra is not. Ordering from non-legit sources in India you also run the risk of being ripped off and will at the very least find that your e-mail address has been sold to countless other sources who will be spamming you to death with offers of cheap ED drugs and other stiff-dick enhancements. So buyer beware.

    The good news is that Pfizer's patent on Viagra will be running out over the next couple of years and when it goes generic in this country that will drive the price of all ED drugs down.

    Does anyone know when Pfizer's patent on Viagra actually runs out, allowing the manufacture of legal generic versions? If I recall Viagra beat the other two principal ED meds off the mark by a year or more, so its patent would expire first.

    SilverTipt, I, too, ordered 20 generic Cialis tablets from the Canadian Pharmacy site -- at about $3.70 per tablet vs. about $12-13 USD stateside pharmacy price. Not to mention, Medicare doesn't cover these meds stateside (some sort of puritanical holdover about sex-connected things?) - but my military health benefits do -- a big whopping 6 tablets a month max! LOLOLOL So, even splitting them in half, and given Cialis lasts up to 36 hours -- that's maybe rationing sex a bit too much! (I'm waiting for the package in the mail as I write this)

    I also have just ordered from a foreign source (Belize) to try out the generic Levitra at a low price and ordered a sample pac tablets of a mix of generic Viagra, Levitra and Cialis for $14 -- I'll see if they're just oregano or actually a generic version of the real patented thing.

    As you say, the source for much of these out of country drugs is in India -- and reportedly the Indian pharmaceutical industry is HUGE and legitimate.

    I hope that's true. It would be great to have a less expensive source for the "back-up factor" when you think you might want that reassurance at the right time! (like the big sex party coming up!) <grin>

    pharmacydoctor.co.uk does an online prescription, but you can't buy one! Get a packet of the 100mg @ £8 a pill & cut to suit i.e 2 or 3 times as it's a rare day to need the full strength. It is genuine Viagra.

    Make it legal by LYING! to your doctor. I love this woman, & haven't got it up for her for 6 months, I think the relationship will break up, blah, blah etc. - is the kind of story that gets you a prescription, & once you have it, you can re-order at your leisure. The added benefit is that it's real, & your Doc will inform you if it could kill you by taking it.

    BTW never take Viagra with Poppers(amyl/alkyl nitrates) - that can kill anyone - very high risk sex indeed!

    I'd be grateful for any advice on cheaper substitutes.

    I only got them because I just didn't have any urge with the missus at the time, despite "flying solo" like a fighter pilot. It didn't work that well as the urge just wasn't there.

    There's also a danger of psychological addiction to them, but I seem to have marathon sessions with or without. However, if you've just done a 12 hour shift & are knackered, & you're only seeing your girlfriend just that night in a week - it's a good standby.

    Trust me - man up & lie to your doctor - it'll stand you in good stead for the rest of your life! Lol.

    You don't have to lie...

    There are more liberal doctors around too, if you are into that thing.

    If the stuff you got sold as "Manly" is sildenafil citrate, then it's Viagra.

    What's your point about calling out people who state online purchases may be illegal? If someone has done something illegal, they aren't qualified to comment?
