Viagra, how do I tell if it's real or fake?

I would like to try Viagra but I have heard that some of the pills that are sold online are not the genuine article. Is there anyway of knowing that what a website is offering is the real deal or some cheap imitation. [ removed ]

Have you asked your doctor for samples? All three of my doctors are more than willing to give samples to help me save on cost.

I'm not sure if doctors in the UK do this, but in any case I would prefer to try this out for myself first. Visiting my doctor would be my last resort. My main concern is knowing if what I am getting is genuine.

In the USA, you will get real Viagra at all major Pharmacies.

Most of the online stuff is fake.

If you have a real problem see a doctor for a prescription. Otherwise, forget it.

I only buy online and haven't had a problem. How do you tell if it's real? If it works! For me a flushed face and a 'steel pipe'

Cheap and generic does not mean fake you know. You can bet Chinese and Indians cannot afford to pay $8 a pill. (Probably a days wage) The companies there know the ingrediants and set an affordable price. What we pay online is probably alot more than they do but far less than they rip us off here for. Viva free trade!!

I have been buying mine from India. Have had no problem with their drugs. Along with Viagra, I also get Nexium and Ultram. I buy the generics and they all work just as well as the name brand. Only problem, it takes about 3 to 4 weeks to get to the USA.

Not always true. During testing, with some people a placebo worked just as good as the real drug.

Ok, but are the generic versions safe? I have heard that some of them can be very risky as they have not been tested properly (maybe a rumour put around by the original manufacturer).

Has anyone bought from the link sponsored by this site every time we type >> Viagra <<. It looks pretty cheap compared to some, if so how did you get on with it?

If it means I am putting myself at risk, maybe it's better to buy the original stuff.
