Real Men Don't Take Erectile Dysfunction Drugs Without a Prescription

Buying erectile dysfuntion medications online can be a safe and affordable option. However, consumers need to be wary of sites offering drugs without a prescription and take the necessary precautions to receive quality medications.

Surrey, BC (PRWEB) April 7, 2010 -- Doctorsolve is warning consumers of the growing risk of counterfeit medications being made available online and advises customers to purchase prescription drugs only from Canadian International Pharmaceutical Association (CIPA) accredited pharmacies like CIPA pharmacies not only follow standard medical and pharmaceutical guidelines, but also verify and test the supply chain of medications.

In recent years, counterfeit drugs have become increasingly prevalent through online scams offering to provide brand-name drugs at a fraction of the cost that accredited online pharmacies and traditional pharmacies have been selling them.

Doctorsolve and other CIPA member pharmacies are warning consumers about the dangers of counterfeit pharmaceuticals. Online discount medications are available through reputable sites at a fraction of the cost, but be an educated online purchaser. Instead of taking unnecessary risks with your health, they advise that consumers purchase discount online medications from accredited pharmacies only.

In Canada, reputable online pharmacies are recognized by a CIPA seal and in order to become a member of CIPA, pharmacies must provide evidence of safety standards, including the supply of quality pharmaceuticals made by accredited manufacturers.

Purchasing ED medications online can provide the benefit of anonymity and reasonable prices, but Dr. Paul Zickler, owner of and past president of CIPA, stated "consumers should be wary of email or online advertisements offering prescription drugs without a prescription and they should only buy from CIPA certified sites like"
