The agency, Europol, has seized 300,000 tablets of fake Viagra between the UK, Spain and Cyprus after they had been imported from Asia for sale in Europe. Two British people have been arrested in the UK and 4 other arrests took place in Spain. It has since been discovered that the medications were being distributed online all over the continent.

These fakes were far from the real deal since they had not been tested and were probably laced with other substances putting the consumer’s health and even life at great risk.

You don’t have to go far for fake drugs these days though, with some less sophisticated operations underway right under your nose. Taking a cab back from town last week, I was only too quick to say no to the little blue pills I had been offered by none other than the cab driver who had reached beneath his seat, mid-way through what I thought was a reasonably everyday conversation about something like the weather or the pros and cons attached to hosting the Olympics in London, only for the driver to pull out a freezer bag full of Viagra fakes and nod at me temptingly through the rear view mirror.

The most worrying piece for me was that until I advised him, he had no idea that what he was doing was totally illegal. There’s no avoiding the fakes and if you’re not looking for them, you will be offered them and be tempted perhaps by how inexpensive they are but beware; they are not the real deal and you have no guarantee of quality or safety.

If you feel that you require Viagra or any other medication to help with erectile issues then you should visit your doctor or go to a clinic based online that is accredited and licensed by the Care Quality Commission. If a website is prescribing medication and they are not able to show you a Care Quality Commission license number then they are operating illegally and you would be well advised to avoid them. The Online Clinic is one of only a small handful of UK based clinics that operates within the law and is inspected regularly by the Care Quality Commission to ensure patient safety is maintained.
