FDA Warns Website For Selling ‘Professional Cialis’

FDA Warns Website For Selling ‘Professional Cialis’

September 28th, 2011 // 1:00 pm @

The barrage of prescription meds being peddled by websites is spurring the FDA to go after bogus operators who are apparently located in Ukraine, Panama, New York or who-knows-where. Of course, whether the warning letters issued last week to two such operators will ever be received is unclear – there is so much confusion about locations that the missives were addressed to e-mail addresses.

In any event, these operations are quite opportunistic, marketing meds for a variety of afflictions through dozens and dozens of web sites, at least some of which no longer appear to be functioning (there are so many web sites listed that we confess we have not completed a spot check, but feel free to do so yourselves).

In just one case, the FDA names hundreds of web sites selling unapproved and misbranded drugs, including Acomplia, a weight-loss pill that was never approved in the US, as well as an array of pills that are designed to enhance one’s sex life. The FDA makes a pointing of citing ‘Female Viagra,’ ‘Cialis Professional,’ and ‘Viagra Soft.’

Yes, we agree that ‘Viagra Soft’ is a curious name, given that the intended purpose of the legitimate prescription drug is intended to create the opposite effect. And we are not quite sure how to compare ‘Cialis Professional’ with the usual version, although we suspect this name may appeal to prostitutes, gigolos and porn stars. The FDA, however, does not speculate on such things.
