  “VIAGRA” isn’t always
REAL VIAGRA

Just because a pill is called “VIAGRA,” doesn’t mean
it actually is. And just because it says it’s made by
Pfizer doesn’t mean it actually is. Make sure you
buy VIAGRA from a trusted online pharmacy.

Made in Canada, Eh?

Counterfeiters often pretend to be
from Canada to gain your trust.
But illegal online pharmacies selling
fake VIAGRA can be based anywhere.
If you buy VIAGRA online, make sure
you know where it’s really coming from.

No Prescription,
No VIAGRA

It’s illegal to dispense VIAGRA without a
prescription from a qualified healthcare
professional. Do not trust any site trying
to dispense VIAGRA without a
prescription.

Wrong Numbers

A phone number or address from
overseas is a sign that a website
may be selling fake VIAGRA. If you
buy VIAGRA online, make sure the
phone number and address are
only from the US.

Don’t trust offers for
so-called “generic Viagra”
for ED

The FDA has never approved the so-called “generic
VIAGRA” for ED you see for sale online. It could be
counterfeit and may cause you harm.

The Real Deal

Real VIAGRA (sildenafil citrate) is a blue,
film-coated, rounded-diamond-shaped
tablet with a Pfizer logo on one side.
VIAGRA only comes in 3 doses — 25 mg,
50 mg and 100 mg. And any other form,
like, “fast-dissolving” is a gimmick
and is not real VIAGRA. Make sure
you buy VIAGRA from a trusted
online pharmacy.

Only comes in 25 mg,
50 mg, and 100 mg doses.

Ladies’ VIAGRA

Real VIAGRA (sildenafil citrate) is a pill for men to treat ED.
There is no such thing as Ladies’ VIAGRA.

COUNTERFEITERS ARE SMART, YOU CAN BE SMARTER.
When you buy VIAGRA (sildenafil citrate) online, there are a few things you need to look out for. Follow these steps to help make sure that you buy from a legitimate online pharmacy:

Make sure the website requires a valid prescription.
It's illegal to dispense VIAGRA without a prescription from a qualified healthcare professional.

Make sure you see a US address and phone number.
This can help you make sure the website is not selling unregulated medication from overseas.

Check if they claim to sell "generic VIAGRA" for ED.
The FDA has never approved the so-called "generic VIAGRA" for ED you see for sale online. It could be counterfeit and may cause you harm.

VIAGRA only comes in 3 doses.
25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg. VIAGRA is a tablet. Any other form, like "fast-dissolving," "extra-strength," or "soft-tab" is a fake.

Another way to buy safely is to look for Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites® (VIPPS®). A VIPPS® Accreditation ensures the website you are purchasing from is secure and reliable.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Do not take VIAGRA (slidenafil citrate) tablets if you:

  • take any other medicines called nitrates, often prescribed for chest pain, as this may cause a sudden, unsafe drop in blood pressure.
  • are allergic to sildenafil, as contained in VIAGRA and REVATIO, or any of the ingredients in VIAGRA.

Discuss your health with your doctor to ensure that you are healthy enough for sex. If you experience chest pain, dizziness, or nausea during sex, seek immediate medical help.

VIAGRA can cause serious side effects. Rarely reported side effects include:

  • an erection that will not go away (priapism). If you have an erection that lasts more than 4 hours, get medical help right away. If it is not treated right away, priapism can permanently damage your penis.
  • sudden vision loss in one or both eyes. Sudden vision loss in one or both eyes can be a sign of a serious eye problem called non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). Stop taking VIAGRA and call your healthcare provider right away if you have any sudden vision loss.
  • sudden hearing decrease or hearing loss. Some people may also have ringing in their ears (tinnitus) or dizziness. If you have these symptoms, stop taking VIAGRA and contact a doctor right away.

Before you take VIAGRA, tell your healthcare provider if you:

  • have or have had heart problems such as a heart attack, irregular heartbeat, angina, chest pain, narrowing of the aortic valve, or heart failure
  • have had heart surgery within the last 6 months
  • have had a stroke
  • have low blood pressure, or high blood pressure that is not controlled
  • have a deformed penis shape
  • have had an erection that lasted for more than 4 hours
  • have problems with your blood cells such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia
  • have retinitis pigmentosa, a rare genetic (runs in families) eye disease
  • have ever had severe vision loss, including an eye problem called NAION
  • have bleeding problems
  • have or have had stomach ulcers
  • have liver problems
  • have kidney problems or are having kidney dialysis
  • have any other medical conditions

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

VIAGRA may affect the way other medicines work, and other medicines may affect the way VIAGRA works, causing side effects. Especially tell your healthcare provider if you take any of the following:

  • medicines called nitrates
  • medicines called alpha-blockers such as Hytrin (terazosin HCl), Flomax (tamsulosin HCl), Cardura (doxazosin mesylate), Minipress (prazosin HCl), Uroxatral (alfuzosin HCl), Jalyn (dutasteride and tamsulosin HCl), or Rapaflo (silodosin). Alpha-blockers are sometimes prescribed for prostate problems or high blood pressure. In some patients, the use of VIAGRA with alpha-blockers can lead to a drop in blood pressure or to fainting
  • medicines called HIV protease inhibitors, such as ritonavir (Norvir), indinavir sulfate (Crixivan), saquinavir (Fortovase or Invirase), or atazanavir sulfate (Reyataz)
  • some types of oral antifungal medicines, such as ketoconazole (Nizoral) and itraconazole (Sporanox)
  • some types of antibiotics, such as clarithromycin (Biaxin), telithromycin (Ketek), or erythromycin
  • other medicines that treat high blood pressure
  • other medicines or treatments for ED
  • VIAGRA contains sildenafil, which is the same medicine found in another drug called REVATIO. REVATIO is used to treat a rare disease called pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). VIAGRA should not be used with REVATIO or with other PAH treatments containing sildenafil or any other PDE5 inhibitors (such as Adcirca [tadalafil])

VIAGRA does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.

The most common side effects of VIAGRA: headache; flushing; upset stomach; abnormal vision, such as changes in color vision (such as having a blue color tinge) and blurred vision; stuffy or runny nose; back pain; muscle pain; nausea; dizziness; rash.
