    It isn't legal, but it's a common practice. The online pharmacies you speak of are all outside the United States, so there is little risk to them. All the risk goes to the buyer, but even that is negligible because it has been impossible for the government to prevent most shipments. When they do catch them, they usually send a warning letter to the intended recipient and nothing more.

    I use the Vydox product referred to by that Edward LeBlanc doctor guy on here, and it works like a Charm. For some time I was unable to achieve a decent hard-on.. and if I did, it was ever rarely fully erect. On top of that, I would always ejaculate after only a few minutes of stimulation. It was embarrassing as fvck. One day I remember seeing a commercial on TV talking about Vydox, which sparked my interest. They only charge S&H for the first Month's supply to test it out. So I did. I haven't had much of any problem since. I hear doing these things called "Kegal" exercises can also help a great deal.

    It isn't legal, it's just rather difficult to enforce.

    Most of these pharmacies are located overseas and so are difficult to prosecute and shut down; doing so would require referring the case to law enforcement wherever the pharmacy is located, getting an extradition order, and so forth- for the most part, it's simply too complicated and not worth it over an online pharmacy.

    Likewise, with the amount of material passing through US borders every day, only so much of it can be inspected, so unfortunately a lot gets through.

    Needless to say, a lot of medication from online pharmacies is made to somewhat dubious standards, and its safety cannot be guaranteed.

    ordering drugs online can cut costs considerably. A Consumer Reports study found that savings can reach 25% or more.

    Experts say, sites that offer to sell "lifestyle" drugs such as Viagra and Propecia without a visit to your doctor's office. Those sites can charge as much as cheaper the usual cost of such drugs.

    Recommended Sites:

    Generic drugs are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have the investment costs of the developer of a new drug. New drugs are developed under patent protection. The patent protects the investment--including research, development, marketing, and promotion--by giving the company the sole right to sell the drug. As patents near expiration, other manufacturers can apply to the FDA to sell generic versions. Because those manufacturers don't have the same development costs, they can sell their product at substantial discounts. Also, once generic drugs are approved, there is greater competition, which keeps the price down. Today, almost half of all prescriptions are filled with generic drugs.

    It isn't. Those "pharmacies" are operating outside of the law, and there are no regulations on what they do. So they could say they were selling you an antidepressant, but in reality it could be absolutely anything.

    Even in the UK I'm sure you cannot go to a chemist and ask for anti depressants. Who informed you that you are suffering from depression? If it was a doctor he would prescribe the necessary medication. You may be experiencing some underlying problem that is not associated with depression.
