It only gets worse. Most foreign drug manufacturers are never inspected before they’re importing their ‘goods’. The FDA lacks oversight and the drug companies are running carefree of any serious regulations.

Who is to blame? See how often we have to write about big pharma gone wrong at .

I have used for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
