It's astounding that the FDA would even consider approving of these drugs despite the controversy surrounding them now.

"It sounds like Big Pharma doesn't want you to throw their corporate profits out the window just because of some pesky side effects. These warnings are more about protecting their wallets more than protecting patients."

Scary, can you provide a source? I'm well aware of the Vioxx and Dr. Graham scandal, I'd love to see these numbers,
Thanks for the response,

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#behf 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.
