Only a few years ago, drug-eluting stents were considered a definite advance on the bare-metal kind for those undergoing angioplasty. Now the situation appears to be more complicated. Rather worryingly, that seems to be the case with many medical and pharmacological developments. Some will remember that Vioxx was hailed for some years as a wonder drug but subsequently withdrawn from the market as dangerous.

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