    Generic Cialis

    questionguy1111 posted:
    I have ED and Cialis seems to be helping me. But the cost of taking it is crazy and I honestly cannot afford to go on. I think I have no alternative but trying the generic ones from the online store. My friend has told me that I have to be very careful to buy from online stores and I have to choose buy from the reputable ones in Canada. So does anyone knows any reliable and reputable online stores in Canada? Any advice will be very very appreciated. Thank you.

    Until recently buying prescription drugs from a licensed Candian pharmacy was a safe bet, but that has changed. Drugs are being imported into Canada from a host of other countries, such as Brazil, Bangladesh, China, South Africa, and even Saudi Arabia and Iran. These countries do not always enforce safety and quality control on manufactured drugs, yet the Candian government is unable to police the importing of drugs from these countries.

    I would start looking for a "truly Canadian pharmacy," such as www.CanadaDrugs.com or www.NorthwestPharmacy.com. Call their toll-free number and ask where they obtain their tadalifil. These online pharmacies require a valid prescription from your doctor and you will have to mail or fax a copy of your prescription before they will ship your medication (another sign of a reputable online pharmacy). Northwest Pharmacy has in the past used tadalifil manufactured in Switzerland that was shipped in original manufacturer's packaging. Avoid online pharmacies that do not require a valid prescription from your doctor. Order a small quantity at first (such as 12) to see if you get the desired response.

    You might want to also ask your physician if they have any free samples of Cialis.

    Good luck. However, this credo applies when buying anything online: Buyer Beware.

    jandrugs has served me well. I get my lipitor from them. It comes from the UK. I could get the generic at great savings. It comes from India by Cipro. Cipro is one of the biggest drug firms in the world, and the WHO relies on them so I may give that a try.

    Thanks Rxicydotcom and mhtyler2. By the way, is tadalifil the same as Cialis?

    Hi, I have just checked the price of generic Cialis 20mg in www.CanadaDrugs.com www.NorthwestPharmacy.com and jandrug.com

    CanadaDrugs: $450.36 for 48 pills ($9.38/pill) NorthwestPharmacy: $210.99 for 100pills ($2.11/pill) JanDrug: 220.16 for 32 pills ($6.88/pill)

    Do you know why there is such a big difference of the price from these three stores?

    Thank you again for your help.

    There are a number of reasons why you'll find a range of prices from online pharmacies and they are generally the same reasons you'll find a wide range of prices for generic drugs sold in the U.S. The main one is simply profit. Frankly I was surprised at the difference.

    I personally have used Northwest Pharmacy and have been satisfied with their generic tadalafil. The last two times they filled my prescription they sent the brand name Tadacip (which is manufactured by Cipla, a reputable pharmaceutical firm in India). The product was sent in strip packaging (4 tablets per strip) that was packaged for retail sale in Switzerland. It came with the manufacturers product information in English. The quality of the packaging and the tablet's appearance helped assure me that the product was legitimate. However, the only way to be sure about the drug's quality would be to have the tablets analyzed in a lab, not an easy task. I have personally been satisfied with product's performance, but this is a personal opinion and not a scientific one.

    These online pharmacies are aware that many people (especially American's) have the opinion that "you get what you pay for." Americans have historically been wary of generic medications. The American brand name manufacturers have instilled fear in both health professionals and the public into believing that brand name drugs are more effective than their generic counterparts. In fact, there have been a handful of instances (years ago I might add) where specific generics were marketed that were not as effective as the brand name product, but the generic drugs sold in the U.S. today meet the same safety and efficacy standards as brand name products. Unfortunately, when dealing with foreign manufactured drugs, you can never be fully confident.

    Again, I would recommend buying a small quantity at first and you be the final judge.

    sound advice from RX...

    I would add that with cialis, you're own thermometer will tell you if its effective. In my case, I could try the generic from Cipla...with an A...got it wrong the first time...and if my cholesterol level is within tolerances, than all is well. an expensive way to verify, but there it is.

    I don't see that anyone answered your question. Yes. Cialis is a trademarked brand name. Tadalifil is the chemical name (which is how generics are labeled).

    Good information in this thread. That price at NorthwestPharmacy is way better than what I pay for the brand name stuff. ($8.34/dose after a meager insurance subsidy).

    Has anyone tried DHEA?

    I have been taking about 12 1/2 mg of DHEA for about 25 years. I split a 25mg tablet. I think it works for the things I take it for. WebMD apparently doesn't want me to say why I take it because when I tried to say that they refused to print my response. Tom

    I am currently trying L-arginine. Dr Rosenfeld endorses it as likely to help ED because it upconverts to nitric oxide, which is the activity involved in viagra. too soon to tell.

    He definitely recommends horny goat weed, which I also have, but am currently not taking.

    Yup, I've been ordering from Tadalafil from NorthWestPharmacy.com for 2 years now. They are not just a Canadian pharmacy though. They are a network of licensed of Canadian and European pharmacies. The tadalafil is made in India by a top-rated Indian generic company which has many of its products sold in the USA as well. It works great and I agree, only go with a site that requires a prescription. Good luck.
