Pfizer supplies Viagra direct to patients in US

By News team

Pfizer has begun to supply Viagra (sildenafil) online in the US, through a partnership with CVS Pharmacy, in response to the rife online trade in counterfeit versions of the erectile dysfunction drug.

The "Buy real Viagra" service allows men in the US with a prescription for Viagra to order the drug online for home delivery. It also provides tips for buying Viagra safely online, and information about the dangers of counterfeits.

"There are no plans to expand this partnership beyond the US at this time," a Pfizer spokeswoman confirmed to PJ Online today (8 May 2013). "Any similar programme in another country would need to be mindful of local laws and regulations on the promotion and supply of prescription-only medicines," she added.
