    My doctor has me on Cialis but the cost is very high compared to Mexico and Canada online. As I did research it says there are a lot of counterfeits and they are dangerous to take.

    Has anyone here got online prescription's from Canada or went to Mexico, how do they compare?

    Thanks for the help.

    I am somewhat skeptical of the self-serving pharmaceutical-industry "research" on how dangerous mail-order drugs are. The only such study I've seen that actually revealed what they did, consisted of raman-spectroscopy of few hundred samples that were confiscated by the customs service. The executive summary conclusion was that they were virtually all "fake," and hence dangerous. But what the actual data showed is that 99.9% of them were identical in every way to the brand-name drug, however they were deemed "fake" because the packaging was not that of the patent-holder. That is, they were exactly what they claimed to be - generic copies of the brand-name drugs. Probably produced in the exact same plant as the expensive stuff. (The one sample that wasn't identical had the proper raman-spectrogram, but the pill was not the standard shape.)

    That's not to say than any random thing you order on-line is guaranteed to be safe, or that any credit card number that you use to do so won't be instantly sold to the Russian mafia, but the "dangers" seem to consist of a lot of misleading hype.

    This is at least somewhat helpful!

    Edit:
    You stated that you have a prescription, so this point may be irrelevant. But the dangers of amateur self-diagnosis and self-prescription that often go along with mail-order drugs is a whole separate issue.

    A friend went to a Mexico Pharmacy and got Cialis and it worked just fine! Online I'm not so sure!

    I would never get prescription meds from Mexico without knowing what their quality control is like.

    I have bought it with a script from a Canada pharmacy that sends it from India. It's inexpensive compared to buying it in the US and seems to work same as what I have used from US pharmacy.
