I was given a prescription for 30 blue pills of 50 ml of Viagara to start my post op recovery, the pharmacist only despensed 4 pills, and said that my insurance company only allowed 4 pills per month, he offered to fill the remaining prescription at $12 per pill. Has any one else had a similar run in with their insurance company? Do you really need the pills for recovery? Is 4 pills enough for a month?
You think that what we go through with this disease insurance companies should be a little more flexible with their restrictions. Any information would be appreciated.

Forget it all. Go to www.alldaychemist.com
Many on here use this site. I have been using their version of Viagra and it is only 56 cents a pill. I cannot tell a difference. I have used it since February. It is perfectly safe and effective.

Don't even think twice about it. It takes 2-3 weeks to deliver.

Alldaychemist.com seems to be a reputable Indian pharmaceutical company with turnover in the many millions of dollars. Off hand I can't remember who it was, but one of our more informed members here at one time posted their financials and they are quite a large international company. Many members will attest to their bona fides regarding supply and the effectiveness of the product they supply(including the side effects). $12-00 per pill for what is essentially a medical purpose is outrageous. At the recommended 2 tabs per week (1/2 tab each second day when in recovery mode) why pay $24-00 weekly when you can pay a dollar. (active ingredient is identical)

HI...Yes, Viagra is an important part of ED recovery.  Most take a minimum of 25mg. nightly, some 50 mg nightly.  As you can tell, insurance doesn't cover anywhere near that amount, so we do buy from alldaychemist.com  Insurance companies haven't progessed enough to give us the quantity we need.  The alldaychemist pills are generic Viagra, 100mg pills.  I got a pill splitter at Walgreens and split mine in 2, and buy 120x2=240 at a time.  They sell them for 56 cents each, in a 2 for 1 deal.  The shipping charge is $24.95.  You can also get genric Levitra for $1.00 a pill.  Generic Cialis isn't available for import into the US.  Hope this gives you a starting point.

Hi JEKNY,
 
As stated above, AllDaychemist is the way to go. Excellent service and their product is second to non. I've used their product and can highly recommend them. $12.00/pill is outrageous and another money grab by the all mighty drug lords.
All the best to you.

They don't use the name Viagra or any of the other Drug names, but they use the generic name for it.

Food for thought and please don't shoot the messenger.
 
I have a friend in Canada that is a surgeon. And he happens to be from India. I asked him for his opinion on ordering meds on line. Here is his reply:
 
Hey Steve .. hmm .. that's a reallllly slippery slope. Firstly, I dont
 trust foreign pharmacs at all .. particular given the pathetic condition  Indian healthcare is at (I say this as a person from that country .. the  truth is the truth .. and I'd rather be truthful to a friend than keep  quiet) . It is a country that is mired in issues with spurious drugs, fake  doctors (relax, my education was in Canada) and doctors that make  butchers look like gardeners (organ harvesting et al.) .. so in that sense . .I would rather stay away from meds from there. Look to Canada or Europe  if you must go abroad.

Yes, food for thought.  However, the company we use has a long established record of world-wide sales and accreditation, under some pretty stringant european standards.  I would also be careful, if it were any other unproven or unknown company from India, but that's not the case in this situation.  I am confident as to their safety and reliability.  If not for the recommendations of guys here who have used them, I would have been reluctant to order.  Personal recommendations are a critical part of any important purchase to me.  I can't recall a single instance of anyone here not satisfied with or complaining about their pills.  In the end, we must all make decisions that is best for us, so good luck with deciding what to do in your case....

Looking to Canada for these drugs wouldn't help you all that much since they charge here about $12.00/pill as well :-(.

Greetings, everyone.  One more small caveat.  I just made my first order - price was as stated, shipping was fairly quick and order arrived in about 12 days.  I ordered the generac equivalent of Levitra as that is what my doctor prescribed.  It seems to work fine.  Now the caveat - I have been inundated with emails for all kinds of products related to ED and even some that go beyond.  Hopefully they will slow down but so far it has been dozens in just the last 2 or 3 days.  Something to live with I suppose.

I haven't had that, after ordering twice.  However, just a couple weeks ago, I have been deluged with the same emails you are getting.  I don't know if a spam robot is somehow pulling addresses off here (highly unlikely unless you mess up like I did and post your email address in the message itself), or we are wandering around and getting snagged elsewheres, as we all seem to have one thing in common- our ED.... tongue

Interesting post. I too have been inundated with emails for all kinds of products related to ED and others with sexual references. Drives me crazy. I can't seem to block them because they all come in from a different name "person". Now the mystery is solved but I just wish I knew how to stop it. I was afraid at first it contained a virus but it seems innocent. Just annoying. I gave up blocking them because they're all from a different name. It makes sense now because not long ago I ordered a bunch of stuff from ADC. ADC is the best. Maybe the answer will come along soon. I hope so. At least now I know its not just my emails and others are involved. Thanks for mentioning it.

This is a something new. I have ordered from ADC many times and this has never happened before.

The spam deluge has slacked off after the first week or two.  I was getting maybe 10 an hour the first days, its now down to 8 to 10 per day.  I use a program called Mailwasher, which allows you to see the mail while it is still on your server, and you haven't downloaded it to your computer yet, so you can view all of the mail and delete what you want, then have Outlook or whatever email program you use to get the good mail that is left.  There's lots of devious trackers out there trying to pull your valid email address of the internet, so the more we surf, and especially the more we register for stuff, then greater the danger of our address being sold to a spammer.  From there it is sold dozens of times, in massive lists.

I think you're barking up the wrong tree connecting the emails with ADC. This flood of emails has happened to me before on a couple of occasions well before I had any contact with them so I think it is coincidental. They are coming from a source that have an email address harvesting program that captures email addresses and quite possibly address books. It is a huge snow ball effect but I've found it usually fades after a few weeks. I be very surprised if ADC took to offending their customers by sending out the sort of gibberish I've been receiving.

....nupe' don't think so....don't misunderstand, I'm not saying it's coming from ADC, but it's most assurdly in that line of communication. I started recieving them the very next day, and it's been probably eight weeks now....more early in the week and the numbers drop off toward the end. It's also not a overwhelming amount either. I  knew immediatley what had transpired....no biggie here though, part of the risk of doing business on the net I guess....and having a brain fade     and using the wrong email address!

I too have been inundated with these emails.  I ordered several months ago from ADC.  However, I have an email with the company I'm with and that email along with many others are getting them as well.  So I doubt very much that it was ADC.

Same here. I've been getting 3-6 emails per day from some jerk trying to sell me ED medicine.
I have ordered from AllDay about 6 month ago, but only started receiving those emails about 3-4 weeks ago. I'm sure AllDay has nothing to with this.
Hope you're all doing well.

    I know what you mean about the e-mail spam.  But there is a key on the keyboard.......it is called the DELETE key.  I use it rather well.  I can live with that alot easier than paying $10 a pop for the name brand Viagra.  I would almost wish ED problems on every member of the insurance industry so they would think twice about those of us affected by a medical condition that have a need for the medication.  It's not like we asked for these problems! But, I am not that Cruel!
