If you aren’t having sex with your husband and yet your medication list at the pharmacy (or on your health insurance records) indicates that your spouse is taking erectile dysfunction pills such as Viagra, chances are he may be cheating.
Conversely, if you can’t keep up in the bedroom since your husband started taking Viagra, you are also at risk. Many fifty- and sixty-something couples are finding that this “sex enhancing” drug has made them sexually incompatible.
Is Viagra causing a divorce boom?
Viagra gave up its top position in Korea to its competitor Cialis for the first time.
According to industry data, sales of Cialis totaled 26.9 billion won ($23.6 million) last year, topping Viagra’s 25.6 billion won. This is the first time that Viagra did not take the No. 1 spot in the local pharmaceutical industry since its release here in October 1999.
There may have been a lot of unhappy men on the Northwest Side. A now-suspended pharmacist was dispensing male enhancement drugs from his pharmacy, but the Viagra and Cialis he was dealing were counterfeit, according to a federal indictment announced Thursday.
Michael Markiewicz owns Belmont Pharmacy at 6148 W. Belmont Ave.; the business is in Chicago, but Markiewicz lives in Norridge.
The indictment accuses him of illegally buying counterfeit Viagra and Cialis from China, then dispensing the bogus medications at his pharmacy, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office.
A Viagra commercial is meeting stiff resistance online from viewers too distracted by a technical inaccuracy to pay attention to the ad’s uplifting message. The commercial even made it into a syndicated auto repair column this week in newspapers across the country. The problem is with the way the actor in the Viagra commercial handles his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro when it begins overheating.
The commercial starts with a middle-aged man driving a polished muscle car on a lonely highway just as steam starts coming from under the hood. He pulls into a dusty roadside service station, and the narrator says, “You’re at the age where you don’t get thrown by curveballs. This is the age of knowing how to get things done.”
Viagra was illegally sold from a grocery store until the store’s owner Vasant K. Patel, was found out.
Patel has now been sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay $993 after pleading guilty to attempted possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. He was arrested in November 2009 after a search was carried out on his Shop-Rite store, and bags containing the popular impotence treatment Viagra were discovered. His store did not have a license to sell the drug, and as a result his license to sell liquor was revoked to.
