viagradrug_288Sydney: Men have been warned against counterfeit drugs sold online for erectile dysfunction, as they contain dangerous chemicals and pose a serious risk to health.

An analysis of pills from 22 different websites claiming to sell drugs such as Viagra and Cialis found 77 per cent of samples were fake and contained only 30 to 50 percent of the active ingredient advertised on the label, the Australian reported.

According to Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand president Dr Stephen Ruthven, many of the counterfeit drugs also contained undeclared substances such as gypsum, found in fertiliser, commercial paint and printer ink.

The study, by San Diego Sexual Medicine`s Dr Irwin Goldstein, suggested that the fakes could also contain other harmful ingredients, including antihypertensive medications.
