FDA chastises Pfizer over false advertising of Viagra

The FDA has demanded that Pfizer remove itís advertisements for Viagra which claim that the drug helps sexual drive return. The claim is unsubstantiated and the ad does not specify the side effects of the dangers and what risks certain population groups face. The ad does not explain that the drug helps erectile dysfunction patients i.e. assists male impotence but does not necessarily assist in the return of sexual drive. Possible side effects of Viagra include reduced blood pressure, headaches, flushing and blurred vision.
