Fake sex medicine seized in Binondo

Lawmen confiscated several boxes of suspected counterfeit MagnaRX, a drug for erectile dysfunction, from a Chinese drugstore and several warehouses in Manila. Head Agent Rommel Vallejo, chief of the National Bureau of Investigation’s Intellectual Property Rights Division, said the drugs were seized during a raid at 168 Shopping Mall in Divisoria, Manila last Wednesday. Multinational drug firm Pfizer Inc., which makes the competing sex pill Viagra, earlier sought the help of the NBI regarding the proliferation of the fake drugs from China that were being sold in the area.
