And she confirmed that three fake oral gel envelopes were found in the box of CiaLis 20 mg tablets, which are not manufactured by Eli Lilly, because they do not manufacture the aforementioned product in the form of an oral gel.

And she added that it was noticed that the carton and leaflet of the counterfeit package are identical to the original box containing Cialis 20mg tablets, as it was placed to delude the user that the product is original and sold by the manufacturer. The Ministry confirmed that the content of the chemically imitated box was analyzed, to show that it did not contain the active substance for the composition of the drug (Cialis), which is “Tadalafil”. It was revealed that the presence of “Sildenafil”, which is effective for another product, is also used in the treatment of impotence, which is “Viagra”.
