Levitra® And NuvaRing® -- Overall, No. 1 AND No. 7, In "Driving Prescriptions, From The Website(s)" -- Yikes!

UPDATED: Corrected For No. 1: Levitra® -- thanks to my correcting commenter, here!

Hat tip to Ed at Pharmalot.com -- the orginal wire item is here:

. . . .Top Pharma Product Websites Driving Visitors to Request that Prescription from the Doctor

1. Levitra® [Legacy Schering-Plough -- now New Merck]
2. Chantix®
3. Cialis®
4. Nexium® (purplepill.com)
5. Yaz®
6. Lyrica®
7. NuvaRing® [Legacy Schering-Plough -- now New Merck]
8. Symbicort®
9. Viagra®
10. Lunesta®. . . .

You may safely bet the FDA is reviewing this list -- and the associated websites -- with a very keen eye. As to Nuvaring, this may be of concern.

But...wait.....Levitra is also marketed by the "new" Merck as part of the old S/P.
