Sildenafil: Effective Generic for ED Treatment

Sildenafil is well-known generic Viagra. The first drug that contained Sildenafil as an active component was the famous Viagra. In principle, the brand version is produced today, but its cost is 2 – 4 times higher than that of its generics. All tablets containing sildenafil as an active ingredient are, in fact, Viagra generics.

How Are Viagra and Its Generics Produced?

When developing the original drug, the pharmaceutical company allocates a certain chemical substance and investigates its properties. Tests are conducted when the chemical compound has the most pronounced positive and minimal negative effects. Then, a method and a technology for the preparation of this active substance are developed. Also at the same time, there were developed methods for purifying the resulting chemical from impurities, which become often the cause of allergic reactions and other serious side effects. After all these stages, the developer company releases a medicinal product to the market.Sildenafil - Generic Viagra

This is the original preparation, which has a patent. But the patent term is limited, and is, as a rule, from 5 to 10 years. After patent termination, any other pharmaceutical company can take original drug composition (written in each manual) and make, according to indicated dosages, its own medicine.

At the same time, the name is changed, and a drug with exactly the same active substance enters the market at a cheaper price. It is the very medicine that is called a generic drug – Sildenafil in case of Viagra. In this case, generics may differ in additional components only.

In generics, there is only one resemblance to the original drug – the active substance and its dosage, the main generic component is Sildenafil and daily recommended dosage is 50 mg. At the same time, the active substances are taken which obtained in chemical laboratories by industrial means, which are not subjected to serious and thorough purification from impurities.

Thus, Viagra for the past period of time possessed a huge number of generics. All of them belong to the group of Sildenafil. The purest generics of Viagra are Sildenafil, Potential and Revatio. The group of generics produced by Indian pharmaceutical corporations (Kamagra, Maxigra, Sildigra, Viprogra, Suhagra) is less pure, but cheaper.

Indian pharmaceutical corporations produce a generic Sildenafil – Viagra, which is called soft-pills. These tablets are taken, simply chewing or dissolving, because they do not need to be washed down with water. In addition, there are variants of sildenafil in the form of jelly with various flavors.

Jelly Sildenafil and soft-pills are very quickly absorbed into the blood flow and begin to act much earlier than the classic Viagra. In general today in the world under the name “Sildenafil” is meant exactly “Viagra”, which has already become a household name. Therefore, describing the properties of drugs called sildenafil, we mean Viagra and all of its numerous generics.
