Brands of sildenafil

Sildenafil is the medical name for the active ingredient in Viagra tablets. The patent for Viagra held by the drug company Pfizer expired in June 2013. Since then a number of UK licensed brands of sildenafil have become available from various pharmaceutical manufacturers. These companies market sildenafil branded by their company names, e.g. Sandoz sildenafil, Mylan sildenafil, Accord, Actavis, Ajanta, Pfizer, Teva, Torrent, Dr Reddys, Bristol Labs, Zentiva, etc.

Blue or white pills?

Branded Viagra comes in small diamond-shaped blue pills – Pfizer has also patented this pill design and appearance. Sildenafil is sold as white or blue tablets, with different characteristics depending on the brand. Some have chalky finishes while others are smooth, and some are scored for easy division, while others are not. Both Viagra and the different brands of sildenafil can be purchased in 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg preparations, and there is no significant difference between them in terms of active ingredients.

Why is sildenafil cheaper than Viagra?

As a generic medicine, sildenafil is produced by a number of manufacturers, and competition among them helps to regulate its price and keep it affordable for consumers. Branded Viagra is only produced by Pfizer, whose name recognition and customer loyalty allow it to charge a higher price for its renowned ‘little blue pills’.

How and when to take it

Sildenafil is a prescription medicine. It's important to take it as advised by your doctor.

How much will I take for erectile dysfunction?

Sildenafil tablets for erectile dysfunction come in different strengths ranging from 25mg to 100mg.

The usual dose is 50mg, when you need it (no more than once a day).

The dose can be increased to 100mg or decreased to 25mg depending on its effect.

Take sildenafil up to 4 hours before you want to have sex. For sildenafil to work properly, you'll need to be sexually excited.

Effectiveness

Viagra has been proven to be a very effective treatment for erectile dysfunction with over 80 percent of men finding it works for them. Sildenafil is produced by several manufacturers and contains the exact same medical ingredient and dosage as the branded Viagra counterpart. To receive market approval, a generic medicine must be ‘bioequivalent’ to the branded product which ensures that the generic product has the same effectiveness.

As a result you can be confident that the Sildenafil sold in the UK is as effective as the branded Viagra tablets.
