Generic Form Of Viagra

Generic Form Of Viagra

Manufacturer

The makers of Viagra, unless they decide to sell the brand or are acquired by a rival firm, will always be Pfizer.

Sildenafil on the other hand, is open to wider reproduction, and can be made any pharmaceutical company; provided that they adhere to the same preparation and manufacturing conditions observed to make the original.

It should be noted that Pfizer have also entered the generic market for Sildenafil, and produce their own version.

Price

Sildenafil, as a generic medication, is cheaper than its branded counterpart.

Here at Treated.com, prices for the generic start at £14.99, whereas those for Viagra start at £29.

Essentially, when buying Viagra the patient is paying for the brand, and the product which has been sold to millions.

As the sole makers of Viagra, Pfizer can charge a higher price for the drug. But Sildenafil, which performs the job and is subject to the same production practices, is made by several competing companies, resulting in lower pricing.

Efficacy, Side Effects and Contraindications

The results of the products are clinically the same.

As previously mentioned, Viagra and Sildenafil have the same active ingredient, and perform the same function in the body. This means that they have the same rate of efficacy, carry the same risks of side effects, and are subject to the same contraindicatory restrictions.

Despite the fact that Sildenafil is available, there is a reason that Viagra continues to sell so well; because it is the most established and recognisable prescription medication available for impotence, and will perhaps remain to be for some time.

How You Can Get It

Neither of these medications are available over-the-counter. A doctor will always need to check your suitability for the drug before issuing it to you. More info here.

Viagra can be bought in person or online privately, with a prescription. Some patients may, however, be able to get Sildenafil treatment on the NHS.

How popular is Cialis?

On GoodRx, Cialis is currently the second most popular PDE5 inhibitor, the class of medications that also includes Viagra and Levitra. It’s the most popular of the medications specifically used to treat ED (sildenafil / Revatio is the most popular in the class, but it is only approved for pulmonary arterial hypertension).

What will generic Cialis cost?

Generally, generic drugs first appear on the market at about a 15% discount to the brand. Unlike the brand, however, generic drug prices typically decrease very quickly. Within a year of release, many generics versions of prescriptions can become very affordable, especially if multiple companies are making the generic.

Dosage

For most patients, the recommended dose is 50 mg taken, as needed, approximately 1 hour before sexual activity. However, Viagra may be taken anywhere from 4 hours to 0.5 hour before sexual activity. Based on effectiveness and toleration, the dose may be increased to a maximum recommended dose of 100 mg or decreased to 25 mg. The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Viagra.
