What is generic Viagra?

Viagra and the generic sildenafil, are two of the most popular drugs on the market today. Their popularity has led to thousands of bad jokes and hundreds of cheesy commercials, but how much do you actually know about the infamous erectile dysfunction pill?

Here are nine things you should know to get better acquainted with Viagra, and its generic sildenafil.

There are multiple manufacturers.

Initially, generic sildenafil was only being manufactured by two companies – Pfizer and Teva. However, since the generic launch back in December 2017, more manufacturers (like Aurobindo, and Cambia) have come to the table, continuing to drive prices down.

It comes in multiple dosages.

Just like brand name Viagra, generic sildenafil is sold in tablets of 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg.

Generic Viagra Vs Branded Viagra

Generic Viagra is a viable alternative to branded Viagra for men who are trying to overcome erectile dysfunction. It is reported to have nearly the same level of efficacy as the branded tablets, and the appeal of generic Viagra is that of course it is priced lower and can be acquired with the same prescription for Viagra that you receive from your physician.

The same guidelines for use and safe practices apply to generic Viagra in the same way they do for the branded medication, and you can be assured that the availability of generic Viagra means it has also been approved by Health Canada.

Directions

The vast majority (upwards of 80%) of men who order Viagra online or have their prescription filled in their local pharmacy receive the intended benefit of the medication, and this is also true for those choosing a more affordable alternative in generic Viagra.

Take VIAGRA exactly as prescribed by your healthcare professional. The correct dose for each patient will depend on their condition and response. It is recommended to take your daily dose of VIAGRA approximately one hour before you and your partner intend to have sex. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water, and before you buy Viagra be aware that taking more than one dose daily is inadvisable as it greatly increases the risk of severely low blood pressure.

Similarly, be aware when your order Viagra online that the time it takes to see the effects of VIAGRA varies from person to person. It normally takes between 30 minutes to 1 hour, and this tends to be true for generic Viagra as well. Patients may notice the medication takes longer to work after a heavy meal. VIAGRA takes effect more quickly when taken on an empty stomach.

Cautions

viagra may not be right for some men, and most often because certain medical conditions prevent the individual from be able to take this medication. Patients should discuss the following medical conditions with their healthcare professional before taking branded or generic Viagra. Be aware before your buy Viagra that it may be necessary to discuss any of the following medical conditions:

How Generic Pills May Be Different Than Brand-Name Pills

You should know there may be slight cosmetic differences between generic and brand-name drugs. The color, shape, packaging, and labeling of the medicine could vary. Also, generic medicines may have different inactive ingredients, so they might have a different flavoring.

Herati says the generic version of Viagra should be very similar to the brand-name medicine. “[We] will have to wait for pharmacologic studies to see how long it takes the medication to show effect, what its duration will be, and what restrictions will be placed with it,” he says.
