Sildenafil vs Viagra: which to choose?

Both Viagra and sildenafil are widely used to treat erectile dysfunction. In fact, they contain the same active ingredient. Viagra is a brand name for the sildenafil produced and sold by the company Pfizer. Sildenafil is also sold as a generic drug, which is medically identical to Viagra.

Sildenafil (generic Viagra) becomes available

When Pfizer lost its UK patent for the drug in June 2013 it made way for generic manufacturers to produce sildenafil, or ‘generic Viagra’. It costs a fraction of the price of Viagra, and has made the treatment more accessible to a wider range of patients. You can now choose to buy Viagra, Pfizer’s branded drug, or sildenafil, the generic version.

What is the dosage for sildenafil?

The usual recommended dose is 25 to 100 mg 1 hour before sexual activity. The maximum dose is 100 mg daily. The elderly (over 65 years of age) should start at 25 mg before sexual activity. Sildenafil is rapidly absorbed. Maximum observed plasma concentrations are reached within 30 to 120 minutes (median 60 minutes) of oral dosing in the fasted state. When sildenafil is taken with a high fat meal, the rate of absorption is reduced, with an average delay in the time to maximal concentration of 1 hour.

What preparations of sildenafil are available?

Sildenafil (Viagra) is a blue, film-coated, rounded, diamond-shaped tablet that comes in 25, 50, and 100 mg tablets for treating impotence.

How should I keep sildenafil stored?

Tablets should be kept at room temperature between 15 C and 30 C (59 F and 86 F).

Is one preferable to the other?

Viagra and sildenafil are medically the same. It is a requirement for the generic version to contain the same levels of the active ingredient in the body as its branded alternative, which is known as bioequivalence. Before generic drugs are licensed for sale the manufacturer must demonstrate bioequivalence to the licensing authorities (the European Medicines Agency).
