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.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.Don't miss out on savings!Get the best ways to save on your prescriptions delivered to your inbox.

What is Levitra?

Levitra will last for a similar amount of time as Viagra (four to six hours). The main difference to Viagra is that Levitra tends to be less affected by food or alcohol so can be taken with meals. There is also some evidence that Levitra is more effective in diabetics than other erectile dysfunction medicines.

Dosage Forms And Strengths

VIAGRA is supplied as blue, film-coated, rounded-diamond-shaped tablets containing sildenafil citrate equivalent to 25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg of sildenafil. Tablets are debossed with PFIZER on one side and VGR25, VGR50 or VGR100 on the other to indicate the dosage strengths.

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.

Viagra Warnings

Some medicines are not safe to take with Viagra. Specifically, Viagra shouldn’t be used in combination with a nitrate drug for treating chest pain or heart problems. This includes nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, amyl nitrate, or nitrite "poppers."Taking Viagra with a nitrate drug can cause a sudden and dangerous drop in blood pressure.Also, you shouldn’t use the medicine for pulmonary hypertension Adempas (riociguat) if you’re taking Viagra.
