What Is Treated by Viagra?

The name “Viagra” is likely familiar to any adult man. However, not everyone knows what kind of disease the action of this medicine is directed against. Some believe that Viagra is effective in all cases when a man has any kind of impairment of potency – it is not without reason that in many countries Viagra is called the “magic pill” in daily use. Meanwhile, this is not entirely true. Despite the fact that Viagra is really used for combating potency disorders, more precisely, for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), it is not effective in 100% of cases. It happens that the reason for the reduced potency lies in the imbalance of hormones or the lack of certain macro- or microelements in the body, as well as in trauma and its consequences. In such cases, treatment with Viagra doesn’t bring the expected results, it is necessary to use completely different drugs. For this reason, it is not recommended to use Viagra without consulting a doctor if you are not sure that your case falls within the spectrum of action of this medicine (that is, unless violation of potency carries a vascular or psychological etiology).

What Are Dosage Forms of Viagra

Branded Viagra is available to consumers in three dosage options: 100, 50 or 25 mg of Sildenafil citrate in one pill. The situation is similar with generics, except that sometimes they are additionally manufactured in the formats of 75 and 200 mg. If the first option is an intermediate dosage for those patients who believe that 50 mg is not enough for them, and 100 is too much, then taking a whole tablet with a dosage of 200 mg is prohibited. The maximum allowable daily dosage of Sildenafil is 100 mg, and exceeding it is unsafe for health, especially for cardiovascular system. In this regard, a 200 mg pill should be divided into two or more parts before use. Why is this option produced at all? It’s all about profitability: such a dosage is cheaper for the consumer as well as for manufacturer.

How Does Viagra Help in Achieving Erection?

Of course, such an amazing property of Viagra, as a positive effect on potency, has a very simple and understandable scientific explanation that has nothing to do with magic, aphrodisiac or narcotics, no matter what some people think. In men suffering from erectile dysfunction, Viagra works by increasing blood flow to the penis, which facilitates the process of getting and keeping an erection hard enough for normal sexual intercourse. Since the medicine affects blood vessels in cavernous bodies of the penis, dilating them, individual results may vary in different patients.
Viagra can’t start working immediately after the intake, because the active substance has to absorb into the blood first. That’s why this drug should be taken about half an hour or an hour before planned sex. The effect of the drug slows down if there is a lot of food in the stomach, especially oily. It is strongly recommended not to combine Viagra with alcohol, because this leads to increased side effects and is fraught with excessive stress on the body, in particular on the cardiovascular system.

Side Effects

The main side effects of Viagra include headache, nasal congestion, dizziness, change in color perception (for example, when the blue color appears green). If a man experiences sensations such as chest pain, tachycardia, severe dizziness, it is recommended to reduce the dosage of the medicine or consult a doctor about the advisability of further taking Viagra.

How Does Generic Sildenafil Differs from Brand-Name Viagra?

Almost every person who is faced with the need to take medications to restore potency is aware that all branded medicines have generics, or analogues, that contain the same active substance that is the basis of a branded drug, but produced by other pharmaceutical companies and sold under other trade names. What are the fundamental differences between brand-name Viagra and its generics, if they are all based on the active substance Sildenafil citrate? There will be no unexpected statements here. The fact is that there is simply no significant difference between them. The only more or less considerable difference between the prototype drug and its analogues is the availability of such generic Viagra variants as sachets and soft (chewable) tablets. However, they are identical to conventional pills in all but the increased rate of onset of the effect. When choosing between the original Viagra and its generic versions, the consumers can be guided solely by their preferences: questions of dosage, price, form of release.
So, although there are no noteworthy differences between the action of branded Viagra and its generics, there is a difference between the price of the original medicine and its analogues, and in most cases it is very noticeable. Generic Sildenafil is cheaper at least twice as much as its prototype, even if we consider the most top-rated generics from very well-known pharmaceutical companies normally characterized by high drug prices, such as Teva. Savings when buying generics of Sildenafil from other manufacturers can be even greater, to the point that one pill of generic Viagra will be four or even six times cheaper than branded. Why is such a big difference in prices possible? Could this be due to lower quality of generics based on Sildenafil? Although this is the first assumption that comes to mind, it is far from the truth. The thing is that companies engaged in the production of generics don’t spend money on advertising their products, but also use the finished dosage formula that Pfizer invented many years ago. One needs only to find out how expensive one minute of airtime on any of the central American television channels is to understand why advertising drugs is so expensive. And all this monetary burden falls on the end user. That’s why branded Viagra is so expensive. Of course, the label “Pfizer” itself adds a lot to the price of the medicine.

Buy Generic Viagra Online

Of course, a fairly large percentage of consumers prefer the generic Viagra due to their lower price. However, buying generics at ordinary pharmacies, especially in the USA, can be difficult – the choice is small, and far from all pharmacies sell non-branded medicines. In such conditions, the question of whether it is possible to purchase generics of Sildenafil in national or international online pharmacies is especially relevant. Good news: this is not only possible, but also quite simple, no more complicated than buying any other product in a regular online store like Amazon. Medicines are delivered from anywhere in the world in just a few days.

Sildenafil Pills Over The Counter

If we are talking about branded medicine, then in local pharmacies it is very problematic to buy it without a prescription. Most online pharmacies are more affordable, and the chance of acquiring Viagra in the absence of a doctor’s prescription increases. However, the situation with generics is even simpler: in most online pharmacies, no one will require you to present a treasured piece of paper, getting which costs a lot of time and money. Despite the fact that acquiring Viagra without a prescription from an urologist is possible and doesn’t pose any particular difficulties, don’t forget that without consulting a doctor, you take full responsibility for your health and for the consequences of taking Sildenafil.
