What works like Viagra?

Viagra other variants
The modern pharmaceutical market is saturated with both original drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and their copies (generics). The active ingredient of Viagra is Sildenafil. Therefore, all drugs based on this substance are analogues of Viagra. Analogs replace the original drug quite effectively and have a lower price. Nevertheless, we should not forget that generics often lose to the original drug for factors such as stability of action, presence of side effects, predictability and safety.

Viagra appeared in 1992 and immediately attracted the attention of the world medical community for its unique properties. This medicine was originally developed for the treatment of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

However, Viagra has shown unique properties in maintaining the quality of the intimate life of men. It was the impulse for the development of such a branch of medicine as «improving the quality of life».

The great demand for Viagra has prompted many pharmaceutical companies around the world to create analogues. At the moment, drugs based on Sildenafil are produced in many countries around the world. These drugs vary considerably in cost, availability and certain properties. A list of the most popular generics is given below.

  1. Sildenafil Citrate is a drug in the form of tablets intended for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The drug is taken 1 hour before the planned sexual intercourse. A single dosage of the medicine is 50 mg (one tablet).
  2. Dynamico is a cheaper analog of Viagra with the same active substance in the composition. It is available in dosage25, 50 or 100 mg of Sildenafil.
  3. Penegra also belongs to the pharmacological class of drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. At first sight, Maxigra is cheaper but it is sold in a blister of 1 tablet. Therefore, the cost of one tablet of Penegra is more than the cost of one tablet of Sildenafil.
  4. Vizarsin is available in dosages of 50 and 100 mg of the active substance. The recommended single dose is 50 mg. The maximum concentration of the drug occurs in 30-120 minutes if you take it on an empty stomach.
  5. Erexesil is available in dosage25, 50 or 100 mg. This is an analogue of Viagra based on the same active substance but at a lower minimum dosage.
  6. Thornetis is not fundamentally different from Sildenafil but costs more than it. The drug is available in blisters of 1 or 4 tablets.
  7. Kamagra is produced by a famous Indian pharmaceutical company. It is available in a dosage of 100 mg. All recommendations for use do not differ from the recommendations for the original drug.

All generic drugs have contraindications and side effects. You should always consult a specialist before taking them.

All drugs based on Sildenafil are contraindicated for persons under 18 years old. Contraindications are also hypersensitivity to the components of the drug and severe renal impairment. It is necessary to carefully read the instruction for the drug because there are restrictions on the simultaneous intake with medicines of other pharmacological classes.
