Viagra

The Viagra patent for Pfizer ended on June 21st. After 15 years of exclusivity, other laboratories have started to market generic drugs of this drug in most countries (including England), and citizens now have access to cheaper drugs of impotence. Only in the United States will the pharmaceutical inventor of the “blue pill” continue to enjoy his patent until 2020.

Saving many men get with the arrival of generic sildenafil (the active ingredient of Viagra) will go from five euros if they choose to buy a box of a 50 mg and 55 euros tablet if they choose a box of eight tablets with the same dose.

QuimPharma, Teva, Normon, Mylan, Stada, Actavis, Infamed, Kern Pharma are laboratories that have already started marketing sildenafil in Europe, according to the Official College of Pharmacists in Madrid. There is no single price for sildenafil, as it will vary according to the funding received by each company in the public system.

“After Viagra has been prescribed to over 37 million men worldwide, it will not stop offering its brand,” said europen sources. “In Europe, more than seven million prescriptions have been produced since 1998 and more than 34 million tablets have been dispensed, guaranteeing authenticity, quality and high production standards”, the company explains.

Despite not having exclusivity, Pfizer insists on continuing with its marketing, and denies having planned to launch a low-cost Viagra in Europe as we said.

Generic Viagra

Sildenafil is a drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction, ie the inability to have or maintain an erection. However, in recent years there have been investigations indicating its usefulness in the treatment of other disorders such as pulmonary hypertension, cardiac hypertrophy or altitude sickness.

Javier Becares, head of Pharmacy FJD Madrid, ELMUNDO.es clarifies that “Viagra and its generic are totally equal in both qualitative and quantitative aspects.” Moreover, he adds that these new generic drugs, almost 50% cheaper, promote the economic sustainability of the health system.

The recommended dose, which is between 25 and 50 milligrams, begins to take effect between 15 and 45 minutes of intake and lasts about five hours. Its mechanism of action consists in vasodilation of the arteries of the penis, through the release of various substances, which ends up promoting a greater entry of blood to promote erection.

the consumption of Sildenafil and the like should be avoided in people who take nitrate compounds, such as nitroglycerin, a drug used to dilate blood vessels.

Which ED Drug is Best?

Viagra, although it was the first drug marketed for impotence, is not just on the market. Years later, different drugs were developed with other mechanisms of action and with a different effect on erection.

Cialis (tadalafil) began shipping in 2008. Although it is similar to sildenafil, its effect on erection is longer, reaching 36 hours. Jesus Salinas, associate professor of the Faculty of Medicine of the Complutense University professor, explains that this drug is most often used in stable relationships because of their daily consumption, while sildenafil is often used for random encounters.

Levitra (vardenafil) is another erection enhancer. It is a potent inhibitor of an enzyme that is responsible for prolonging the cavernous body dilation, promoting assembly and maintenance of the same, as explained Salinas. This drug is indicated in men who have some other complication, such as obesity, high cholesterol or hypertension.

With these drugs, it is essential that you have not eaten or consumed alcohol before ingestion, as it hinders its absorption.
Salinas emphasizes that these two drugs have the advantage of being available in the form of film-coated tablets or in oropharyngeal pills, such as mint flavored “caramels”.

The existing problem, which is reflected in its low demand, is its high price. The average cost of a tablet of Cialis (20 mg) is 16 euros, and for Levitra (with the same dose) of 15 euros.

In addition to these tablets, there is another drug, called Caverject, which consists of administering an intracavernous injection 20 minutes before having sex. This drug has the advantage that it does not require sexual stimulation or erotic games before sexual intercourse, since an erection is assured. Moreover, unlike the rest, it is financed by Social Security, and its price is about 40 euros, as reported by the UCM professor.
