Erectile dysfunction is a condition that has affected many men of various ages. Treatment and management is available but at times at a very high cost. But not to worry here is a review of one of the medications used in ED that is fairly cheap.
Kamagra is a drug with active compound Sildenafil in the class of phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors. This is the same class as tadalafil and Vardenafil. Kamagra is one of the most common generic versions of Viagra (Sildenafil) available in the market. It is manufactured in India by the famous company Ajanta Pharma well after expiration of the active element of Viagra-Sildenafil patent protection.Kamagra formulation is similar biologically and therapeutically to the original formulation of sildenafil citrate. It is available in form of tablets and an oral jelly (Kamagra oral jelly). Both Kamagra tablet and Kamagra oral jelly are available in 100mg strengths-100mg Sildenafil.
It is not clear of what other ingredients were used but what we are sure about is it contains sildenafil.
Kamagra is approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension in men.
Kamagra is preferred because it is cheap and men import it all the way from India for this particular reason.
Kamagra mechanism of action is basically through blood vessel smooth muscle relaxation and increasing of blood flow to certain areas in the body, mainly the penis thus facilitating erection of come with sexual stimulation. Both the tablet and oral jelly work in this way.
The duration of action of Kamagra is between four and six hours from intake. Kamagra oral jelly has a faster onset of action as compared to kamagra tablets. The oral jelly takes about 20 minutes to kick in while the Tablets take close to 40 minutes to begin action.
The Kamagra oral jelly is for those who cannot tolerate pills. It is usually flavoured and is available in several flavours including; Strawberry, caramel, cherry, pineapple and banana.
Kamagra dosage; when it comes to Kamagra 100mg tablets, one tablet a day is advised. It should be taken about half an hour before intercourse. Do not take more than one pill per day. Kamagra 100mg oral jelly is also taken once in a day. One sachet and not more than that, for older people half the sachet is recommended. Baseline is you should not take more than 100mg in a single day.
Kamagra vs Viagra; they both have sildenafil as the active ingredient. Kamagra is however cheaper than Viagra by a lot. It is a more accessible form and works just as effectively. Kamagra is however not licensed for sell in several countries including the U.S and the U.K therefore sell in these countries is actually illegal. Most men from these countries usually import it from offshore online pharmacies like from India. It is not advised by the FDA to import any medication but it does not take legal action against anyone who does. Since Kamagra is not licensed in the U.S websites and online pharmacies based in the states selling Kamagra are doing so illegally and thus you should be wary because these might be counterfeit. In India where it is licensed it’s safer to get from these websites.
Sildenafil normally is a prescription only medication thus buying it without a prescription is quite dangerous for you.
What is the price of Kamagra?
Erectile dysfunction can be quite expensive to manage I mean with the expensive prices of most of the brand drugs available. A certain group of people may not be able to frequently afford these drugs. Well now with Kamagra erectile dysfunction is no longer as expensive to deal with. Indian pharmaceutical companies saved the day, Ajanta Pharma specifically on this one. Kamagra is available at fair prices and yet its quality in terms of therapeutic effectiveness and biologic composition is quite similar to the brand counterpart Viagra. So you get good quality at a reasonable price.
Where can I get Kamagra?
Kamagra is usually available online without a prescription. Several online pharmacies all over the world sell kamagra jelly and tablets. Most of these are in India. Websites that sell this drug in the states and UK are doing so illegally because this drug is not licensed in these areas. One can therefore buy Kamagra online from Indian online pharmacies and some Canadian ones. The biggest risk with online purchase of Kamagra is landing on a non regulated illegal website and being sold for counterfeit Kamagra. Before you buy kamagra from an online source make a brief research of the site. Make sure it is regulated, accredited and verified by a quality control body of particular country where it is based.
