    Viagra and Kamagra History

    Viagra is the first medicine created to treat erectile dysfunction. It appeared in 1998 on pharmaceutical market and was developed by British Company. Viagra’s growing popularity due to its effectiveness earned the loyalty of most men for ED treatment. This effective appearance on pharmaceutical market of this revolutionary medication and numerous advertising campaigns allowed Brand Company to become leader in this area and gain a huge profit. Other independent pharma companies were also eager to get a slice of this cake. For instance, American corporation Eli Lilly developed Cialis in 2003, German company Bayer produced Levitra in 2005.

    Viagra and Kamagra History1But notwithstanding these rivals, generic Kamagra gained its popularity as the most efficient and cheap Viagra analogue. Fundamental marketing laws hold that where there’s demand, there’s supply. When a pharmaceutical company, British Company presented Viagra these magic blue pills acquired broad popularity as the first remedy treating erectile dysfunction also known as impotency. In spite of Viagra’s safety and high effectiveness, the price for one tablet makes the whole treatment unaffordable for many men with ED.  Nevertheless, this problem could be solved by means of Viagra generics, since they are always cheaper than branded tablets. It is fortunate that for many men suffering from erectile dysfunction and wishing to get a cheaper treatment the production of Viagra generics was initiated by several pharmaceutical companies mainly located in India. Such Viagra alternatives are sold 2-3-fold cheaper.

    Kamagra is a product of Ajanta Pharma Ltd, one of the most fast-growing Indian pharmaceutical companies. Among all Viagra generics, Kamagra seems to be one of the most popular products offered on the Internet as Viagra alternative. These two products are practically identical according to chemical point of view and contain one and the same active substance, sildenafil citrate. This fact allows concluding that at least theoretically Kamagra has the same efficiency and safety as original Viagra.

    Viagra or Kamagra?

    Unfortunately very often aged men have to deal with the problem of erectile dysfunction. There are many methods of ED treatment including a pharmaceutical therapy. This kind of male sexual issues treatment appeared relatively not long ago and is very popular because of its high efficiency. But there is a variety of diverse medicines, so it is so hard to make the most suitable choice. Which criteria should be taken into account? Let us examine two most widely-spread medical drugs – Viagra and Kamagra.

    First of all, a patient should consult a doctor who can give a proper advice according to his clear vision of patient’s health state, counter-indications, etc. You may also try these medicines one by one to find out which of them suits you most. But there are a number of factors which may influence your decision depending on the situation. For instance, if you want to get erection within a short period of time after the intake, Kamagra would be a better choice. Since this medicine is recommended to be take in average 40-45 minutes before sexual intercourse, whereas Viagra should be taken 60 minutes before coitus. This is a definite advantage of Kamagra.

    Original Viagra effect lasts 4-6 hours as well as Kamagra’s one. Plus, Kamagra is sold at quite reasonable price in comparison with Viagra. The lower cost is explained by the fact that this is a generic medication. Also, some men who took Kamagra and Viagra note that side-effects after Viagra intake appear oftener and stronger, than the ones after Kamagra use.

    Kamagra comprises the same active component as Viagra. So, Kamagra represents a kind of generic version of Viagra. Generics include the same active substances as original medications, and their lower price is not connected with their quality.

    Viagra Generics

    Generics are produced by both companies-developers of the originals (as in case with Viagra) and other enterprises having the right to produce generics (for example, the majority of Indian pharmaceutical companies). There are cheap and branded medicines among generics. Manufacturers spend much money on their advertising campaign, as in case with Kamagra. For this reason their price their prices are almost equal to the original ones.

    The effect of originals is similar to generics’ action according to the instruction and users reviews. All cheap medicines containing sildenafil for achieving fully-realized erection by middle-aged men should be taken in average dose of 50 mg. Patients over 60 years of age should take a half-dose.

    All cheap branded remedies are phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors taking their action only with sexual stimulation (availability of a partner and caress). Effective erection is achieved via enhancement of blood supply to penis cavernous bodies during the tablet’s action. They should be taken approximately one hour before sexual intercourse and their action lasts 4-5 hours.

    Kamagra Presentation Forms

    The first branded analogies produced by Indian manufacturer are Kamagra products with their various presentation forms.

    Let us examine them all:

    • One of the presentation forms are tablets, such as Kamagra Gold, Kamagra 100 containing 100mg of sildenafil. The package may include 4, 8, 12 pcs.
    • Another form is meltlets, such as Kamagra Effervescent containing 50 and 100 mg of sildenafil. They may be dissolved in mouth cavity or be used for preparation of refreshing drink of fine color and flavor. Tablets may be divided and taken portion-wise. These effective beverages normalize sexual male sexual activity.
    • Kamagra jelly is the most pleasant presentation form for the intake outdoors. These bags with gelatinous content of various flavors (orange, banana, strawberry, etc.) resembling dessert. Their dosage is 50 and 100mg of sildenafil. Jelly form is very helpful especially in cases when a patient feels uneasy while taking tablets or water to drink them. Men indicate a faster effect of the jelly in comparison with tableted forms due to its quick absorption into mouth cavity.
    • Super Kamagra is represented by tablets containing sildenafil (100mg) and dapoxetine (60mg – antidepressant prolonging sexual intercourse). It is used in case of premature ejaculation. Men’s reviews characterize it as a medication putting the brakes in emission of seminal fluid and adding more sensitivity to the process.

    Particularities of Usage of Sildenafil-Containing Products

    Particularities of Usage of Sildenafil-Containing ProductsAll Viagra medicines and its cheap analogues are absorbed in blood within 15 minutes after peroral intake. Maximal concentration in blood is achieved in 2 hours. Getting into liver with blood, sildenafil undergoes gradual disintegration and is cleared with urine and feces.

    There are the following particularities of their usage:

    • The absorption process depends on the condition of gastrointestinal mucosa and slows down in case of atrophic processes. Ulcerative conditions of surface structures are irritated with possible bleeding. Therefore, sildenafil is not taken in case of the presence of gastroduodenal ulcer and ulcerative colitis.
    • Decomposition of sildenafil by liver is disturbed in case of diseases with affection of hepatocytes structure, such as acute hepatitis, chronic liver cirrhosis, and chronic liver impairment of any origin. Application of PDE5 inhibitors with these conditions causes overdose signs in the form of fever, redness of skin, nausea, vision impairment, sudden general weakness.
    • Presence of serious kidney disorders causes disturbed clearance of sildenafil metabolites. Organism gets intoxicated by the breakdown products. They are manifested the same way as overdose.

    Contraindications for Sildenafil-Containing Products

    The instruction warns of counter-indications for the products containing sildenafil.

    These are conditions when the intake of such medications is dangerous for life.

    • Viagra and its analogues, such as Kamagra cannot be taken domiciliary in case a man underwent acute blood circulation disorder or acute myocardial infarction within the last six months.
    • This group of medicines cannot be used by patients suffering from uncontrolled arterial hypertension. Their intake is extremely dangerous with strongly-pronounced arterial blood pressure drop.
    • It is not recommended to combine Viagra and its analogues with medicines used for coronary artery disease treatment (especially nitrates of any duration of action), calcium antagonists. Many remedies for arterial hypertension are incompatible with sildenafil as well as medical drugs for HIV, mycotic lesions, some antibiotics.
    • Sildenafil is counter-indicative to children, men suffering from hepatic and/or renal failures, blood-clotting disorder. Idiosyncrasy manifested in the form of allergy is counter-indicative to domiciliary intake. At hospital under the care of a physician its intake is possible in rare cases.

    It should be borne in mind that Viagra and its analogues are used more often by men domiciliary. Before its usage a patient should examine the instruction thoroughly. Sildenafil-containing medications affect the organism of each man individually and with peculiarities appropriate to each organism. Therefore, it is important to consult by a specialist in order to select a dosage of Viagra or choose its analogues.
