About Sildenafil (Generic Viagra)

Viagra (generic name: sildenafil citrate), an ED treatment drug released by Pfizer in 1998, has expired its ingredient patent as a drug, so other pharmaceutical companies have released generic drugs (generic drugs) with the same ingredient.  Viagra is the first ED treatment drug in Japan to offer a generic drug. Compared to the original drug, which cost a huge amount of development cost, generic drugs, which are generic drugs, can reduce the manufacturing cost, so low-priced Viagra generic drugs are released by each pharmaceutical company, and 2014 is the first year of generic drugs for ED treatment. was. Although generic drugs have the same ingredients as the original drugs, each company has devised ways such as shape and ease of use. At our hospital, we carefully selected from a large number of generic drugs and adopted sildenafil from Towa Pharmaceutical, Fuji Chemical Industry, and Teva Pharmaceutical. The share of generic drugs is 80%, Viagra is 20%, and now the mainstream of sildenafil including Viagra is generic drugs. * Currently, Teva Pharmaceutical’s sildenafil is not available.

The tablets are light red film-coated tablets as shown in the photo, and unlike Viagra tablets, which have a unique blue and unique shape at first glance, I do not know what kind of medicine they are. Fuji Chemical’s sildenafil is popular because it has a nice color and shape, but there are many people who prefer tablets that are not known as Viagra. It’s natural to be seen by a partner and asked, “What kind of medicine did you take?” And answered “Oh, it’s a stomach medicine.” We handle 3 types of generics, but we are able to offer them at the lowest price. I prepared 25mg and 50mg. If you are a Sildenafil fan, please try this as well.
