Does Generic Viagra Work Just Like Regular Viagra?

Official Answer by Drugs.com 20 Oct 2015

Because “generic Viagra” is not yet available in the U.S., any generic Viagra received may be a counterfeit or fraud product. It is difficult to know if these products would work just like the brand name product Viagra, if they contain any active ingredient, or even if they would be safe. Do not buy online generic Viagra, as it will most likely be a fraudulent product.

If sildenafil (Revatio) is obtained with a prescription from a U.S. doctor and at a U.S. pharmacy, the consumer can feel safe that it is the same medication, but may require different administration directions. However, whether or not an individual physician is willing to write prescriptions for Revatio to use in place of Viagra is their decision.

More about Viagra

Viagra is in a class of impotence drugs known as the phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors and was the first approved to treat ED. Viagra causes an erection by increasing blood flow to the penis in response to sexual stimulation. Arousal allows the muscles in and around the penis to relax and results in greater blood flow. Viagra does not result in an erection without sexual stimulation. Viagra and other PDE5 inhibitors treat ED, but do not directly increase a man's sexual desire. However, knowing that one can perform better in bed may indirectly boost libido.
