Well-known drugs for erectile dysfunction such as Viagra, Levitra or Cialis are quite readily available in most countries, but they can get quite expensive if you don't get help from a health plan or insurance company. It is thus easily understandable that people look for alternatives online and come across lesser known ED medicines like Kamagra.
You may have noticed how similar to Viagra the name of this drug sounds, and that is certainly no coincidence. Aside from the marketing purposes of making the two drugs sound similar, the fact is that they actually are similar, if we're to believe the information offered by the manufacturers and sellers of Kamagra.
Kamagra is said to be a treatment for erectile dysfunction which has sildenafil as its main active ingredient, much like Viagra. However, there are both advantages and catches to be noted when comparing the two.
Like many other similar generic drugs, Kamagra is a product of India's thriving pharmaceutical industry. Also like many similar drugs, access to Kamagra is somewhat limited, as the drug has only been approved for use in a few countries, none of which are in Europe or America, for instance. However, both in the USA and Europe, the drug can be easily ordered online.
In effect, what this means is that Kamagra can only be imported to Europe and America through direct online purchase, which has its advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, it is true that your confidentiality is guaranteed and that you don't need a prescription to buy the medication, but on the other, you don’t have the benefit of a doctor’s guidance.
With that said, there are a lot of other advantages of buying Kamagra. First of all, the medicine comes in various different forms aside from the usual blue pills. It also comes in oral jelly and chewable pills. These are good for people who have trouble swallowing regular pills, plus they are also usually absorbed more quickly, which means they should kick in faster than other ED drugs.
The other big advantage is the price, as a regular Kamagra pill can cost as little as $0.90, while you're expected to pay at least $6 per brand Viagra pill on average. It is important to note though that the more concentrated as well as the soluble, chewable and jelly versions of Kamagra have a bit higher prices.
Finally, it is important to talk about the actual health warnings associated with Kamagra. Like other erectile dysfunction drugs, Kamagra shouldn't be taken by people with cardiovascular disease or blood pressure issues. It is also not recommended for people with kidney or liver conditions.
Most of the adverse side effects of Kamagra are consistent with those of other ED drugs based on sildenafil. It is known to interact with other substances, including other drugs with similar mechanisms as well as beta-blockers, nitrates and oral hypoglycemic agents. In fact, these interactions can lead to very serious side effects, so Kamagra should not be taken simultaneously with any of these substances.
