Choosing Generic vs Branded


Generic medicines contain the same active ingredient and are equally effective and equivalent as the branded products but are available at a lower price. Generic manufacturers have to demonstrate that they are medically identical to the branded product before they can be sold - i.e. they offer the same quality, strength, stability and effectiveness.

Kamagra is unlicensed and illegal to sell in the UK

MedExpress offers Generic Sildenafil or Viagra, which are medically equivalent and are legally available in the UK.

Kamagra Info

What is Kamagra?

Kamagra is a pharmaceutical product that claims to contain sildenafil citrate, the active ingredient in Viagra.
It is manufactured in India and has not been approved for use in the UK. This is because it hasn’t been proven to be safe and effective for use here. As it is an unregulated medication, there is a higher chance that it may be counterfeit medication and it may not actually contain sildenafil citrate at all.

Is it legal?

No, it is not legal in the UK. As it hasn’t been licensed it has not passed the standard quality control tests, Kamagra cannot be sold legally within the UK.
Some websites may offer Kamagra online without a prescription, which is both illegal and dangerous. The quality standards are set to ensure that the medications we use are both safe and effective, so bypassing this testing is a threat to your health.

Is it safe?

No, it probably isn’t. Kamagra hasn’t been tested for safety, so we can’t know if it is safe. The websites that sell the drug online are acting illegally and will often go to extra lengths to cut costs. As a result, you may unknowingly order counterfeit medication, which may not actually contain any of the actual medication and won’t work. Even worse, sometimes other types of drug are found in counterfeit medication that can cause serious consequences for people that shouldn’t take it. In order to get other medications used for erectile dysfunction in the UK, you need to talk to a doctor about your medical history to decide the best option for you. This is because it can be dangerous for some people and not everyone should take it. If you buy Kamagra illegally online, you won’t be able to get the valuable advice of a doctor and are more likely to have problems.

What alternatives are there?

If you aren’t convinced of the safety and efficacy of Kamagra and would prefer to buy a medication that has been tested and recommended for use in the UK, you have several other options to choose from.

  • Viagra is the original brand name version of the drug that Kamagra claims to contain, sildenafil citrate. It was the first drug to be released for use and has a long history of satisfied users.

  • Sildenafil is the generic and cheaper version of Viagra and also contains sildenafil citrate. Unlike Kamagra, this has been shown to be equally safe and effective to Viagra and is approved for use.

  • Cialis contains an active ingredient called Tadalafil, which works in the same way but has a quick onset of action and produces a long lasting effect.

  • Levitra contains vardenafil, which has a slightly milder effect than the other medications and is a good option for people that experience side effects.

  • Spedra contains the active ingredient avanafil and is the newest drug to the market with the quickest onset of action.

What is the best option for you?

In the end you have to weigh it up. Is the price difference worth breaking the law to buy Kamagra that may or may not work and could potentially harm your health? That doesn’t sound like very good value. Your health is worth more than saving a few cents a pill. If you’re going to buy medication, you might as well get a product that you know is going to work. It is also important to talk to your doctor when you begin taking a medication to help with erectile dysfunction. They will consider your individual situation and help you decide which option is best for you. When you buy Kamagra illegally online, this support simply doesn’t exist. Fortunately, there are other options available that are continually becoming more affordable.
