The term generic Sildenafil refers to any product that contains the same active ingredient as branded Viagra, sildenafil citrate. Since the UK Viagra patent expired on June 21st 2013, it has been legal to produce generic impotence medications that contain sildenafil. It is available under several different names due to being manufactured by multiple pharmaceutical companies, such as Happigra, White Diamond and Sildenafil.

Are generic impotence medications legal?
Yes. When Viagra was first launched in 1998, the company that developed it, Pfizer, had the medication legally protected by a patent. This patent expired on 21 June 2013. Since then, it has been legal for any pharmaceutical company to manufacture and market a generic version containing the same active ingredient, provided it has been clinically proven to be safe and effective.
Are generic impotence medications safe?
Any medication that is approved for use in the UK is subject to a number of strict safety checks and general regulations to make sure that it is safe and effective for the general public. This is the case for generic impotence medications, such as Sildenafil. There is no reason to think that a generic version of Sildenafil is any less safe than branded viagra.
It is still important to make sure that, if you choose to buy generic Sildenafil online, you are ordering from a reputable and trustworthy company. There are certain warning signs you should watch out for, such as if a company claims that their customers do not need a prescription to purchase the medication. This means that you are purchasing a prescription medication from a company with no knowledge of your medical condition or history. This could seriously compromise your safety. Impotence or erectile dysfunction can be an indication of an underlying health concern which could be aggravated by medication that has not been prescribed to you.

Should I choose branded Viagra or Sildenafil?
Provided you are ordering from a reputable site, there is little difference between branded Viagra or Sildenafil. Many people feel that price is the deciding factor in choosing between the two, and so opt for the generic Sildenafil. Others prefer to choose a well known and trusted brand name like Viagra. The most important thing is to ensure the medication is genuine, whether it is branded or generic. It is also important to remember that, without a prescription, your suitability for the treatment has not been assessed by a registered doctor. Aside from meaning that the medication may not be effective for you, it could also put your safety at risk.
