Q. Are generic drugs safe?

Generic drugs made in properly approved (FDA or equivalent) Laboratories work as well as the brand-name equivalent, and often cost considerably less. Generic drugs are cheaper because research, sales and advertising costs are much lower than brand name counterparts. Many insurance plans encourage you to accept the generic version of a drug whenever it's medically safe. Most states let pharmacists substitute a generic when appropriate and when your doctor approves it in line with local laws. TOP

Q. Can you substitute generic for brand name drugs?

Sildenafil citrate (generic Viagra) does not fall into a "narrow therapeutic index" and high quality brands made in FDA approved laboratories are readily compared to Pfizer Viagra. You should however, always seek your doctors opinion regarding appropriate prescription and dosage.

Very few drugs have a "narrow therapeutic index," meaning that a small variation in dose can cause problems, such as too little effectiveness or too many side effects. Drugs that do fall into this narrow therapeutic index include: phenytoin (brand name Dilantin), carbamazepine (Tegretol), valproic acid (Depakene), divalproex sodium (Depakote), digoxin (Lanoxin), warfarin (Coumadin), lithium (Lithobid, Eskalith), levothyroxine (Synthroid, Levoxyl), and theophylline (Theo-Dur). Do not switch these drugs from brand to generic—or vice versa—without your doctor's approval and close supervision.

Always talk to your doctor, pharmacist, or both before asking for a substitute.

Q. What is generic sildenafil citrate?

Generic sildenafil citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited. One does not get an erection just by taking this medicine. Generic sildenafil citrate helps a man with erectile dysfunction get an erection only when he is sexually excited.

Q. How does generic sildenafil citrate work?

Generic sildenafil citrate enables many men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to respond to sexual stimulation. When a man is sexually aroused, the arteries in the penis relax and widen, allowing more blood to flow into the penis. As the arteries in the penis expand and harden, the veins that normally carry blood away from the penis become compressed, restricting the blood flow out of the penis. With more blood flowing in and less flowing out, the penis enlarges, resulting in an erection. Please understand that generic sildenafil citrate is not a hormone or aphrodisiac, it works only when a man is sexually stimulated.
