Review and Description:
Vigora is an emerging generic-brand medicine used in treating Erectile Dysfunction or Impotence in men. In the ED drug market, it is commonly known as the “red pill” mainly because of its significant red color. Aside from being indicated for ED, Vigora is also used to help treat Premature Ejaculation.
Being one of the variants/generic analogs for Viagra, the active ingredient in Vigora is Sildenafil Citrate. The main action of Sildenafil Citrate is increasing blood flow to the area of penis by relaxing the muscles surrounding it. In some cases, other brands of Sildenafil are also indicated for Pulmonary Hypertension, although Vigora is not indicated for the case.
Vigora is made by German Remedies, but the company merged with a larger pharmaceutical company, Cadila Healthcare in India, which was listed one of the well-renowned companies in India. According to the information for Cadila, it is a meds, herbal, skin care, OTC manufacturer which has numerous facilities in the country. Cadila Healthcare was given the Wellcome Trust Award (R&D for Affordable Healthcare in India) in 2010. The company is also known for launching Lipaglyn, which is a treatment for Diabetic Dyslipidemia. Concerning the US FDA approval, so far there’s one drug (Metronidazole) which has the accreditation from the regulating body; as for its facilities and other products, however, there’s still none.
Client reviews for all product types are always important as they help assess the effectiveness of any product a buyer wants to shop for. Reviews like the ones for Vigora help other clients to decide to buy it for being an effective but cheaper alternative to Viagra (Pfizer), as they both contain the same ingredient and vary only in appearance and pricing.
There were user reviews found for Vigora and the client reception for the drug was generally positive. Dennis, one user of Vigora praised the drug for being able to help him sustain 4 hours of erection. He mentioned that even if he is a younger user, he also had the same effect from the drug he took.
George, another client, commended the drug for being able to deliver the expected effects. He related in his review that the drug worked well and not only he was pleased with the results—his wife was also appreciative of the drug’s effect. The only downside, according to him, was waking up to a clogged nose.
According to Peter, Vigora was not only effective, but it also functioned faster than he had anticipated, as it took only 25-30 minutes to take effect. He also noted that the drug was unlike the others as it had minimal side effects; he only noted having a stuffy nose like the other client.
Based on these reviews, the clients were duly satisfied with Vigora’s effect and showed little unpleasant side-effect on the use of the drug.
Pricing and Dosage:
Like Viagra, Vigora is sold in 4-pill blister packs and is usually sold in 100 mg or 50 mg variants. The commonly sold dosage, however, is the 50 mg variant, and it usually sold for $1.14 for the 4-pill pack. That price is from Online Medical Store in India and the price for Vigora varies from one shop to another online.
The usual recommended intake for Vigora is only 1 pill per day, and it is to be taken at least an hour before the intimate activity. It is strictly recommended to limit the intake of this drug to only 1 per day. There are also medications which are known to interact with Vigora like Cisapride, Methscopolamine Nitrate, Nitrates, Blood Pressure maintenance meds, HIV/AIDS meds, Fluconazole and the like, Erythromycin, and several others. Patients wanting to use Vigora should take note of these medications and should consult their GP first before taking Vigora if they are currently undergoing treatment using the mentioned drugs.
How to Buy Vigora 50 mg Online:
Vigora is readily available in most online stores. Most of these internet pharmacies are able to dispense Vigora to numerous countries. Depending on the online store, clients are usually asked for Rx to be allowed to purchase Vigora, as products with Sildenafil are usually prescription meds. It is not known why there are online stores allowing the sale of Sildenafil products like Vigora without Rx; but generally,a prescription is needed to purchase the drug. In dealing with these online stores, though, caution should be exercised, as there are a lot of them which take advantage of clients by selling fake medication.
As for the local distribution of the product, it is also known that it is abundant in India, as it is the manufacturing country of the drug. But like mentioned earlier, Vigora is also being distributed internationally.
How to Use:
The use of Vigora is a no-brainer, as it is only once a day (at least an hour prior to the intended intercourse) and is taken with a full glass of water. It should not be more than one pill a day, though. Patients who should take this medication are ones diagnosed with ED meds, and it is not recommended for women or teens to take the meds. Also, those with pre-existing medical conditions should take caution in taking Vigora and if possible, consult with a doctor for further instructions in taking the Sildenafil drug.
Although reviewers noted only stuffy nose caused by Vigora, there are a number of side effects to watch out for when taking the medication. The most adverse effects include anaphylactic (allergic) reactions (skin rash, itching/hives, facial/labial/tongue swelling), breathing difficulty, vision changes/blurred vision, chest pain, fast/irregular heartbeat, prolonged painful erection, and seizures. Patients experiencing these side effects should consult their GP immediately.
Mild side effects caused by Vigora include diarrhea, flushing, stuffy/runny nose, headache, and indigestion. But aside from these, the doctors suggest to watch out any unusual reaction from the use of the medication and report them immediately, especially when they cause extreme discomfort.
Conclusion with Rating:
Vigora was first manufactured by German Remedies (India) but then the company was absorbed by a larger pharmaceutical company, Cadila Healthcare which has numerous facilities in the same country. The drug has increasing acceptance from the client community and an augmented popularity because of its similarity with the name of its brand predecessor Viagra. Reports of effectiveness were noted for the drug, as it was deemed effective in helping patients with ED attain erection quickly and maintain it for hours, with a reportedly minor side-effect.
But, knowing the positive effects of the drugs is only half the real story for the medication. It would have been great to find other reviews with concerns about the drug, to be able to formulate recommendations for its use. Also, there’s this raised concern for the US FDA approval of Vigora as its manufacturer, Cadila, has only one accredited product by the US FDA. There were also recent reports of the company being issued an EIR (Establishment Inspection Report) which indicates the US FDA’s concern for a few of the products by the company.
Since that’s the case, Vigora by German Remedies/Cadila healthcare can only be given 3 points out of 5 possible. Although effective, there is still a certain risk to using the medication since there was a raised concern regarding the manufacturing process of some of Cadila’s products. It is also suggested to consult with your GP first before taking Vigora and have an initial health assessment to prevent adverse/unwanted drug interactions in taking the meds.
