Don't you get annoyed with the escalating price-rates of prescription drugs? If so, then please dont loose heart. The generic pharmacies are available at your rescue. The pharmacy, which specializes in offering generic drugs at affordable price to customers, is hailed as a generic pharmacy. In generic drugs the active components, quality, prescribed amount, routes of administration and strong points of a medicine are the same to that of its brand-name equivalent. And while taking about generic drugs, the first name that strikes our mind is generic viagra.

The term viagra usually refers to Sildenafil citrate, which was created by the eminent Pfizer pharmaceutical company. For treating erectile dysfunction and PAH or pulmonary arterial hypertension, sildenafil citrate is the best possible option. So, people suffering from erectile dysfunction who cannot afford the expensive branded pills dont have to lead a life devoid of sexual activities today. The generic pharmacies can bring you the generic viagra at the most affordable price-rates. Generic Cialis and Generic Levitra, the two closest competitors of generic viagra, are largely available in several generic pharmacies.

After inventing a new medication, the manufacturer of the drug sells it under a certain brand name and guards it with a patent and copyright. The manufacturers of generic viagra, after the exclusive rights on the viagra had been lifted over, can use the same active elements of the branded drug to introduce supplementary medications in the market. If compared to their brand-name counterparts, the generic viagra offered by the generic pharmacies are quite cheaper. This feature of the generic drugs makes these products really coveted items.

The shape of the drugs, the fillers like flavors and colors, packaging and labeling and the expiry date of the viagra are the various areas where the generic drugs differ from the branded drugs. Though the looks of the generic viagra are quite different from the branded sex-enhancement pills, the same ingredients are used in the products to execute their functions. The benefits of these generic medicines will remain unchanged. If two separate companies are into the production of the generics of the same brand name viagra, they will, obviously, look dissimilar.

The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention of Germany (PIC), Medicines Control Agency (MCA) of UK, National Institute of Pharmacy of Hungary (NIP), Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia (TGA), Medicines Control Council of South Africa (MCC) and the World Health Organization always supervise within their respective jurisdictions whether the generic drugs or viagra are able to satisfy the customers in terms of quality, effectiveness and purity.

Before bringing in the generic version of a viagra, its the responsibility of the manufacturer or pharmacy to prove the efficacy of the drugs to the FDA or other such organizations. Once the regulatory authorities give their green signal, only then the pharmacies start selling the drugs. So, the question regarding the safety of the generic drugs, including viagra, never arises. It is not necessary that you will get the generic version of all the viagra after their brand name versions patent gets over. It is solely upto the pharmacies whether they are interested in producing the generic counterpart of a certain viagra. However, you can come across the generic equivalents of approximately half of all brand-name drugs.

Free of cost consultation services are available online at certain generic pharmacies. You are always free to call the organizational associates over phone and can solve all your queries that come to your mind regarding the generic viagra.

The pharmacies make use of the latest manufacturing technologies in producing the generic drugs. In some instances, overseas pharmaceutical companies come into the picture.
