Review and Description
Filagra is a Sildenafil Citrate based pill used to treat impotency among men. Sildenafil Citrate is the main base ingredient used in producing Viagra hence Filagra is also known as a generic Viagra. Being a phosphodiesterase sort 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, this medicine is also used to treat PAH or Pulmonary Artery Hypertension.
Fortune Healthcare is the pharmaceutical company responsible for making Filagra. Fortune Healthcare has a tagline that day they provide medicines made of 99% ingredients and 1% expertise. They are known for making generic medicines in India.
Fortune Healthcare started operations in 2004. With a head office in Vadodara, (Gujarat, India), they take pride in their ability to produce high quality and effective generic medicines from their hygienic atmospheric lab. Despite having a lot of good things to say about their company, Fortune Healthcare remains to be a small pharma company with not much positive feedback as of this writing.
Filagra is an ED medicine used to treat men with erectile dysfunction. For its price of at least a dollar per tablet, this is indeed one of the best alternatives for Viagra. However, this medicine lacks customer reviews and most online forums don’t even include it in their list of ED drugs to discuss.
After searching the internet, I finally give up looking for customer reviews for Filagra. If I were to purchase an ED drug or try another brand aside from what I am using right now, I don’t see myself picking up something like Filagra, an unknown drug and with no one to testify of its efficacy.
Pricing and Dosage
Filagra is available in different dosages, 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg. It is often sold in pieces and in packs, depending on the online pharmacy you will buy it from. I tried to check its price in dollars but this drug is hard to find online. It looks like a very few online drug stores offer this medicine.
A tablet of Filagra costs $1.10 dollar (Philippine peso converted to US dollars). This is indeed a cheap alternative for Viagra that costs $8 to $12 a pill.
How to Buy Sildenafil Citrate 50 Mg Online
This Indian produced generic Viagra is not available in most online pharmacies especially the 50mg which is very hard to find. After searching some reliable online drug stores, I was unable to find any store that sells Filagra.
I am assuming then that this ED medicine is not offered worldwide and is only available in some countries like the Philippines. If you are looking for an ED medicine of the same price, you can also check Finegra, a trusted ED drug that you can easily find and purchase online.
You can purchase Fildena at these websites:
Since Filagra is hard to find and there is not much information about it anyway, I personally encourage you to try another ED medicine like Fildena. If your concern is the price, Fildena costs the same but has more information to offer as compared to Filagra.
How to Use
Filagra should be taken only once a day, on a regular basis to treat erectile dysfunction. You can also opt to take it only as needed, or 30 minutes before the planned sexual activity. The effect of this medicine lasts for 4-6 hours.
It can be taken on an empty stomach. The initial dosage is 50mg and if the effect is too much, you can change it to 100mg or lower it to 25 mg, depending on how your body will respond to it.
Taking Filagra can lead to side effects. There are minor and serious side effects that Filagra can cause. Among the minor side effects are sudden vision loss, and a headache. Serious side effects include priapism or prolonged erection.
Other possible side effects of this Sildenafil Citrate based drugs are chest pain, fainting, nausea, painful sexual intercourse and loss of hearing. In case these conditions manifest and doesn’t resolve immediately, you should stop taking Filagra and consult a doctor as soon as possible.
Conclusion with Rating
Filagra is an erectile dysfunction medicine that was based on Sildenafil Citrate – the active ingredient used in making Viagra. This generic Viagra was a product of an Indian pharmaceutical company – Fortune Healthcare.
Filagra is not a popular ED medicine as well as its manufacturer, Fortune Healthcare. Both company and medicine don’t have reviews. Fortune Healthcare seems like a small pharma company and is known for producing generic medicines and sells it to third-world countries. Filagra, for example, was found in one website in the Philippines.
With no customer review for this ED medicine, it raises some questions when it comes to its reliability and efficacy. Does it really work? Is it worth paying for? Even if it only costs a dollar, a dollar is still a dollar and we wouldn’t want to see our money go to waste.
Just like any other ED drugs, using Filagra also has risks and side effects. These are expected of this kind of drug. I am more frustrated though to find that some reliable online pharmacies I knew don’t offer this ED medicine. This seems to prove my initial assumption that this ED drug is only sold in third world countries.
Since this drug is unknown and its manufacturer has not made much effort to introduce this drug or widen their reach in offering this medicine, I am giving it a rating of 2 out 5 stars.
