Kamagra

Kamagra is a drug that’s gained interest online in recent times for erectile dysfunction. Manufactured in India. Kamagra supposedly contains the active ingredient sildenafil, but is illegal in the UK as it has not met UK safety standards and is therefore not regulated by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). Essentially, this means that the actual contents of the medicine can’t be determined. Kamagra is a dangerous choice for many reasons, but luckily, there are plenty of safe and legal alternatives that are available at Doctor4U.

Details

What is Kamagra?

Kamagra is a drug that’s been gaining attention recently as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. However, it’s actually illegal in the UK. Kamagra is manufactured in India, and supposedly contains the active ingredient sildenafil, but as the medicine is unregulated, there’s no way to verify this. Sildenafil is the drug used in the famous erectile dysfunction medicine, Viagra, and generic versions are also available.

Why is Kamagra illegal in the UK?

By law, all medications within the UK must be approved and regulated by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). Kamagra is illegal here because it hasn’t met safety standards and could therefore be dangerous to anyone that takes it.

The lack of regulations surrounding the drug means that anything could be in it, including filler ingredients that may be dangerous or cause an allergic reaction. There’s also no way of knowing what the active ingredient is or how much of it is in the medicine (if any). Because of this, you might end up with a completely ineffective and dangerous tablet, or one that contains too much of the ingredient than what’s deemed safe by the MHRA.

Is Kamagra dangerous?

Yes. Because the drug is unregulated, nobody really knows what it contains, and the MHRA have banned it in the country for a good reason. Kamagra contains a medicine that’s only available on prescription (or in the case of Viagra connect, after answering some questions from a pharmacist). Buying prescription medication that hasn’t been advised for you is dangerous for several reasons, so If a website is prepared to supply a drug to you without a prescription for it, it also raises questions about how safe it is in the first place and what’s actually in the product. Whilst you may have read some articles stating the benefits of kamagra, it’s just not worth the risk when plenty of legal, regulated and safe medicines are available within the UK. Whilst you still need a prescription for sildenafil most of the time, Doctor4U offers an online consultation with one of our own doctors who’ll review your medication request and decide whether it’s safe for you. If approved, a prescription will be generated and your medication will be shipped to you – all completely safe and legal. Why take the risk?

One way to make sure that the medicine you’re ordering is regulated and has met UK safety standards is to check the website that you’re wanting to buy from. Always look for a clickable button that says “click to verify If this website is operating legally”, which should take you to the online medicines seller registry – all of which are approved by the MHRA. As well as looking for this, make sure the website also has a registered pharmacy logo and number which should take you to their page on the GPC (general pharmaceutical council).

Is Kamagra cheaper than Viagra?

Some men turn to the internet to order Kamagra illegally due to the belief that it’s cheaper than other medicines for erectile dysfunction, but this simply isn’t true. Whilst brand names can carry a larger price tag, generic sildenafil starts from only £9.99 for 4 tablets at Doctor4U, and you have the added safety nets of it being MHRA approved and regulated, as well as this price including an online consultation with one of our doctors.

What are the alternatives to Kamagra?

There are many safe and legal options for erectile dysfunction, including Viagra (branded) and sildenafil (generic). Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra, and also allegedly the drug involved in Kamagra, so if you’re looking for the nearest possible match to Kamagra, but want to order it safely and legally, these two medicines are the closest you’ll get. Sildenafil & Viagra come in three strengths:

  • 20mg
  • 50mg
  • 100mg

If you already know which strength you need, that’s fantastic, but if you aren’t sure, it’s important to know that most men use a dose of 50mg, and this is either increased or decreased depending on your tolerance to the drug.

However, sildenafil and Viagra aren’t the only erectile dysfunction medicines available, you can also buy Cialis (tadalafil), Levitra (vardenafil), and Spedra (avanafil). These drugs all work in similar ways, but the potency of each one is different. One may be more suitable for you than others depending on how you tolerate the medicines and how effective they are to help you to achieve or maintain an erection.

If you haven’t tried any of the above medicines and would like to know which one is most suitable for you, our potency test pack might be an ideal option for you, as you can sample a variety of the drugs without having to order them separately.
