Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects as many as 30 million Americans. ED medication is in a minefield of illicit manufacturing, with Viagra being one of the most counterfeited drugs in the world. Men should understand that in the course of improving sexual health, the quality and consistency of their ED medication can be directly linked to its effectiveness.
Quality in Medication Matters
It’s important for ED medication to consist of the appropriate active ingredients that are both of high quality and present in the correct amounts. Quality testing ensures that medications contain the correct dosage and has the intended disintegration and release properties.
ED can be symptomatic of something more serious, including heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol and blood pressure. Taking poor quality medication may exacerbate these underlying health conditions. The following generics can be effective for managing erectile dysfunction:
- Avanafil (Stendra)
- Sildenafil (Viagra)
- Tadalafil (Cialis)
- Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn)
Valisure lab tests every batch of ED medication to ensure that consumers are getting the quality assurance they need. A Certificate of Analysis (COA) is provided to customers at no additional cost and is available by no other pharmacy. Always consult with your doctor or a Valisure pharmacist and follow your medication instructions as prescribed.
Consistency in Medication
A preliminary report by World Meeting on Sexual Medicine showed that 77 percent of all Viagra (generic name sildenafil) purchased online from 22 different sites was counterfeit. The lack of inconsistency in the amounts of active ingredients is alarming, ranging from 0% to 200% of indicated strength.
The importance of consistent chemical composition, dissolution, dosage and getting certified tested ED medication cannot be stressed enough.
