What is Sildamax?
Sildamax is an unlicensed erectile dysfunction treatment. It is illegal to prescribe Sildamax within the US and some other countries. Sildamax tablets contain sildenafil citrate - the same active ingredient as found in Viagra. However, concerns about the safety of Sildamax have prevented it from being licensed for use in the US.
Why is Sildamax unlicensed?
Although Sildamax contains the same active ingredient as Viagra, it remains unlicensed in the US, because of concerns regarding the safety of the drug. There has been a limited amount of research done into Sildamax, therefore the risks of the drug are not yet sufficiently understood. There are concerns that Sildamax could have unexpected adverse side effects, or that it could interact dangerously with other drugs or health conditions. Until further research is conducted in this area, Sildamax would not be licensed for use in the US. In addition, the manufacture of Sildamax is not highly regulated. Therefore, the ingredients may be inconsistent across different batches, leading to altered effects of the drug, which could be potentially dangerous. Without sufficient quality control and research in place, Sildamax will not be recommended use in the US.
Is Sildamax safe?
Insufficient research has been done to identify the risks associated with taking Sildamax, therefore we recommend that you take a licensed medication to treat your erectile dysfunction instead.
What are the risks of buying Sildamax?
As Sildamax is unlicensed, if you do buy it, it will be from an illegal unlicensed website. Some of these websites may appear to be legitimate online pharmacies, however, they will not be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council, as prescribing Sildamax is illegal in the US. As you are unable to buy Sildamax from a legitimate registered source, there are inherent risks. There is an increased chance that the treatment you purchase may be counterfeit. Counterfeit drugs can be ineffective or even dangerous, so it is important that you only buy medication from a licensed pharmacy.
Even if you did purchase genuine Sildamax, there are risks associated with taking an unlicensed drug. Sildamax remains unlicensed due to insufficient research into the risks and benefits of taking Sildamax. Therefore, taking Sildamax could put you at risk of unidentified side effects, drug interactions and contraindications. A doctor would always evaluate the risks and benefits before prescribing any treatment to you. Obtaining drugs from an illicit source, therefore, means that your personal suitability for the drug will not have been properly assessed, which has inherent risks.
What are the alternatives to Sildamax?
Viagra (Sildenafil) contains sildenafil citrate - the same active ingredient as Sildamax. Viagra is licensed for use in the US, Europe and the UK amongst others, therefore it is a good alternative to Sildamax. Viagra is also available over the counter in the US as Viagra Connect. Viagra Connect does not require a prescription and may be strong enough to help you overcome erectile dysfunction. If you require a stronger treatment, there are higher doses available on prescription.
Other prescription erectile dysfunction drugs are Levitra (Vardenafil), Cialis (Tadalafil) and Stendra (Avanafil). Levitra and Cialis are very similar to Viagra in the length of time they take to work and how long the effects last. However, Stendra can help you obtain an erection within just 15-30 minutes. This makes Stendra a good option for men who have more spontaneous sexual activity, as other methods can take a few hours to work. However, Cialis is also licensed for daily use. Taking Cialis daily should help you obtain an erection on-demand, without having to time sexual activity around when you took the pill. An ED trial pack, contains Viagra, Levitra and Cialis and can help you work out which treatment works best for you.
Not everyone feels the need to take medications to help with their ED. ED can have both psychological and physical causes. Psychological causes are often related to anxiety or depression and can be helped by psychological interventions such as counselling and sex therapy. If your ED has a physical cause, medication is often an effective solution, however, some men find improvements through healthy lifestyle changes or using devices such as penis pumps. Making lifestyle changes such as increasing exercise, losing weight, stopping smoking and eating healthily can help you overcome the symptoms of ED. If you want to try using a penis pump or penis ring you should ensure that you do so safely using a device which holds the CE mark of quality.
