Sildenafil Teva is a drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction from the Israeli pharmaceutical company Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd, which has subsidiaries in 19 countries and produces more than 200 popular pharmaceutical brands. The company specialises in the production of generics and active ingredients for medicines.
Sildenafil Teva is one of such generic drugs (generic Viagra) that uses the same active ingredient as Viagra (Sildenafil citrate).
The drug restores male erectile function by restoring blood supply to the pelvic organs. The drug begins to work after 40–60 minutes, and the effect lasts 4–6 hours. During this time, a man may have many erections.
What is the distinguishing feature of these pills? It is a dosage form. Unlike the original Viagra, which has the form of blue oral tablets, Sildenafil Teva is white film-coated tablets. The tablet film coating helps delay the release of the active ingredient before it enters the stomach, so the effectiveness of the medicine is the same even when taken after a meal. Sildenafil Teva is available as 20 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg tablets.
As of 2022, TGA, the Austrian government agency responsible for evaluating and monitoring food and drug products, did not officially approve Sildenafil Teva. However, TGA approved over 20 other Teva brand drugs, freely available in Australian drugstores.
Meanwhile, Sildenafil Teva is widely used all over the world. In New Zealand, Sildenafil Teva was approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction on July 7, 2011. The European Union approved Sildenafil Teva for the treatment of erectile dysfunction on 30/11/2009.
Sildenafil Teva is a classic example of generic Viagra. Containing the same active ingredient as the original medicine, this drug restores erectile dysfunction by relaxing the blood vessels of the penis for their subsequent filling with blood at the time of sexual arousal.
So, Sildenafil Teva restores the natural mechanism of erection, which begins with sexual arousal and ends with ejaculation.
In Australia, Sildenafil Teva is not officially approved by TGA.
