Generic Levitra From India

Levitra® (vardenafil HCl) is a prescription drug approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence. A man is diagnosed with this condition when he has a repeated inability to maintain an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse.
At this time, this medication is not available in generic form. Men looking to minimize the costs of their prescription may wonder about buying so-called generic Levitra from India and other places. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns against this for several reasons, for example:
  • Medicines that have not been approved for sale in the United States may not have been manufactured under quality assurance procedures designed to produce a safe and effective product.
  • Some imported drugs -- even those that bear the name of a U.S.-approved product -- may, in fact, be counterfeit versions that are unsafe or even completely ineffective.
  • Some imported medicines and their ingredients, although legal in foreign countries like India, may not have been evaluated for safety and effectiveness in the United States. These products may be addictive or contain other dangerous substances.
  • Some medications, regardless of where they were obtained, are unsafe when taken without appropriate medical supervision. For example, people with certain medical conditions in addition to erectile dysfunction may need more frequent monitoring to ensure that Levitra is working properly and that there are no unexpected or life-threatening side effects.
  • If you obtain a generic version from India, the label of your Levitra, which includes instructions for use and possible side effects, may be in a language you do not understand and may make medical claims or suggest specific uses that have not been adequately evaluated for safety and effectiveness.
To ensure a safe, effective treatment process, it is best to use brand-name Levitra exactly as your healthcare provider recommends. A generic version will possibly be available in the next few years, once the first patent for this medication expires and the FDA approves it.
