Buying Generic Viagra

Because brand-name Viagra® (sildenafil citrate) is currently protected by a patent, no manufacturers are allowed to make a generic version of this erectile dysfunction medicine until 2020 at the earliest. However, many people are under the impression that generic Viagra can be bought online. Some Web sites even claim that they sell a generic version of the drug.
 
Before buying anything claiming to be "generic Viagra," it's important to understand that these products have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Furthermore, the medication you receive could be fake, substandard, and even dangerous. For these reasons, you should not buy any so-called generic versions of these drugs until an approved version is available.
